Fernie SAR was called to rescue three more Tour Divide riders from the Flathead today.

They were evacuated via helicopter.

We are hopeful that this is the last of these riders who have kept all the SAR groups very busy over the last few days.

Thanks to Ascent who have provided hours of expert piloting in very challenging conditions.
