4 - 13 July 2019 - BC Bike Race - British Columbia, CANADA
While we don't list many international events on here, this is one that many Kiwis head overseas for. They say it is more then a race, its the best 7 days you've ever experienced on a mountainbike. It's a tour of the West Coast of Canada's beautiful state of British Columbia - the trails, the towns, the lifestyle. Epic (avg 50km/day) or Challenge (avg 30km/day) Courses are 70% singletrack. This event sells out VERY fast and well ahead of the race date! All the details are at www.bcbikerace.com
