The popular TransRockies Challenge announced registration will open to 300 teams on November 1 at 10:00 am MDT. The race will be held in its traditional early August time slot, from Panorama Mountain Village on Sunday, August 10 to Fernie on August 16. In-between, riders will travel through the rugged British Columbia Kootenay Rockies on the North to South route which was debuted in 2006. The final routing will not be announced until race time, but the course team is working on different routing options to improve the course and give multi-time participants something new to ride.

In 2006, the race attracted 600 racers from 24 countries to British Columbia and was won by Tim Heemskerk & Roddi Lega (United Cycle Team), Hillary Harrison & Susan Haywood (Trek VW - Giant) and Normon Thibault & Wendy Simms (Frontrunners-KONA) in the men's, women's and mixed divisions.
