The Seven Summits is listed as an IMBA epic, and for good reason. Today the Trans BC Enduro climbed to the pinnacle of the trail, then banked hard left and descended into a seldom ridden but excellent drainage for 2000′. Three more loamy, fun stages then greeted the racers as they traversed deep into the Kootenay range.

The towns of Rossland and Red Mountain will play host to riders for the next day and a half, serving up unbelievable views out into the Valhalla mountain range and down the Columbia River.image3-11

Kona athletes Kris Sneddon and Barry Wicks continued their quest to survive each challenging stage in tact and progress their skills as they continue on the excellent journey that is the Trans BC Enduro. Their race within a race is growing heated with Wicks taking a precious 7 seconds out of Sneddon today.

Luckily the race accommodation tonight includes a hot tub so the guys can soak their weary arms before the pounding seven stages will dole out on them day four.
