2020 – Train, Train, and Train

I think that training is the obvious theme for the 2020 cycling season. With all racing on hold for now and for the foreseeable future, training is the focus. For me, I was able to spend a lot of time on the bike this year as cycling solo is socially distant. What I was grateful for most this year, besides health and happiness of my family and I, was the fact that I have an indoor trainer for my...

2020 in Review

This year has undoubtedly been a different type of year for the entire world and its affects were seen in the cycling community as well. What was expected to be an exciting season of racing turned out to be a year of hard training. When I realized that the 2020 racing season was likely to be a wash, I took it as an opportunity to focus on training and being prepared for whenever races started coming back. The training...

Borders still closed:-(

Greetings brothers & sisters! I waited until today to post and try not to sound like a broken record. Canada is still closed for non essential traveling, meaning races aren’t happening. The official government website was going to revisit this idea on Nov 21st, and the verdict is that they’ll stay hunkered down. It makes sense. Covid cases are spiking up due to flu season in the northern hemisphere. This is not the time to be risking and traveling I guess. But...

First race of 2020/2021 CANCELED

Hello fellow supporters and friends, I learned what I was afraid was going to happen. The 2 season openers, which were indoor races both in Dubai (October) and in Sweden (November) were canceled due to Covid. I was planing on racing the one in Sweden. And was really hoping it was going to happen. But things were not very promising and then finally it was official, canceled:-( What to do now? Keep training and focusing on the next one,...

DEDICATION

Hey hey! A good talking point is the inspiration to train or do something in general. We all know there can always be an excuse to not train. But when you want to reach the highest level of competition, excuses are no good. You have to give your all to deserve to be there. This is something I learned from my triathlon former coach, Jack Bianchi, “I can’t teach you motivation” he said. He could give me all the training...
