For the second straight year, the TransRockies Challenge has reached full capacity, this time over six months before the event which is set to take place August 6-12. When the TransRockies registration manager checked the overnight entries on the morning of Friday January 13 th , the magic number of 175 2-person teams had been reached and a Sell Out was declared at 7am Mountain Standard Time.
“We reached capacity a month before the (actual race date) in 2005, and we'd by lying if we said that we didn't think that the 2006 edition of TransRockies Challenge would sell out even sooner,” said Race Director Aaron McConnell, “. . . but six months sooner was beyond anyone's most optimistic projections.”
Participants in the 2006 edition of the TransRockies will spend seven days racing through the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains taking on an epic course which includes massive climbs, endless singletrack and river crossings, along with the wildly unpredictable Rocky Mountain weather.
“Pretty much since the moment we tore down the finish line in 2005, we've been working on the 2006 race, and the 350 registered riders can look forward to the best edition of the TransRockies yet. News like this energizes everyone within the organization to keep improving every aspect of the event.”
A waiting list will be in place and teams can email firstname.lastname@example.org for the opportunity to be offered entry on a first-come first-served basis should spots become available. For more information on the TransRockies Challenge, visit www.transrockies.com .
