UBC Grand Prix – The Suffer Fest

0 Submitted by on Fri, 11 July 2014, 18:09
I was not overly excited for this race to say the least. For those who don’t know, UBC Grand Prix is in the shape of a letter ‘P’ except the ‘square’ part in this case was significantly smaller then the ‘stick’ part. The big feature and truly the hardest part of the course was the 180 degree turn around on Continue Reading...

It’s been almost a month of not racing and just doing some secret training before Nationals. Well I must say I was lacking some race legs at Nationals, because it was the worst National’s race for me. A Lesson learned, mistakes will be made. This means my coach and I will heading back to the drawing board, to figure out were Continue Reading...

Tour de Delta stage 1

The race course has always been one of my favorite in the series even though hills typically don’t favor me, I enjoy the steady hard pace of this race. You drill for half of the lap, relax for the other, and the hill isn’t steep enough to give me problems  - just a steady 45s efforts 40 times. That being Continue Reading...

For 2014 the Canadian Road National Championships was back in lac Megantic, this year doing a very similar course to 2012, which was the first time I rode a national championship.  The route consisted of a 20km rolling ride out to a 15km circuit that had a steep, 2km climb on it which we would do 9 times before heading Continue Reading...

You Versus the Clock – Nationals ITT

0 Submitted by on Fri, 27 June 2014, 02:00
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing in style… (Or it’s worth doing well). The course for the Individual Time Trial National Championships would pose to be a difficult one. The rolling hills, wind and 40km brutal effort would crack or destroy the competitors. The stress level around the start was high as athletes were informed about the rule changes Continue Reading...

Stage 6, North Star Grand Prix

The final stage! Not only was it the final stage but it was probably one of the hardest especially after racing for almost a week. This crit was truly one of a kind. A figure 8 loop with no overlap to be exact. With the start at the base of a 400 metre climb that rounded out to an average Continue Reading...

North Star GP Stage 4 and 5

  I have little time to write this one before we head out for the last stage here, and I haven’t had enough coffee to follow Kevin’s last blog wit. (Is there ever enough coffee?) Guys are starting to feel exceptionally wrecked now, I fully enjoyed seeing their faces post-race 9 pm nap last night. Forget the time, I doubt Continue Reading...

Bro, do you even echelon? – A brief 140km cycling tutorial

0 Submitted by on Fri, 13 June 2014, 19:44
“Winds of up to 30 miles per hour” was one of the many sentences in the background noise fuzz that resonated the night before stage 3 at the North Star Bicycle Festival. Somehow the dullness of my muscles appears to correlate with similar mental circumstances, and that piece of information about the wind was lost in my hypoglycaemic fog. The Continue Reading...

Day 1: North Star Grand Prix Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, gather around as I tell you of the intense, exciting and excruciating racing of the first two stages of the North Star GP. The first stage was a simple, yet painful, time trial. A Prologue some may call it. The course was a simple 8km on a relatively Continue Reading...

Final Week!!

0 Submitted by on Sun, 08 June 2014, 19:54
My final week and a half brought me to the Ardennes for a three stage Top Competition race. Now I was told heading into the race that it was probably one of the hardest races on the Belgium circuit. There was 26 KOM climbs over the three days. But really that never mattered because I never saw the front or Continue Reading...
