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.

 Is a "shedit" just a short edit? All these new fangled terms have me more confused than Trump trying to pronounce a word with more than two syllables.
  • + 21
 No shit, I don't have an insta account and not sure I want to sign up just to enter this contest. WTF people, not everyone wants to be a social media whore!

 No problem @davec113 if don’t think signing up for an Instagram account to win a $2500 entry is worth it then you don’t have to. You also don’t have to be a social media whore to have an account. Just saying. It just super cool the Schwalbe have decided to give the entry away rather then us it for one of their pro riders which they could have! Giving everyone a chance at the entry! Props to schwalbe

 @TransBCEnduro: chances of winning are next to nil and not worth me dumping info to some stupid intagram bullshit Im not even on insta and I get notifications on my phone I never asked for from them. Could have used facebook instead at least most of us have an account on there. But the whole point of your scheme is to get more people on Instagram probably. Wonder how much they are paying you to advertise for them.

 @TransBCEnduro: There are ligit reasons some people might not want to use social media platforms like FB and Insta, imo you're being willfully ignorant not to understand that. You MUST have some friends that don't do social media, ask them why if you really don't get it.

 @mhoshal: Wow, I don't like it because I don't have an easy way of getting a half-decent pic or vid and uploading it, but I still appreciate @TransBCEnduro and @schwalbe for it, it would be a dream come true and even a set of tires would be amazing for a poor guy like myself. lol A little excessive on the hate and aggression methinks. Edit: just noticed who I'm talking with, makes sense now. Facepalm thanks anyway for putting this together guys

 @TransBCEnduro: Well said. So many people are bitching about not having an Instagram account and blaming it on you guys? You guys and schwalbe didn't have to do this. Its ridiculous how privileged some people are!

 @TransBCEnduro: I'd also say my disappointment reflected in my original post is an indication of the excitement I first felt when I thought I had a chance to win an entry.

 Could not have said it better. If I was sponsered I would not run these tires!

 Enduro racing a Magic Marry and Hans Dampf in Super Gravity casings and they have been bomb proof. Awesome tires.

 Could only be the tires, though, right? I have been super impressed by my magic Mary / bobby nic combo. But I guess so don’t shred tires here on rocky Vancouver island.

 I have raced the Trans NZ & Trans BC and I can safely say if you ride bikes and like getting rowdy Trans BC is an absolute must. Megan, Nate and all the volunteers absolutely kill it! Amazing trails every day for a week and an experience you'll never forget. DEFINITELY take this opportunity to get "sponsored in"!!

 This is so rad... 3 tags on a image and you get a once in a life time trip paid good on you guys! Wish we had less negativity online.

 The fact that people are on here fucking whining about the social marketing methods companies are using to offer free shit to the public is a bit ridiculous
