The maps, stages, dates and details below are for the 2012 event. We are still making slight changes to the routing to improve your experience. Please use this info as a guide only. We will post updated information as we approach the event.
TransFondo Fernie – On July 28th, TransFondo Fernie will feature the course offered on stage 2 of the TransRockies Challenge. The tour will begin with a traditional downtown Fernie mass start before heading for the Slopes of Mt. Fernie. Featuring some of the best Fernie Single track, you’ll be treated to some of the most exciting descents anywhere, including Slunt, Brokeback, and Hedonism. With a projected distance of 30km of primarily single track, this stage will challenge and thrill riders of all ability levels and finish with a bang on the plaza of Fernie Alpine Resort.
TransFondo Kananaskis – On July 31st riders will be welcomed to beautiful Kananaskis, Alberta and TransFondo Kananaskis while riding stage 5 of the TransRockies Challenge. Since we first introduced “big loop” stages at Nipika in 2008, we’ve had rave reviews for stages that feature excellent riding based out of an attractive base camp. This tour features an incredible loop of mountain bike trails and combines classic area rides like Prairie Creek, Sulphur Springs and Moose Packers Trail with newly developed purpose-built mountain biking trails like Pneuma and Ridgemont to put together the ultimate combination of trails in the Moose Mountain area.
GPS data files for TransRockies 2012 (2013 TBC):
We’ve ridden all of our proposed 2012 routing, but we’re still in the permitting process and fine-tuning the details. Don’t be surprised it there are small changes to the numbers 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.
