What started as a campaign to “bring the province together” has evolved into a multi-ORV extravaganza that unites Alberta every summer. The ATV Triple Crown Race Series pits Wild Rose Country’s best and boldest against each other over three competitive weekends.

Back in 2010 when the series began, it consisted of only one class of ATVs and two series—one in the north and the other in the south. Since that time, a central location was added to the mix along with more series and side-by-side racing. Supplementing the series with UTVs has made for truly memorable moments.

“The side-by-side class is definitely a must-see,” said Janelle St-Laurent, secretary, office manager and race-day manager for the ATV Triple Crown Race Series. “We’ve seen UTVs hit 100-plus foot jumps!”

If riding is more your style as opposed to watching, riders have more chances than ever to experience the thrill of chasing the checkered flag. There are now over 30 gate drops per day. The expanded schedule allows all ages, classes, beginners and pros to test their mettle on ATVs and UTVs.

“We have had amazing numbers in ladies, pro and mini classes,” St-Laurent said. “There is something for everyone and it’s such a friendly, supportive atmosphere. It’s competitive on the track and very friendly off the track.”
