BC Bike Race – Another resounding success for year seven. Participants from 26 countries all over the globe whooped and hollered through the sunshine and singletrack of this year’s BC Bike Race. Smiles were the mainstay of the week. While the hot sun attempted to wear down the riders, nothing could stop the high flow of energy that filled the trails and base camps.

Finishing in Whistler after seven days of delirious singletrack and repeated enduro segments highlighting the flow that BC is known for, veteran racers pumped high fives and simultaneously cried.

There are no official teams of three, but you might end up making it one if you jive right.

Registration got off at an unprecedented rate, already at 75%. After the initial opening for registration July 7th at 12 pm, noon, the inbound server crashed due to the high volume of demand. Once back up, the server processed 170 registrants in 60 seconds. Within another hour old records had fallen and 415 racers of a possible 550 spots were sold.
