TransRockies 2012 -- Day 3 -- Final Stage of the TR3

We had another mass start this morning from where we ended the previous day at Fernie Alpine Resort.  Out of the gate, we were climbing, and it almost did not stop all day.  The first climb was a modest grade of 5-6% for about 30 minutes up a fire road to the top of the ski resort followed by a gnarly downhill before a very steep climb to the highest point for the day.  A long decent into the valley, creek crossings and then back up and around the final ridge and peak followed, where we…

TransRockies 2012 -- Pre-Race Day

Well I am here in Fernie, B.C. still questioning what I am doing.  Coming from that mountain biking Mecca of Toronto, am I prepared for a three-day mountain biking stage race that has 4,900 metres of elevation gain over 92 km that includes 79% trail riding, with 58% single track to boot?   After months of multiple hill repeats on Brimley, the Bayview Extension, Loblaws Hill, “Hospital” Hill behind Sunnybrook, complemented by umpteen laps of the Don, Albion Hills, and Hardwood Hills, I guess…
