The Fernie Lucky 7’s replaced the Fernie 3. 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. 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.
