The folks behind the "Intermontane Challenge" were handing out glossy post-cards advertising their event at last year's TransRockies and I for one am a bit intrigued.
It's a 5-day stage-race in the Kamloops region of British Columbia and promises to be heavy on the singletrack. Each day begins and ends in the same place (the town of Kamloops), although racers will negotiate different trails each day. And while the race will have 2-person teams (ala TransRockies) they are also allowing solo entrants.
Read about it here.
Color me very interested.
