BC Criterium Championships - What a way to end the season

Trek Red Truck Racing capped off a fairytale season over the weekend, sweeping both the U23 and Elite categories at the 2018 BC Criterium Championships. Racing was hard fought, the heat was searing and the inaugural “Awesome Grand Prix” delivered a course that wasn’t for the faint of heart - and yet, TRT excelled.

Trek Red Truck Racing Calls 2018 BC Superweek a Success

The high of racing on British Columbia’s biggest stage seems to last well after passing under the final finishing banner. Rest and recuperation become crucial in the days following the province’s premier cycling event—for some, a day or two off the bike or (at the very most) a coffee ride is a highly anticipated part of the rest week.

It's been an exhilarating couple days for members of Trek Red Truck Racing. BC Superweek is in full swing, and the shock of daily racing is beginning to manifest itself in the form of sore legs and tired bodies.

With BC Superweek in high gear and the 25th anniversary of Trek Red Truck Racing coming up next year, the release of this awesome video retrospective of our team produced by Sugoi is very timely. An incubator for the most talented local cyclists for nearly 25 years, including future Olympians and stars of the pro peloton, it is an honour to have earned the right to be called the West Coast’s “Home Team”.

Chain mishap at Volunteer Park

A little bit of a light squad for this race, due to other commitments the only riders that could attend were Chris and myself. With a solid week of training in the legs Chris and I were stoked to get a solid race in. The course was up and down with no real corners just curves around Volunteer park in Seattle.

A great day for TRT at Provincials

The Elite Provincial TT was a definite focus for me. I spend a lot of time on the TT bike and I love going fast and the TT dynamic itself is something I really enjoy about bike racing. The fact that you get to decide how your race will go, it’s you against the clock and nothing else.

This past weekend was the BC Elite Provincial Road Championships, taking place in Aldergrove, BC, and put on by Escape Velocity (the people behind much of BC’s great race scene). Included was a 36km time trial on the Saturday, and — for the women — it was a 100km road race on the Sunday.

Enumclaw Stage Race – View from an Aging Ass Clown

The opening stage of Enumclaw involved an individual 10 km time trial. It was effectively an out-and-back with a minor descend on the way out, and a slight uphill coming home. I speak for the entire men’s team when I say, despite being just a 13-14-minute effort, it hurt!
