Stage 7 (August 18th):Sparwood to Fernie, 48km/655 metres climbing

The short and fast last stage of the TransRockies saw the Team United Cycles duo of Roddi Lega and Tim Heemskerk confirm their dominant overall victory with their sixth stage win in seven days. They gapped the second and third placed Team La Ruta/Pizza Hut and Team Rocky Mountain EA Sports in the last singletrack section and rolled across the line with a narrow 18 second victory on the day and a 26-minute win in the overall standings.

After a Day 6 which will go down as one of the most brutal days in TransRockies history, on day 7 the riders were treated to a quick 48km run into beautiful Fernie to the celebrations finish line celebrations with the friends and family who were waiting there for them. The weather held in and the 2007 TransRockies Challenge will go down as having the finest weather since the race began.
