Yellow Lake Surge

Challenge Penticton is inviting spectators take part in the the Yellow Lake Surge Zone.

Sponsored by Energy Lab, the Yellow Lake Surge Zone is a five-kilometre climb at the 145-kilometre mark on the picturesque and demanding 180-kilometre bike course.

Complimentary buses to Energy Lab’s Yellow Lake Surge Zone depart every hour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. from the parking lot in front of the Wine Country Information Centre. The last bus back will leave the Surge Zone at 4 p.m.

Drew Vincent, coordinator of corporate sponsorship for Challenge Penticton, Canada, said, “Having raced this course in the past I knew that the Yellow Lake section was critical to athlete experience.

“We wanted to see how we could carry this tradition whilst reaching new levels of excitement for athletes as well as spectators.”
