Riding at Bromont getting ready for next Week’s trip to World Cup 3 in Netherlands. I have been busy riding up and down small hills and practicing corners. I am getting ready to do my best rain or shine. I will enjoy the experience of representing Canada.
Thank You to all of my team members. Everyone contributes in their own way which is wonderful. I could never be a World Class Athlete All by Myself. Thank You Thank You!
Shelley came 2 in the Time Trial and 1 in the Road Race. Her next World Cup is in the Netherlands in June.
It is that time of year again. With Spring comes my Annual Defi Sportif race. This year I will consider it a training race. That way I can sort out all the bugs before World Cup 1. I have had a very good winter training and am ready to race. I have been fortunately able to change the way I do things and have some great sponsors who have supported me.
New equipment and the best winter training – I will have a good race today and be ready to race in Italy.
