BIKE CHECK FROM CORY WALLACE

BIKE CHECK FROM CORY WALLACE

Cory Wallace - past winner of the BC Bike Race - is joining us for a fall double header racing both gravel and race! He is currently in the Okanagan exploring the terrain and you can follow his stories on Instagram at @wallacesworld. We asked him about his bike setup: For BC Bike Race I’ll be running the Kona Hei Hei with a 12 speed XTR Drivetrain, with a 36 T on the front, 10-51 in the rear. The wheels will be Astral Cycling Carbon Serpentines with Maxxis EXO tires on the mountain bike. Likely an Ardent race 2.25 on the front and an Aspen 2.25 on the rear. No dropper at the moment but I will be testing one out next week while pre riding. My bike will have a WTB Silverado Saddle. I use Squirt tire sealant with bead locks and Squirt Long Lasting Dry chain lube. If you’re curious about his gravel bike setup you can find it on our blog at...
THE BC BIKE RACE IS ON

THE BC BIKE RACE IS ON

THE BC BIKE RACE IS ON We know that everyone wants to get out and race and we are happy to say that we are still on for this fall. BCBR continues to work within Provincial Health Authority (PHA) Guidelines and in consultation with our host communities to deliver a great bike race and to give you the “Ultimate Singletrack Experience” this fall - with the highest ratio of singletrack of any BC Bike Race in our 14-year history! Implementing the systems and tools that we have learned over the past 18 months positions us well to execute a “Flow Through Event” that meets the current health guidelines of both the Province and the Interior Health Authority. Our plans have evolved through each stage of pandemic restrictions and for 2021, they have centred around the elimination of congregation and gatherings to keep our racers, crew and public safe. Bike races are outdoors and we saw the success of the ski industry last winter. A race is naturally spaced, and can be adjusted in many ways to increase safety. From small waves, to appointment-based start times (think golf tee-off times), paired with all racers required to be fully vaccinated to participate, we can manage and execute within the current context of PHA guidelines. As disappointed as we are to lose the communal experience we’ve enjoyed in the beer gardens and our finish line celebrations, we are doing what it takes to put on an amazing race course. Keep training and we look forward to seeing you in 5 1/2...
