Stage Five: Sechelt to Langdale

Early in the BC Bike Race’s fifth stage on Thursday, Chris  Sheppard was point man in the lead group of Team of 2 teammates Kris Sneddon and Barry Wicks, as well as Sheppard’s challenger in the Epic Men’s Solo category, Jason Sager.

By midpoint, Sager had ricocheted out front and held on for the Epic Solo Men’s stage medal in 2:35:49. Sheppard was in second place at 2:38:15. Out of the five stages in the race, Sheppard has tallied three wins and Sager two. Sheppard leads Sager in the solo category by just less than eight minutes.

In the Men’s Team of 2 race, Team Kona, comprised of Sneddon and Wicks, maintained their lead until close to the end of the course when DCM 1’s Max Knox and Brendan edged out a one-second victory in 2:38:14. South African Team DCM was pumped at the finish.

The Kona team still dominates the GC by roughly 26 minutes over DCM.

For the first time this week, world-famous mountain unicyclist Kris Holm took to the podium in the Challenge Solo Men category, with a 4:30:14 finish to secure 3rd place.
