Fernie is a founding community of North America’s mountain biking stage racing scene, for good reason—the riding is epic! The creators of the TransRockies staged events in Fernie for 12 years, and a few other events have come and gone. This June the locals who made it happen present the ultimate all mountain 3 day stage race, the Fernie 3.
The Fernie 3 will cater to new and old riders, and gnarled veterans alike, with focus on fun and the best singletrack stages ever, followed by classic Fernie hospitality!
