Mountain Biking

If you’ve been out biking, running, or hiking in the Ridgemont Trail Network recently, you have probably noticed new flagging in place and perhaps Vast Resources Solutions Ltd. employees in reflective vests placing said flagging.

Contracted by Ridgemont Holdings Ltd., Vast Resources Solutions is implementing a harvesting plan for their property (see map) to create a fire-smart post-harvest stand structure.

Taking place on August 11th and 12th the weekend will be an introduction to cyclocross racing covering bike setup, skills and technique required to race cyclocross. Cross is a super fun and exciting discipline, testing all aspects of bike racing, cross racers are the most rounded of all bike riders. This is the perfect way to finish your season with racing mostly taking place from September to November. Alberta Bicycle Association run a fun and competitive race series, with races also happening below the border as well.

Last week, the TransRockies Race Series announced its plans to bring back the seven-day TransRockies Classic stage mountain bike race, starting in Panorama Mountain Resort and ending in Fernie, BC. Originally called the TransRockies Challenge, it was first staged in 2002 and ran continuously through 2013 with Fernie holding either the start or finish each year. The TransRockies Classic, which will be hosted in alternating years to the Singletrack 6, features epic point-to-point crossing of the Rockies on trails, remote tracks, and forest roads, with daily distances up to 100km.
