MTB National Team Camp - Carlsbad, CA

After four days of bike riding on the southern California coast I can say my legs are tired. Yesterdays 5 hour ride with a monster climb up to, through and past the snowline made for the biggest/hardest/longest training ride I've done in a while. That is one side of the camp is bike riding, which is expected, but the most enjoyable part is the team bonding and Supercross event we attended the other night. Bigger, better and just more awesome of an update will be coming soon..hopefully! Were keeping busy and gettin' fit. Here's a quick look through the lens of the first four days:

Also, GPS of the rides via Stava can be found HERE.

 You may recognize this house from Top Gun, ladies Maverick may be the secret word to understanding this photo..
 Only in 'merica, $11 for crap beer, really?
Rode up Mt Palomar.
 I would like to say I REALLY enjoyed watching this.
 Team Canada mechanics Scott Kelly and Adam Trotter are miracle workers, they literally make dreams come true.
I cracked after riding the other day, no choice but to consume as many calories as possible in the shortest time.

New Sponsors

I would like to thank Axel Merckx GranFondo, Pro Source Irrigation and for the support they will be providing me with for the 2013 season. I absolutely love bike racing and when a company comes on board to help someone achieve their dream it is beyond amazing, I can't quite thank them enough. Axel's GranFondo is a great event based in Penticton, BC that I will be attending this year for my second time, as well as helping out with the kids Piccolo Fondo. Pro Source Irrigation is the a leading supplier in irrigation needs within the Okanagan Valley. Definitely stop in at their Kelowna or West Kelowna locations for amazing customer service! is a Penticton based company that is very active in the community, you may have heard of them as they are hosting the Peach Classic triathlon. 

Watch out for an article coming out in the next week with the on the behind the scenes with what is takes to race in my position. This summer I am going to be putting on some kids learn to ride clinics as well as a women's learn to ride clinic through the Peachland Community Center. So keep an eye out if yourself and anyone you might know would be interested. I will post details when more are available. 

Soon to the interwebs near you, will be live and running. I will then be transfering everything from this blog to my new website. I am sorry if it is an inconvenience on your behalf. But I promise will be cool!

T-minus 1.5 days until I down in Carlsbad, CA with Cycling Canada for the annual winter training camp. Really excited to get out and ride this new bike I just received from Norco:

Norco packages my bikes in a fine fashion.

Now comes for the classic picture update from my past couple weeks of training in the Okanagan. Lot's of bike riding has taken place as the weather has been relatively not winter like.3,2 go!

 Best new road trip idea??
 Found my snowshoe running legs and won a local 5 km race.
 Little dicey out there on the bike, but after finding a snowplow to motorpace I was golden.
 New winter keep feet dry tip: 2 pairs of socks, shoes, grocery bag, cotton bootie, then winter bootie.
 Nuff said.
Tree Brewing's Spy porter is now my winter drink of choice.
Volunteered at the Wendy's Dreamlift last week, what a fun day helping those in need for a trip to Disneyland!
My new teammates at Norco make a mean birthday card. Thanks Lespy and other Evan
