Flying high at the Tour de Beauce

Wednesday the 19th of June marked stage 1 of the 2019 Tour de Beauce. Things kicked off with a hot one, also the longest stage of the week, 177km. We started in St. Georges riding 40km along some classic Quebec roads, undulating and with plenty of potholes. It was full gas for that first hour all the way out to the circuit.

Cascades: Racing into shape

Following a disappointing performance at provincials, wherein a misjudgment of my abilities (in addition to catastrophic cramping) resulted in near disaster for the team, I quickly re-evaluated my goals, packed my bags, and headed south, determined to force my body into some semblance of form.

That's just how bike racing goes sometimes

The Provincial time trail was a 40km course out in Fort Langley area, I’ve been on the podium several times at TT Provincials so I was looking to do well. It was an absolutely miserable day out there, so much rain made for a slippery course.

Jeremy's Roubaix

Jeremy's Roubaix is quite the contrast to the normal races that we attend for the year. It takes place on the on-and-off the gravel dyke paths in Maple Ridge BC. Our race was 100km, about 50km of that was on the gravel sections.

Crossfit adventures and, yes, solid racing at Wenatchee

It’s 5:45 am in Wenatchee, Washington. I’m sure that somewhere people are waking to the sight of dew glistening on grass in the warm early morning sun of late spring accompanied by the sounds of peaceful birdsong. We, however, are awoken quite abruptly by a chorus of flipping tires, grunts, and death metal.

Walla Walla: When it rains, it pours

The 2019 Tour of Walla Walla would be the first test for Trek Red Truck Racing after an epic week of training down in Thousand Oaks, California the week before. The drive in to town the day before racing would provide a preview of things to come over the weekend, as the weather shifted back and forth between bright sunshine and torrential rain every few minutes.

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.

Superweek!

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.

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.

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!
