Kris burped his front tire half way through the race and had to stop to refill his tire. This put him a little ways back until Cory pulled him all the way back up to the lead group. Cory gassed himself and ended up 6th today with a burly crash and a slightly folded front wheel near the finish. Spencer had a great ride and crossed the line in a three way sprint with Sneddon and Neil Kindree ending his day in the 3rd spot. Kris edged out Neil by a half a wheel and took today’s stage win and retains his yellow leader jersey. Wendy pulled out the stops and ran with the lead men’s group for as long as she could extending her lead by 5min over the 2nd place Kiwi girl.
Kris and Wendy are both sitting in the #1 spot for the enduro race sections beating out a good number of folks specifically here to race the enduro.
It was quite hot out today so Wendy made Spencer a custom podium jersey for the podium.
Stay tuned for more amazing moments from the Kona team at BCBR!
