The race, which will cover about 600 km of trail on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and Sea to Sky, will finish in Whistler on July 7. At this point it’s about 70 per cent full, and organizers are expecting to sell out long before the start of the race in Victoria on July 1. So far teams have entered from across Canada, as well as England, Mexico, and throughout the U.S.

As well as a new name the race has a new website. For more information and the latest course details, visit www.bcbikerace.com .

 

For the Record

In last week’s coverage of the Peak to Valley race, the writer inadvertently made reference to Randall Carpenter. In fact it was her teammate Grace Oaks who competes in the 60-Plus category in Kokanee Valley Race Series events, and finished the Peak to Valley in 6:24.67 to help her team, Babes with Age, to place first in Category VI for teams with combined ages of 250 and up. In fact the whole team was impressive, winning their category by over four minutes and eight seconds.

Further, the author erred in listing the top teams for Category V for ages 225-249. The top team was Jules’ Jewels in 24:30.31, followed by the Fabrictime Cruisers in 25:27.61, and the Georgian Peaks Bombers in 25:55.54.

We regret the errors.
