While down in the USA a video about 5 tips to get started in cross that I did with Canadian Cycling Magazine and Trek Toronto came out, you can check it out here
Another big UCI weekend in Rochester for the Ellison Park Cx .
I was very lucky to get some host housing with some new friends and ride some local trails on cross bikes. The Norco boys (Kevin “2Dolla” Haviland , Evan “worm in my face” McSneeky, “Andre Watson“, Conor “we had a moment again” O’brien, and Andrew ‘i got moto-passed by peter’ Lesperance were down for the weekend of racing as well. With the norco boys and Cyclocross sensations Raph Gagne and Mike Garrigan there was a lot of Canadian fire-power and madd-skillz going down in Amurica this weekend.
I ended up 20th and 17th for Saturday and Sunday respectively, which I am happy with given my start tactics/abilities. Also I busted some nice airs Saturday and tremendous log hops (IMHO) . Barrier hopping Saturday was no problem, Sunday I opted to run as it seemed easier/as fast but kudos to those that did it in the race as it was a pretty technical trick, especially while doin’ work !
