PRESS RELEASE

BC Bike Race is Coming to the USA for 2022

Date Mar 31, 2022

BC Bike Race is proud to announce that it's 16th edition and the 2022 race will be held jointly between Sedona, Moab and Bentonville, yes in the USA, Sept 16-22, 2022. All three stops will host 2 separate stages, with the final 5, 6 and 7th stages to be hosted in Bentonville.

"I rode the race a couple years ago and was stoked on what they are doing up there, we've been chatting ever since to bring the event down south. We'll add in some Sedona Festival Vibe and maybe ride the Hangover trail to bring the wild-side out in the racers."- Mike Raney – Sedona MTB Festival and Thunder Mountain Bikes

The move to the USA coincides with a growth in Snowbird migration (Canadians that head South 6 months of the year). BC Bike Race wants to make sure to provide a mountain bike experience for these Canadians abroad and these destinations are like sister cities to British Columbia, boasting a ton of fun and thrilling singletrack.

"Moab is ready to host its first ever BC Bike Race- I’ve done 2 editions myself – and we're importing a ton of dirt from BC to make the experience as authentic as possible, just imagine Captain Ahab with BC Loam all the way down."- Mark Sevenoff – Outerbike and Western Spirit Adventures

By combining the air travel experience with mountain biking we hope to keep all the participants' logistics highly challenging and add an extra layer of fatigue between the stops, this will truly be an EPIC event.

"No one has ever put on an event like this, well maybe the Tour De France, but we think now is the time to blow the doors off the mountain bike world, gotta think Big and Crazy. We want to think extra big, maybe next year the final stop will be in Vermont, expand to a four stop 12 stage race!"- Dean Payne - BC Bike Race President

Obviously this is a joke but it would be cool to have something this well run and put together down here in the States.

Oh, I wish we had something like Tour De France in the USA.

Each year I plan to go to France to see it with my own eyes but there is always something and I have no chance to go there.

But who knows, maybe one day it will finally happen
