The Legendary TransRockies Challenge Goes Gravel.
Nearly 20 years ago we brought mountain bike stage racing to North America with the legendary 7-day TransRockies Challenge. Back then, our goal was to take riders on a grand adventure through spectacular landscapes. We designed a route using the most rugged, remote and beautiful terrain on the continent—the Canadian Rockies. Today, our renowned race organizers are turning their attention back to those same Rocky Mountains for another pioneering stage race we call the TransRockies Gravel Royale. And it has all the ingredients needed to become a legend in its own right.
In total, the full 4-day course (we like to call it the Royal Flush) extends 407km and climbs a total of 7500m. A whopping 84% is gravel road. The rest is made up of 10% pavement, 5% doubletrack and 1% singletrack.
We pride ourselves on the rugged and remote nature of our stages, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be left to fend for yourself. We ensure an expertly marked course, 2 checkpoints per stage, as well as ambassadors and course crews, ready to lend racers a helping hand.
Each day will have you crossing the finish line with a dusty grin from ear to ear, and memories that will last a lifetime.
