Bike check: Sandra Walter’s BCBR-winning Liv Pique

A World Cup race rig tuned for technical Okanagan singletrack

Sandra Walter lined up for her first BC Bike Race in a decade with a clear intent to win. Over seven days in the Okanagan, the Liv Canada rider did just that. Walter won every one of the first five stages before, on Day 6, she dropped one stage to long-time friend and training partner (and two-time world champion) Catharine Pendrel. The two raced out the final day together, crossing the line together with high-fives and smiles all around.

By that point, the Coquitlam, B.C. racer had enough of an advantage that the overall title was solidly hers. Walter carried more than Word Cup fitness into this year’s BCBR. She also rolled into Kelowna aboard the same Liv Pique Advanced Pro that she raced around Europe and North America all summer. The stickers from those races were even still on the top tube.

Walter did make some changes to the Pique to go from World Cup to BC Bike Race, though. Take a look through the gallery below to see the details on Sandra Walter’s BCBR-winning Liv Pique Advanced Pro.
