This week I was lucky enough to be apart of a National Team camp at Bear Mountain, Victoria. It is always a great honour and super motivating to be a part of these as our nations top MTBers are rounded up to learn, train, and race together!  As this camp […]

Riding the Bear

First World Cup of the year yesterday and might I say it was a suffer fest(!) – As the course was riddled with steep climbs, technical descents that were steep as well, and almost no place for recovery in the lap.   Heading into the first World Cup of the […]

World Cup #1 – Stellenbosch

Starting this season (and World Cup season) off even earlier than before is the Epic World Cup in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Here it is hot, dusty, and a whole new experience! Luckily for Peter and I, we arrived last Wednesday to get ready and used to the change in climate. […]

An Epic World Cup…

So I know that my blog posts have been slacking lately, but I thought since the season is just starting up (I know… early!), I would fill in the gaps from the last few months. Coming home from World Championships in Australia, I went right into my first year at […]

Start of 2018

This year, World Championships were held in Cairns, Australia. After being selected for team Canada to represent (which is always a massive honour!) I sealed the deal with a flight booking of over 36 hours… Luckily 6 of that was a layover in Sydney and Peter and I went downtown […]

World Championships!

Right after the Hardwood Canada Cup, we (as in Team Canada, and specifically Peter, since we travel together) headed over the pond to land in Barcelona, Spain to station where the UCI World Cup #3 was taking place in Vallnord, Andorra. Cycling Canada was putting on an Altitude Preperation camp […]

My Europe Adventure

This all started early in the year when race planning was in effect. Deciding to skip the World Cups and stay back for Canada Cups can be quite controversial… Where going to Europe can gain you quality experience, but staying back can allow you to gain valuable UCI Points, something […]

Trip to Quebec

Last Saturday marked another day to get kit’d up and race some bikes! This time down in sunny California in the Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park.   Last year for those who were there and remember, was a total surprise mud fest! This year, the opposite and typical Cali racing; […]

Bonelli US Cup! Eating Dust.. 

Last weekend I was up in Victoria, BC for the start of the Canada Cup Series at Bear Mountain. Coming straight from a training camp with the Ontario Cycling Association, it was a perfect transition to get onto the mountain bike for the 2 weeks leading up to the race! […]

Bear Mountain Recap

   Starting off the 2017 year in the right tone is always needed to have a good season. Not being motivated during your “build” blocks can really have an affect later on as this time on the bike is apparent to how much one can do later in the season. Luckily, […]
