Summer, in Brief.

The summer is for a few of my fav. activities. Training, which is a given of course. Swimming, because I love everything that goes with it like the sun, nice weather, relaxing etc. AND… Moto! Well, moto is more of a fall activity for me and if I get to ride it once or twice then I’m happy about that. A few pics! Happy Summer!

Up Close and Personal – Porsche Cayman

Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Pfaff Auto who is long standing supporter in both cycling and many other sports. As their auto brands and reach continue to grow across Canada, they are quickly becoming the largest automotive dealer group in all of Canada. I’m so thankful to continue working with them as they support me in all of my racing endeavors and especially Rio 2016.

In 2015 I will continue to operate under the Pfaff | Porsche umbrella. This year they put in the Cayman with PDK. The suspension is lowered 1 inch and the wheels are upgraded to 19inch with some sticky tires :)

Now I’m needing to get out to the track at Mosport for some hot laps :)

Off-Season Update

When you think of off-season you generally think of relaxing, lounging and vacationing.  The past few weeks have been very little of those things and I’ve actually made a pretty big effort to get caught up on everything that I wanted to do that I couldn’t do during the race season.  To be a full time Mountain Bike athlete means being extremely good at one thing and that’s riding your bike.  I absolutely love mountain biking and you couldn’t do this sport if you weren’t motivated for success & improvements although it does come with it’s sacrifices.  I once heard a quote: ” To excel in one specific sport or thing, often means blunting energy or  making sacrifices elsewhere in your life”.   That’s pretty much how us athletes live for 11 months of the year.  At this level you have to dedicate 100% of your time and lifestyle solely to your performance and your sport.  The “off-season” for me…. is the perfect time to get caught up on all the fun activities I miss out on throughout the year.  In a nutshell the last few weeks have been all about riding the moto, eating good food lol… sometimes indulging in good food, getting on the fastest auto track in North America with Pfaff Porsche, racing bikes (of course!) house stuff like painting and decorating, shopping and catching up with family and friends.

So, here is to the off-season as we get closer to 2015!

Thanks Apex Race Photography for the photos from the Epic 8 hour.

The conditions were perfect, you could really carve the corners and let the tires do their job.

Epic 8 Hour, Trek Toronto tent set up had us looked after for the day.

I don't get this guy... lack of training, still leads it out and pulls fastest laps for the day.

Photo Report – 2014 Season Recap

With the 2014 race season well on it’s way to being wrapped up, I can’t help myself from reflecting on all the good times had and the many successes along the way. This year was one of my best races season’s yet and not just on the racing front but also personally. Each year I get the opportunity to grow as an athlete, travel the world while racing my bike and I also I get to meet so many amazing people and fans along the way.  These are just a few of the reasons of why I love doing what I do so much.  Thank you everyone for the support and love!

Below are a few pictures with captions:

My European race campaign absolutely sucked but I quickly got over it and regained control for the later half of the season.
