BC Sweeps the podium at Nationals!

For me, I can attain success by doing the little things right. This past Junior Road nationals was incredible. I can truly say that I went into all of my races and left everything I had out on the road. I didn't win, but I sure didn't loose.

Flying the Red Truck colours at the Delta Crit

The second Tour de Delta crit in Ladner was another perfect Superweek night. The squad was amped and ready to put in another good race after the chaotic crit the night before in Delta. Everybody was relaxed hanging out before the race at the tent, eating sloppy sandwiches (Brendan) and getting ready for the fast flat crit on the newly repaved crit course.

Chasing the finish at Nationals Road Race

Before we even got to the start line of the junior men’s road race there were a couple things I knew were for sure going to happen. A lot of guys would try to go for a breakaway, the race was going to be a bit sketchy, and I had to race smart since I was solo.

Thunderstorms keeping us on our toes at Road Nationals

This years’ Nationals road race was once again on a short, crit-like circuit in downtown Ottawa, partly within sight of the parliament buildings. For the elite men’s race we traded the sweltering heat and humidity of last year for much cooler temperatures and intermittent thunderstorms.

Taking it up a level at Nationals TT

For the second year in a row, Canadian Road Nationals took place in Ottawa/Gatineau. The time trial was in Gatineau and it was the same course as last year. As I rode this course as a junior last year, I was familiar with how challenging it was. The difference this year was that I was now competing in the U23/Elite category which meant that the distance of the time trial was 10 km

TRT women represent at Road Nationals

Canadian Road Nationals were off to a brisk start for Holly, Gabby, and myself. The Elite women raced an aggressive 120km in the classic heat and humidity of Ottawa. The course was combination of highway riding with a crit portion around the start finish.

A hot and challenging provincial Road Race

We waited in anticipation under the shelter of the trees for the road race to get underway. About 15 min after the first group set out - elite men - we would roll out over the gravel parking lot. The day started at 36 degrees, it was a hot one.

First Elite TT Provincials!

My first elite TT Provincials, my first 40km Time Trial, and my first race on my sweet new Trek Speed Concept! All in all, I am happy with how the day went. It was a very hot one out in the farmlands of Langley, and the TRT racers were getting ready for a slog of a TT.

Team Bonding at the Tour de Bloom

The past weekend the team was fortunate enough to be able to head down to Tour De Bloom in Wenatchee, Washington. In my personal opinion this is one of the best amateur races hosted in the Pacific North West. Equal payouts bring in a large and competitive women's field.

Trek men shine at the freezing, hilly, and grueling Race the Ridge

Race the Ridge kicked off this past Saturday with a double day of grueling 100km hilly road race followed by a hill climb including a 12% section for half a kilometer outside of Maple Ridge. The whole TRT squad showed up ready to race and prepared for a wet and cold day as all the forecasts (we checked them all) showed 100% chance of rain throughout the day.

Trek women re-define tough at Race the Ridge

The team came together this past weekend for our first multi-stage event of the season, Race the Ridge. The women’s squad had four riders: Anika, Anna, Holly, and myself.  It was a great opportunity for us to build on our success at Jeremy’s Roubaix a couple weekends prior, and finally test the legs with some vertical.
