Video from Rocky Mountain details the ordeal. Death by lush singletrack!
What’s the BC Bike Race? It’s a seven day stage tour of British Colombia’s West Coast. Plenty of miles, loads of climbing, loads of suffering but also some exceptional primo singletrack.
About this video then. It’s unashamedly a promo/ad film promoting Rocky Mountain’s new extremely pretty Element but it is also a really, really lovely looking film that makes us want to compete in the epic XC race. Again.
MBR actually raced in the 2011 BC Bike Race. Here’s the slideshow to prove it…
Rocky Mountain’s description: “Of all the events we attend every year, nothing makes us quite as proud as BC Bike Race. A seven-day international stage race, it’s amazing to see so many people from all over the world enjoying our backyard’s choicest trails. It’s a tour of British Columbia’s rugged coast, and some of the world’s most challenging cross country singletrack—all explored while camping between the Pacific Ocean and the coastal mountain ranges.
“Thanks to the whole BCBR crew, the many volunteers, and all the trailbuilders for helping make this event possible! Thanks to Tristan Uhl’s moustache for existing, Tippie for keeping the stoke high at all times, and Andreas Hestler for repping BC on a global stage. Thanks to Manuel Weissenbacher, Andreas Hartmann, Greg Day, Sammi Runnels, Udo Bolts, and all the other racers who came to battle it out. And of course, a huge congrats to Quinn Moberg for taking two stage wins and claiming fourth in the GC!”
