The road came upon a fairly deep swamp & that's when I finally gave up on my goal of staying dry for the rest of my adventures. I got up past my knees in water, made it out to civilization & back to my parked van. A solid 20km in 2 hours. I wasn't going back there anytime soon!Read More
When I started thinking about buying a fat bike, I was already used to riding in cold, snowy, icy, less than ideal conditions. I actually love doing it. I figure I build up my HTFU points over the winter...And you can’t tell me I’m soft when I ride in -40, freezing rain or a 50cm snowfall.Read More
Almost instantaneously I became hooked. Not only was it fun to have raw data to look at but I could see measurable improvements without having to wonder if I was getting better and most importantly it showed me how much more work I still had to do.Read More
Video footage off the start line at the Eastern Ontario Cyclocross series.
Clarence-Rockland was some rock'em sock 'em bike racing. Gravel roads, rough tarmac, windy, and fast. Check out the wicked pics below thanks to Zara: https://www.flickr.com/photos/retrospark
We had a good Nine2FivePro turnout for a beauty day in the saddle. Jake, Hans, Warren, Doug, Greyburns, Gerald, Michael, Jeff...oh man I'm sure I'm going to forget somebody. But kudos to all who came out to rock Rockland.
Here's links to some of the Nine2FivePro highlights:
Another yearly pilgrimage to Battenkill. It was a sunny day, which was nice since the organizers had a new course for us to take on. Still taking on much of the same roads, but with a few changes. Unsurprisingly, the pictures don't seem to have much to do with bikes. Oh well....BBQ...yum.
The racing was hard like usual. Early break went in the Senior 2 race, and not quite confident to ride all day in a break Charlie and Andrew chilled out in the pack. Gerald rode the Master 40 race with a couple heroes breaking away, flatting, and then breaking away. Gmon rode in a group and made it to the finish still smiling.
Then it was time for gnom gnoms and to replenish our morale.
Darrell had a rough go at Calabogie this year, getting involved in a crash early on and attempting a brief chase. But his trip to the Calabogie Speedway wasn't all for naught. He took a bunch of pics while he was there.
It was a good day out for the team. Greg rocked a top-10 in the Elite race with a good sprint and grabbed 7th place. Graham Page rode around comfy in the Elite 3 race. Caroline had her best pack race thanks to all the hard work she put in throughout the winter. He ride there was a sign of even better things to come.
Charlie wimped out with his sore legs from racing Tour of the Battenkill the day before.
