TR7

The original epic. 7 days of racing for teams of two, and new for 2013, SOLO riders that set the standard for mountain bike stage racing in North America. Considered one of the world’s great mountain bike races alongside legendary events like the Transalp, Cape Epic and La Ruta, TransRockies draws an international field from over 20 nations every year.

Since the first TransRockies in 2002, the route has been largely transformed to eliminate road and unrideable sections. Every stage will put a smile on your face, and give you more spectacular single track than ever before. Tough? You bet it’s tough. It’s definitely challenging, but with our best-in-class participant support on and off the trail, we’ll give you everything you need to keep those pedals turning, and by the end of the week, you might just be one of many who are ready to turn right around and ride back to Fernie!

Includes: In addition to spectacular riding, unparalleled organization and a well marked course, your entry includes stocked checkpoints, medical support, daily slideshows, 3 nights tent camping post stages 4, 5 and 6 (No accommodations provided in Fernie or post stage 7), luggage transfers and a TRC Louis Garneau bike jersey (Retail $90), and final banquet dinner.  Transfers, accommodation information and more HERE.

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.
