BC Bike Race: Day 3 and Day 4

Stage 3:

Day Three of the BC Bike Race was a festival of singletrack riddled with webs of massive roots and deep moist loam. Basically it was a technical trail lover’s stage.

The day started off with a fireroad to spread the mass of riders out. The course then bumped onto singletrack, which wound its way up, over and all around the Powell River area.

Stage 4:

Day four started with a bus ride and a ferry ride (or a float plane ride for a select few raffle/contest winners) to Earls Cove where Stage 4 stared. Arguably the most difficult stage of the race, finishing stage four means that riders are over the half way mark. Grueling climb after grueling climb led to the final descent into Sechelt.
