The organizers of the Intermontane Challenge in Kamloops, British Columbia are adding a singlespeed category for both men and women in the July 26-31 event.

The singlespeed racers will run with the geared categories and run the same course. The prize break down will be released once organizers have seen the response to the new category.

In its second year, the 2010 edition of the Intermontane Challenge is on schedule with its proposed course awaiting approval. The race’s limited early registration comes to an end on Jan. 31.

The five-day “cloverleaf” stage race is centered in Kamloops, BC and will run July 26-31. Teams of two riders and solo racers will be competing, making two separate races within the race.

The race loop on the first four days will start and end in Kamloops. The fifth and final day of the race will consist of a time trial in the heart of Kamloops.

Chris Sheppard and Sue Butler won the men’s and women’s solo fields in the 2009 race, each taking home $10,000 (Canadian).
