Sea Otter 2k17 The biggest bike festival in North America and the unofficial kick off to the season – welcome to Sea Otter Classic at the Leguna Seca Raceway! The week for myself started off with some of the University of Guelph’s finest Heat & Mass Transfer material. After a beautiful week in Aptos I […]

After a few weeks of being back in Guelph, returning to the full swing of school, I’m finally motivated to write about Vic…bro. That Canadian National Team Camp at Bear Mountain was fantastic. First off, the Westin is a 5 star so the beds are unbelievably comfortable. Secondly, the food was really good. Thirdly, special […]

After a short week at school it was time to jump in the Norco truck and head out to Sherbrooke, QC for Cyclo-Cross Nationals. Thursday was dedicated to travel and Friday morning would be pre-ride. The course in Sherbrooke was very cyclo-cross. Lots of off camber, snakey and twisty turns coupled with intense mud and […]

Food for thought: Bottled water -> 144.5 times more expensive than using your tap. I’m sure by now that most of you have heard about some of the controversy surrounding Nestle in Ontario and their role in basically capitalizing on a basic human right. You’ve likely heard about the damage that privatizing a natural resource […]

Located in cottage country, Sir Sam’s Ski Resort played host to this year’s Ontario Mountain Bike Provincials. My family got our cabin (#9) at Silver Lake Cottages and nestled in for the weekend. After returning from Tour of Alberta, I took a few days off to chill and do some ‘year end’ bike stuff. Showing […]

What an experience. For one of the biggest races in North America, it was super cool to be a part of. The riders present, the talent, the setups and the racing were super neat. I knew this was going to be a fight from the beginning, and couldn’t wait to get started. Stage 1 took […]

  Since the Canada Cup final in Whistler, BC I have been working with my Coach Kevin Simms to prepare for the upcoming Tour of Alberta. During this time, I have revived some of my ‘roadie’ stamina (lasting more than 90 minutes). Before heading out to Alberta I decided to hit up Road Provincials on […]

As far as World Cup races go, they don’t get much more rad than MSA. For myself, it’s a pleasure to return there every year and ride the epic course. Some changes were made to the course this year, can’t go wrong with a few new drops and berms. Everything was set for a great […]

The year is 2016. The place is Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec. The time is now. After a mildly disappointing nationals last year, (even though I was 2nd) I was out for blood this year. Instead of riding an aggressive race, where I would try to control everything and get well off the front, I chose to let […]

Little recap by yours truly: Hardwood Ski & Bike is always an interesting one. I started racing with Team Hardwood back in the day, so some might say I’m a local. The course this year included every characteristic Hardwood has to offer from Coffee Run, to Bone-shaker, to the BMX track, and even included some […]

Horseshoe Resort was the host of Canada Cup #3. I won this race last year and as a hometown favourite was ready to come out and light it up. After some strong world cup results in Europe I was prepared to throw it all down on the sick course here in Horseshoe. There was a […]

Albstadt, Germany: Yet again we travel back to Albstadt for the second round of this year’s World Cup races. Three times I have now raced the track there and pretty much everything remains the same. A small change off the start of the course makes the climbing a little less steep but still excessive. Over […]

Sea Otter Classic, where vendors, food trucks, athletes, bike companies, and cycling enthusiasts come from all over the world to see what’s new in the world of cycling for 2016. This year’s Sea Otter did not disappoint. There are long days in the pits and baking in the heat, but I thoroughly enjoy it. Getting […]
