One of Canada’s premier mountain bike races is coming to Fernie next month.

The Furious 3, a multi stage three-day event is for anyone interested in an epic mountain bike adventure.

Matt Mosteller, from Fernie Alpine Resort, said the race caters to all different types of riders.

“Whether you need a warm up or training race for one of those seven day events, a shorter race to get a taste of multi day competition or you just don’t have the time or the money to invest in doing one of the larger multi day races, then this is the perfect option for you,” he said.

“Fernie is well known as one of Canada’s top cross country mountain biking destinations and for downhill mountain biking at Fernie Alpine Resort, combined in one location, Fernie offers it all for mountain bikers.

“The Furious 3 is one of the best multi stage mountain bike events in Canada, and there is no better place to host a mountain biking event of this caliber than Fernie.”

Furious 3 is set to take place from July 1 to 3. There are categories for people of all ages and skill levels to participate in, including solo, two person teams or relay teams. Visit the official website www.furious3.com for more information or to register.
