Fancy a week racing mountain bikes through the Canadian wilderness? If so, you better get yourself over to the TransRockies Challenge website pretty sharpish.
Entries for the 2008 edition, which runs 10-16 August, opened on November 1 and five days later there are just 50 spots left, each for a team of two riders.
Two hundred teams entered on the opening day. "It was a hectic morning," said event director Aaron McConnell.
The event's website has had a complete revamp to make it easier to use for both competitors and event staff. The site provides images, information and forums for riders, plus communications and update tools for event staff.
