TransRockies 2012 Registration

TransRockies 2012 Registration

North America’s original epic mountain bike stage race returns in 2012 with three incredible registration options to appeal to mountain bikers with a range of endurance and ambitions.

TR3 – 3 Days Solo – Stages 1-3 – July 28-30, 2012
We invented the 3-day stage race format, and now we’ve perfected it with three perfect 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 45 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.

TR4 – 4 Days Solo – Stages 4-7 – July 31 – August 3, 2012
A step up in distance and vertical, the TR4 retains the wilderness camp aspect that is a big part of TransRockies. The TR4 route has been designed to showcase the best biking trails in Kananaskis Country, a huge playground that lies in the Canadian Rockies between Calgary and Banff, Alberta. The route features trails that have been favourite local rides for decades, plus plenty of trails that have been constructed in recent years by mountain bikers, for mountain bikers. Fully supported tent camps at Little Elbow Campground and Rafter Six Ranch bring the TransRockies community together with communal meals and opportunities to relax in some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth.

TR7 – 7 Days in Teams of Two – Stages 1-7 – July 28 – August 3, 2012
The original epic. 7 days of racing for teams of two that set the standard for mountain bike stage racing in North America. Considered one of the world’s great stage 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 its tough. With 360km and over 12,000 m of climbing, its 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!
