The BC Bike Race will be coming to Squamish for its final stage on July 12.
This annual race draws riders from all over the world to compete over several stages, each taking place in a different part of B.C. each day.
As of July 8, some familiar faces have been placing well in the early stages of the race.
For instance, Squamish rider Geoff Kabush clinched first place in the solo men division during Stage 3, which took place in Cumberland. His time was 1:26:53.
Kabush won over men in all age categories in the BC Bike Race for the last two years. If he succeeds this year, it will be for the third time in a row.
In that same stage, Katerina Nash took first in solo women division. Her time was 1:43:34.
The same applies to the Czech rider, who bested women over all age categories in the race for the last two years.
Should she win again in 2019, it’ll be a hattrick.
The race takes place over six stages over seven days. From first to last, the stages are Cowichan Valley, Cumberland, Powell River, Earls Cove to Sechelt, Sechelt to Langdale, and, finally, Squamish.
