Canadian Rockies 24 is excited to bring 24 Hour mountain bike racing back to Canmore, Alberta, at their world famous Nordic Centre.
Co-organizer and current 24 Hour World Champion Cory Wallace has this to say about the race: "We are excited to be bringing a World Class 24 Hour race back to Canmore. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned pro we believe a great time will be had by all, as it is tough to beat the trails and setting which we have in Canmore. My organizing partner, Leighton Poidevin and I are bringing years of racing experience from around the globe to build this event. Although the focus will be around having fun and building a great atmosphere to help grow the grassroots side of racing, we also plan to make it the go-to event for the more serious 24 hour riders who want to push themselves to the limit."
The race will be consist of both team and solo categories on a looped course of 15-16 kilometres in distance, containing many of the classic trails at the Canmore Nordic Centre. Riders can expect a festival-like atmosphere over the weekend of bike racing, camping and hanging out under the mighty Rockies.
The inaugural Canadian Rockies 24 will take place August 27-28, 2022.
