We invented the 3-day stage race format, and now we’ve perfected it with three amazing days in the mountain biking mecca of Fernie, BC. Catering to new stage racers and gnarled veterans alike, TR3 focuses on great singletrack trails and lots of variety. Distances are moderate at an average of about 30 km per day, but with the big climbs and descents that are characteristic of Fernie’s best trails. All this comes with the support of Fernie’s great eateries and lodging, ready to offer you plenty of comfort and convenience at the end of a great day of riding.

Includes: Optional $50 donation to the Fernie Trails Alliance, Louis Garneau jersey, finisher t-shirt, fully stocked check points, medical and course support, post stage catering, nightly awards and slideshow.  Please note that accommodations are not included.  Transfers, accommodation information and more HERE.

Stage 1 TR3 – Fernie to Fernie

A traditional downtown start and finish without the traditional time trial.  This year we will kick things off with a mass start and send you off to ride a 33km route with 1600 metres of elevation gain.  Some of the trails include Upper Uprooted, Hyperventilation, Hyperextension, Roots Extention, Eric’s Trail, Splitting Bears, Ecoterrorist and Lower Southern Comfort.

Stage 2 TR3 – Fernie to Fernie

Day two will begin with another downtown start and tackle the Porky Blue Loop.  Today you will cover 44.5km and 1700 metres of elevation gain on the Porky Blue and the Coal Discovery Trails.

Stage 3 TR3 – Fernie Alpine Resort to Fernie Alpine Resort

Day three will see us move up to Fernie Alpine Resort for our start and finish.  The route will travel 30.5km with 1600 metres of elevation gain.  Trails include: Cedar Trail, Verboten, Lizard Lake Trail, Project Nine, Island Lake Road, Motorhead, Hedonism, Gorby Road, Boom, Megasaurus and Rumplestumpskin.

All of our routing has been recorded by GPS and thoroughly checked before the race, but mother nature sometimes has little surprises that mean last minute course changes. Don’t be surprised if there are small changes to the routing or stats before race day. Please note that all information is subject to change. Elevation gain/loss data collected by GPS can be highly inaccurate and varied depending on how it is measured and the equipment used. Our elevation data should approximate the measurements obtained by a portable GPS unit. TransRockies Events does not endorse riding all routes outside of the event. Some trails may not normally be open for riding or may be unrideable at certain times of year. Please obey all signs and respect current trail conditions.
