For 2009 the BC Bike Race seven day stage race will invite competitors to take part in three new solo categories added for the first time.
Riders can choose from Open Men, Men 40+ and Open Women, and will run consecutively alongside the competitive pairs class as well as the two to five people recreational teams.
BC Bike Race is a journey from Vancouver to Whistler through the legendary singletrack of British Columbia.
“With this move to include solos in a traditionally team dominated discipline we will be stepping into unknown territory,” says organiser Kathy Lilyholm.
“We at BC Bike Race felt that many people were having difficulty locating team partners, especially those not from a large cycling center. We are addressing this problem by adding the solo categories and wish to make sure that everybody can participate in our event.”
