Ironman Road Route May 23rd

Call it a scouting report - albeit a condensed version. Our mate Eric had never done anything over 100 kms - Jaegan & I made the experience as good as possible. Heads up on what to expect - nutrition - stops when he needed it. He LOVED it ! Cannot wait for Round 2 ( that's a good sign ).


Weather was sketchy - it just monsooned thru Summerland on the drive down ( it was quiet in the van ). All good - we only got sprinkled on a few times - and only a few sections of road were wet.

Salty Dog 6hr Enduro

Salmon Arm, BC. Sunday May 16th. Over 400 riders - 174 two-person teams, lots of solo riders. An 11 km route of climbing and sweet singletrack. Recipe for addiction - YES I'm riding this next year.

The video is compilation of the entire race - from pre-race to start to actual on the course riding courtesy of my GoPro helmet camera.


Enjoy !!

TT May 11-2010


So - my very first TT ~! Went very well - the competition was solid - and everybody was super chilled and relaxed at the start. I think I've found my niche.......

Did not get passed - and I passed at least 4 riders. There's one more I recall ( I think ) - but couldn't find it on video thumbnails - will look again. Finished with 23.29 minutes - whereas one of the Total Restoration team riders cracked off a sub 20 minute mark !!

Awesome night all. THX again to ChainLine Cycle and COBRA for hosting.

Cheers ( and enjoy ).
