and I pick up this little Sea Otter ( 2014 photos and results )

Crazy weekend at Sea Otter . 3 solid races. 2 big days on 3 awesome Trek Bikes. A lot of hard work but so much phone and hopefully a little boost to fitness going into the Canada Season openers . I think I was 8th Enduro, 33 XC and 11th Cyclocross. 

I have seen no photos of me yet but below are some of the results, stories and photos . As always please add your favorites links to comments. 


Also short track  which I passed on this year.

Oh I can go All day ( Sea Otter Enduro , XC , CX )

The hardest part seems to be race prepping 3 bikes ! 

I am Really excited (nervous!) for today's enduro . I got in some good laps yesterday on the 1st stage which is the DOWNHILL course with Carl Decker yesterday. Went full spandex which always sets the expectations of others low . 

          3 Bikes, 3 Races, 30 hours 
Superlfly, Crocket, Fuel Ex 29

between preriding xc / enduro and maintenance I logged an 8 hour day !

So fun couple weeks up in the north. So cold I almost had to fly in some girls from Miami to heat up the city. not quite though. 

 timed with my post on reading a Nirvana biography , it was 20 years since Kurt Cobain died.
To correspond with Kurt's 20 year Q107  added the 80's and 90's to their classic rock lineup 
My 30 year old self dealt with it 
  One of my exciting adventures in coaching this year is taking on Hardwood Devo Gold
A group of 14-17 year old Mtb athletes.
The Hardwood devo program recieved Trillium Funding from the Ontario Government
I was glad to be there with the athletes and staff for the ceremony !
 (Still room for 1-2 more athletes if you know an awesome 14-17 year old ! )
 My friends at Scotch Hollow let me help with Maple Syrup
Officially driving tractors and not overly getting in the way

 In no way did this portable scotch setup get engineered for Maple syrup boiling sessions
