Powell River is home to some Jurassic Park-esque trails. The trees are large and spaced far apart with little undergrowth. Moss and ferns cover just about everything.
There isn’t a whole lot of elevation (1,094m / 3,600′) on this stage, so finishing times were fast. The top five men all finished within 10 seconds of each other taking 2 hours 16 minutes to complete the 52km (32mi) course. Tristan Uhl took first on the day, out sprinting Kona teammates Barry Wicks and Chris Sneddon.
On the pro women’s side, Katerina Nash dropped the hammer from the start and never looked back. She finished the stage in 2 hours 34 minutes, 5 minutes ahead of second place Vicki Barclay.
Here’s the video recap of day two along with some photos from the BC Bike Race media team.
