Win an all-expenses-paid trip to the Schwalbe Trans BC Enduro
We have taken over as title sponsor of the Trans BC Enduro. We are so excited about this partnership that we are giving away an all-expenses-paid trip to the sold-out “6-Day Party on Bikes” to one lucky winner.
See contest details below.
Dating back to 1973, Schwalbe has solely focused on the bicycle tire market and have a passion for everything on two wheels. As a company, Schwalbe continually looks to support and grow the sport by partnering with people and events that share that same passion.
“The partnership with Trans BC Enduro is a perfect avenue to continue to help Schwalbe progress the sport of Mountain Biking and share our passion for bicycles. We absolutely love these ‘Trans-Style’ events for their comradery on and off the bike and the reminder that no matter where life has taken you, bikes are all about fun.” Stated Sean Cochran, Schwalbe North America Brand Promotions Manager.
Megan Rose, Trans BC Enduro Race Director, - “We are thrilled to see Schwalbe come on board as Title Sponsor for 2019 and are even more excited to have them integrate into the event offering some neutral support during the race days to all the racers. We are working on some pretty neat ideas, that I think all of the racers are going to appreciate!”
About Trans BC Enduro:
Schwalbe Trans BC 6 Day Enduro is heading into its 4th year for 2019 where this sell-out event heads back to the East Kootenays. Trans BC rotates between communities in the interior and the organizers are super excited to be bringing the event back to the East Kootenays for 2019. They loved the communities that this region touched in 2017, so race director Megan Rose and Trans BC’s ‘jack of all trades’ Nate Corrigan, headed back to the area last September to source out some new trails and new adventures and are stoked to show this year’s racers what they have found!
The sold out “6-Day Party on Bikes” is a fully catered experience from the moment you arrive at the Calgary airport. Shuttles will pick you up at the airport and transport you deep into the East Kootenays to ride hand selected trails through the small mountain communities of interior BC. With accommodations, 3 meals a day, a fully stocked on-course feed station and all the beer you can drink provided each day, your only worry will be a casual paced 4-6 hrs a day on the bike and firing yourself down timed descents on some of the best trails BC has to offer. This isn’t for the faint hearted though, you need to be fit and you need to be a solid, skilled rider. BC's black trails are not like other countries black trails! Schwalbe Trans BC's biggest goal is to provide trail variety and a vast riding experience throughout the week. Some crazy steeps, some raw trail, loose and dry, roots and rock with some flow mixed in (but not much!). Something for everyone. Everyone at some point will love a trail and hate a trail. But that’s just a part of the adventure!
Although it’s a race, the atmosphere is not really about that, it’s just about exploring new places and new trails on bikes, pushing your limits to heights you haven’t pushed it before, beating your buddy’s time down each descent and just having one of the best weeks of your life on a bike.

The fan favorite will win a VIP trip to the Schwalbe Trans BC Enduro!
