“With White Rock, unfortunately by that time the riders – a lot of them are feeling pretty burnt out, so sometimes they will skip White Rock but in the other case, other riders look at that as an opportunity, which means it helps the field in White Rock,” he says.

The White Rock race is 130 km of steep, seaside hills over two days. It is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
