BC Bike Race wants you to ride for free

If Canadian XC stage race classic, the BC Bike Race, has held a spot on your bucket list for too ong, this could be your chance to finally take on the challenge. BCBR, with Rocky Mountain and Shimano, are putting on the Ultimate Singletrack Contest.

What’s the deal? Create and submit a video about how you would prepare for the physical, technical and mental challenges of this iconic seven-day mountain bike stage race. Get the most votes and you could be headed to Vancouver Island for the 2024 BC Bike Race with your race entry covered. That’s not all, though. Shimano will throw in a pair of XC 702 shoes, XTR pedals and a lazer helmet, so you can roll up to the start line fully prepared. All in, it’s a package worth a massive $13,000.
