BC Bike Race - The Ultimate Singletrack Experience

January 21, 2009

The BC Bike Race - The Ultimate Singletrack Experience is proud to announce the return of Kris Sneddon and Barry Wicks of team Kona, the 2008 winners. The BC Bike Race is proud to have Barry and Kris back, these two exceptional athletes will defend their title beginning June 28 and finishing July 4. They have confirmed their participation and their goal of victory for the 2009 BC Bike Race. When contacted about the upcoming season Kris Sneddon stated flat out the BC Bike Race was one of the best events of my career and win or lose Im going back to rock those trails! Kris is originally from the Sunshine Coast, the host for days 4 and 5, having a local boy take the lead and hold it was not planned but what a great surprise yelled Dean Payne as the two mounted the final podium. Last years victory was anything but easy as the field was stacked; Olympians, Champions and an overall deeply qualified field. The second year of the BC Bike Race was a hotly contested title, a back and forth battle between Teams Trek, (Chris Eatough, Jeff Shalk) the 2007 winners, team Cannodale Mona Vie (Jason Sager and Bart Gilliespie) 2008 stage one winners and the eventual winner Team Kona (Kris Sneddon, Barry Wicks) gave spectators some nail biting excitement. Some of the other notables; Chris Shepherd and Seamus McGrath ran into mechanicals on stage 1 and were officially not in contention but able to continue as with Rocky Mountain's team of Andreas Hestler and Max Plaxton. The combination of last year winners; a Canadian (Kris Sneddon) and an American (Barry Wicks), was unbeatable and they both showed great class in teaming up to win the BC Bike Race. It during events like these that you want to know who is in your corner said Kona team manager Smiley Nesbitt. This years BC Bike Race is ticking slowly towards being sold out and it also looks like there will be more singletrack for 2009 as the ‘best bike race in the world rolls forward. More Info: Visit
