BC Bike Race

BC Bike Race has been one heck of a week thus far for  The Kona Bicycle Co...  The past 6 days have blown by as my teammate Spencer Paxson and his buddy Stephen Ettinger have journeyed together in my old pickup truck to  join the other 600 racers at the constantly moving carnival called the BC Bike Race.  Cumberland-Powell River-Sunshine Coast, North Van, Squamish and Whistler tomorrow.    13603399_10153552771721193_4173310415300212455_o copy

Stage 6 in Squamish today was an exciting one as Spencer Paxson and I worked some team tactics nicely together for the first part of the stage to help solidify our 1-2 gc lead over Ettinger. My day would go sideways from there having to stop at aid one to fix a wheel and then a slashed tire later on dropping way back.

From there it was a fight to get back up to Ettinger and the other boys. The body has been on fire this week although I must of squished a 4 leaf clover somewhere along the line as there have been a pile of mishaps putting a harness on nice fitness I’m currently riding.

Going into tomorrows stage it’s looking good for Kona as Spencer has the yellow Jersey, I’m 1 minute 13 seconds back in 2nd and Stephen Ettinger is a further minute back in 3rd.   Looking forward to one last kick at the can during Stage 7 in Whistler tomorrow to cap what has been one hell of a roller coast ride..
