Stoke for the Advendurist

  • Joyous Time for Bicycling

    August is turning out to be a joyous time for bicycling, adding a new festival to the jam packed month. The Steamboat Springs Bike Week, presented by Bike Town USA® will be taking place in Steamboat Spring, CO, of course.

  • Stage 6 of a Water-Logged Epic

    In a bittersweet goodbye riders shuttled from Blairmore for Kananaskis Country to compete in what should have been a 48k ride through singletrack heaven. But mother nature had other plans. Throughout the night the clouds rolled in and added some more water to the already water logged trails.

  • MWU: Cowboy Up, Meh on the Tour, and Kilian Strikes Again

    July...yes it was hot. For some quite lucrative... for others quite painful. This is the Monthly Wrap: Tecnu took the Rev 3 Cowboy Tough Adventure Race, the tour had a muted feel, Kilian breaks yet another record, and carbon and bone hit the pavement.  

  • Fernie Bids Adieu with Moose and Rain

    As a Moose and her injured calf occupied the Project 9 trail for the TransRockies Challenge, organizers scrambled to re-route riders. But a delayed start was not going to dull the conclusion for the three day competitors or stem the flow for the seven day crew. Riders were finishing up with Fernie, but Fernie was not yet finished with them.

  • Advendurism is a novel idea, however twisting adventure and endurance challenges into your already complicated life can be a giant of sorts if you already feel overwhelmed with your current responsibilities. Popular media doesn't help much either. Stunningly geared-up people climbing the highest mountains, training everyday to be in top physical shape, athletes featured all over the world in the most picturesque places... It's all well and fine, and incredibly inspiring, but the question of "how" is never really answered for that person, couple or family trying to pay the bills and achieve a life more adventurous.

  • Scared of that Rope Traverse? Try a 1 km Zipline.

    Getting over your fears of that rope section for your next adventure race has never been easier. Zip them away at speeds of up to 100 km/h and heights of 600 feet above the ground. Canada has a new ride in town and it's located in the old growth forests of Cougar Mountain, 10 minutes north of Whistler, British Columbia.

  • Communities Help Re-Route a Water-Logged Epic

    Saturday marks the beginning of the 12th edition of North America's original mountain bike stage race, the TransRockies Challenge. Although southern Alberta is still recovering from the flooding in June, the damages will not hold back this storied event as communities have graciously accepted reroute plans to make the epic event a possibility.

  • Killian and Emelie - Ice Trail king and queen

    The Ice-Trail Tarentaise, third race in the SWS Ultra Series, lived up to its name and delivered enough snow and ice to challenge even the most accomplished skyrunners in Val d'Isère, France, Sunday.  World champions and ranking leaders Kilian Jornet and Emelie Forsberg take the crown...and the course records.
