The third stage is a real treat and all-around adventure, utilizing the famous Seven Summits Trail; an IMBA epic. A shuttle will be offered to the start area North of Rossland. This stage will utilize a time-trial format as the route starts directly into singletrack. At the beginning of the stage, you’ll embark on the biggest climb of the day, moving you directly into the alpine on remote singletrack to the upper slopes of Mount Lepsoe. A series of shorter, but still strenuous, climbs lead to fun and fast descents, culminating with a long descent to the south trailhead. But, luckily for you, the fun is not over – we’re including more descending on the Dewdney Trail descent all the way down to the highway This stage is sure to leave you with a smile!
