80KM and 32KM GRAVEl BIKE RACE IN THE MAJESTIC CANADIAN ROCKIES
Welcome to the Canmore Crux
The Canmore Crux Gravel Bike Race will take place in the Canadian Rockies this coming September! What better way to finish off your season that with a fun and unique race at one of Canada’s crown jewels! We are excited to work with the Canmore Nordic Center to bring a new event to the community
Our mission is to run a race that all endurance athletes can enjoy! While the course has some challenging ups and downs- it is not overly technical and can be attempted by anyone with reasonable bike handling skills. No gravel bike? Want a more comfortable ride? Mountain bikes are also welcome!
LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE FOR 2023!
We are happy to welcome gravel cyclist and mountain bikers to join in on the fun this September! There are simply not enough cycling events to enjoy in our province this year and we are happy to open our Saturday event up to the "ride or die" cyclists. You do not need to be a licensed cyclist to compete/ participate. Our Event is recognized by the ABA as a stand alone event.
MASS START Saturday's cycling race will feature a mass start with all participates. Podium finishers will get some great prizing in addition to a champion's hoodie!
EVENT GUIDE Cyclists must also read through the event guide and also review the Youtube pre-race video before coming to compete. This means that all the same rules apply. Please pay extra close attention to the rules regarding littering, bear spray, and parking!
NEW FOR 2023. Athletes are invited to race the "Crux Lite!" This new event will be a two lap version of our popular 5 lap race.
Welcome to our playground
The Town of Canmore is one of the most beautiful places in all of Canada to explore, train, race, and play! Canmore is known for craggy summits like the Three Sisters and Ha Ling Peak. In nearby Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park, the Grassi Lakes Trail weaves past a waterfall to 2 turquoise blue lakes. An hour west of Calgary, 22 kilometres (12 miles) east of Banff, and nestled next to the larger wildlands of Kananaskis Country, Canmore is energized and inspired by our incredible location. Our beauty is enviable, geography, mind-boggling. We take advantage of the environment that surrounds us but we’re committed to sustaining it.
