GET WARM OR DIE TRYING

DOESN'T KNOW WHAT TEAM HE'S ON

TUNNEL OF TEAM LOVE

BLOKES

Russ Hays/Accent Inns December 2013 training camp. I’m pretty proud to say I’ll be riding with these guys for 2014, they are giving me the opportunity to be teammates with some real hardmen of BC’s cycle racing scene as well as alongside National TT Champion Curtis Dearden. The extra support, new bike, new gear and help with travelling is going to take a lot of stress off my season. I still have a lot of work to do, on the bike training as well as off the bike, raising and saving cash to take the time off I’ll need to compete in Nationals on the road and Track, and face other elite and pro teams in stage races around the Pacific Northwest. But the support of the team and teammates just makes me want to work harder and gives me the confidence that I’ve earned my spot racing with the elites and pros.

On the start of the new season though, I’d like to say one last time how much I have appreciated the support of Jamie and Nick at Super Champion Cycle Shop. Over my first two years of racing Jamie and Nick have helped me out with whatever they could, whenever they could. I remember sitting in the grandstands at the UBC Grand Prix three years ago, drinking a six pack and watching the race with Jamie. I told him I thought I might be fast enough to be in those races (for at least a couple laps), and he told me he was going to sponsor me to race the track if I trained and went at it. They supported me in my first year of racing and through until last year where I actually raced in UBC, I won the Enumclaw Road Race and came second in Provincial Championships on the road and track. I even got to mix it up with World Tour Pros in Tasmania in December. This crazy place I’m at right now, racing pros, at times National and World Champions, targeting my own Championships this season, I wouldn’t be in this place without two good friends helping out a broke bike messenger who was winning alleycat races occasionally. Thanks guys.

MAKING NEW FRIENDS IS RAD

I made some pals in Melbourne racing at the DISC. This track and the Silverdome in Launceston, Tasmania make me want to go ride more fast tracks. The next one I’ll be on of this calibre will be in Milton in October for Nationals.
