gAugust 5, 2006 — The 2006 TransRockies Challenge begins Sunday, Aug. 6 until Saturday, Aug. 12 and Team Pedal/Kona is there once again to ride the Rockies and bring you daily updates at pedalmag.com.
Pedal has been there since the first TR event in 2002 and continues the tradition as Paul Newitt and Nels Guloien team up once again for this epic ride over a new route on fabulous and grueling trails through the Kootenay Rockies.
The new route begins in Fernie, B.C. and will challenge riders with over 12,000 meters of climbing, and over 560 kms of off-road terrain.
Follow Team Pedal/Kona as they join 450 racers from over 20 countries on this 7-day epic trek which will take them over the Continental Divide twice before they reach the resort town of Panorama, British Columbia, and the TR 2006 finish line.
Click the TR 2006 Daily Updates icon on the right side of our home page to check out all the action – you can send a message to Team Pedal/Kona or post a message on our TransRockies Forum.
Good luck to all participants.
We revised “Live Updates” to “Daily Updates” as Team Pedal/Kona is providing reports after each stage (not during each stage) and apologize to readers for the misunderstanding.- ed
