The Fernie Lucky 7’s replaces the Fernie 3 for 2017. The Fernie 3 was a three-day XC endurance stage race that was held for three years and raised money for trails and charity, and supported youth cycling. In 2016 $10,000 was raised and in the past three years raised $27,000 overall. Thank you for your participation and support. For those of you who love the Fernie 3, there is a possibility it will return in future years.
The organizers needed a break from the Fernie 3—events need to be sustainable. Overlap with other Fernie events created a shortage of volunteers and resources, and this led us to change the format to a one day event and change the date.
