The TransRockies Race Series announced today that it has canceled its British Columbia events after a new Covid mandate has limited the size of outdoor gatherings to 100 people.
The British Columbia events are the inaugural Gravel Royale in Panorama, Canal Flats and Fernie, the mountain bike stage race Singletrack 6 in Fernie, Kimberley and Rossland, and the Golden Ultra running stage race in Golden. All registered athletes will have their entries transferred to the 2022 events.

Press release below.
The TransRockies Race Series team has made the difficult decision to cancel the inaugural gravel stage race TransRockies Gravel Royale as well as mountain bike stage race Singletrack 6 and running stage race Golden Ultra for 2021. This decision was made after a new COVID-19 mandate in British Columbia went into effect, which limits the size of ‘outdoor gatherings’ to 100 people maximum.
The TransRockies organization did everything to try to make the events happen and assured athletes that the best decision was made around this sudden change. The Public Health orders won’t allow events and small communities are once again being impacted by COVID-19. TransRockies main priority is to protect the safety of athletes, staff, volunteers and local communities.
Athletes will soon be receiving information on the 2022 events, which all 2021 athletes will be deferred to with no penalty.
