T-TOWN 2011!!!

Thursday, 28 July 2011 by

There is something about Trexlertown, PA, that keeps drawing me back year in and year out to race and train at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center. I’m not sure if its the 40+deg weather that is always guaranteed at this time of year, or the abundance of international riders, or just the atmosphere of the

Pan-Am Prep

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about why I didn’t go to Worlds this year so I guess I should answer that first. The short story is that after a series of unfortunate events, our starter, Stephane, got injured and was unable to ride his bike for some time. After many discussions with

World Cups #1&2

Wednesday, 05 January 2011 by

Well I know it’s a bit delayed, but heres the run-down of how the first two World Cups of the Olympic qualification cycle went. This was my first time in Australia, and man, what a beautiful place (except for the darn hay fever!). I was hoping to see some kangaroos, but apparently they don’t live

Wow, where has the time gone. It just struck me today that I haven’t updated my blog in what seems like an eternity. Quite a bit has happened since the last update from T-town, so I’ll try to catch you up with the basics: I decided last minute to come home from T-town a bit

As I write this I begin my third week here in T-Town, Pennsylvania. I’ve come down with the rest of the Canadian sprinters for some training and weekly racing. It’s amazing how much more fun training is when it’s with team mates. The day before I made the 6 hour drive down to PA, I

Back to Blogging

Well I have been home now for what seems like a record amount of time. I believe it’s even been more than a month now! I can’t believe where the time has gone. Oh wait I know: account for two summer courses, one part time job, and then of course training… I’d say I’ve been

Pan-Am Trials

Wednesday, 28 April 2010 by

I was barely home for a week before it was time to head back to LA… This time it was for Pan-American Trials. I could not afford too much time away from home at this point (since it was exam season), so I flew in one day early. Trials went off without a hitch, except

Worlds: Part2

Wednesday, 28 April 2010 by

This was by far the biggest team Canada had ever brought to the World Championships, with 9 athletes and 9 support staff. For the first time Canada’s prescence at the Championships could be felt. Race day came up before we knew it and we were on the line. The entire day is quite a blur

Worlds: Part1

Wednesday, 28 April 2010 by

After a quick 8 hour flight in the exit row (Why do flights seem so much quicker when you have a reasonable amount of leg room?), I arrived in Holland along with one other teammate from Toronto. You may wonder why Holland, since I just told you Worlds were in Denmark. Well, for the first
