Stage 6 of Singletrack 6 - Golden, BC. After a night of well-deserved rest, riders embarked on the final stage into Golden’s Moonrakers and CBT trail systems. Fast and flowy best describe the final course. Racers were greeted with immaculate singletrack through lush forests on trails like CBT Mainline, Canyon Creek and Gold Rush.

Compared to 2014, much of the stage had been overhauled including new sections on Hemiptera, Odanata, and a higher entry to the stunning Canyon Creek Trail.

Golden has over 150km of trail on offer in this system and race organizers hand-picked the best to ensure this was a day that riders would never forget. From chatter around the finish line, they hit the nail on the head. Belt buckles were in order for all finishers, as well as a cold beverage. Cheers from the 2016 Singletrack 6 - see you next year!
