From Cory Wallace – Stage 1 of the Singletrack race started today with myself winning the stage and Sneddon coming in a close 2nd. Full results and race info can be found at here .
Yesterday my Dad drove Kris, his girlfriend Katie and my buddy Anderl from Germany up to the top of the course so we could pre-ride the final half of it. This paid off nicely as we finished 1-3 overall as I attacked early on in the first climb and lead for the race while Kris kept check on everyone else and nailed the last technical descent to come in very close behind. Heading into Stage 2 at Silver Star we have the lead for both the 3 day (Kris) and 6 day races. It will be a good battle throughout the week with BC Bike race winner Tristan Uhl, the Rocky Mountain boys and a number of other fast guns battling it out in the Okanagan heat!
