Sure enough, my so-called training did nothing to help the suffering, although I’m sure the suffering is never any less, you just go faster. I think I will be embracing the beer-drinking side of this sport more than the performance side, at least for the foreseeable future! Maybe next time the Brandy Handup will be up and running during the early races!

I ended my Cat 3/4 Men’s race on foot, as I was one of many folks who succumbed to a flat tire in the rocky gravel sections. Mine happened near the start of the last lap and it would have been easy to pull off into the pits, but I figured it’s always better to finish DFL than DNF. When results were announced, I was surprised to see my name 4th in Class! Perhaps others suffered mechanicals too. Needless to say, I’m hooked on ‘cross and really excited to have my old friends, the butterflies, back!
After my race I grabbed the camera and shot some video of the later categories…enjoy!

Giant Bicycles Canada Inc. has partnered with Steed Cycles to take part in the North Shore Mountain Bike Associations (NSMBA) trail stewardship initiative. Given our geographic location and the rich north shore heritage of the “boogieman” trail located on Mount Seymour, the trail stewardship program seemed like a no-brainer to both Steed and Giant.Sunday, August 14th/11 represented the return of the Steed/Giant trail maintenance crew to the wilds of Mount Seymour to complete phase 3 of the boogieman stewardship project. After a quick application of rider repelling tape and trail closure signage at the boogieman trailhead, it was time to take a quick spin down the trail to meet with the rest of the crew for a quick safety meeting + build plan for the day.
