My main goal this year was to maximise the balance between running my business and racing. I decided to push the start of my season later in the year to focus on the ‘Cross season.

Dan Gronross:

Nothing comes easy in life and in sport.  2014 did not end the way I had planned and that is the way that it is.  Learn from mistakes and revel in small victories.  Then train hard all winter and try your luck again. Favorite moment of the year was the Delta Crit where I was crashed out of the race in the 2nd last lap, almost pulled from the race by the follow car, but managed to get my way back and pull off a 7th place.  I must learn to tap into that energy each race. Then I flatted the next race at UBC. Thanks to Steed Cycles, and all the sponsors for the support.
