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

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...

  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

“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!!

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...

Saturday (May 10th) what an interesting day!!! 10:30am one of the worst things happened. As I’m heading out to the race I LOCKED MYSELF OUT OF THE HOUSE. You may ask how did I do this? Well Note to self the front door automatically locks when it closes. To make matters worse, the team that I’m staying with right now Continue Reading...

Week 2 of Going Euro!

  My second week here actually started off pretty amazing. On my first ride of the weekend I headed out and around the city of Ghent and decided on the way back home that I would check out the city’s center. Am I ever glad I did because it’s probably the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen. That’s right people Continue Reading...
