2015 The Year That Was

By | December 30th, 2015|Celebration, Charity, Motivation, Racing, Speaking, Training|

My last couple of blogs have been written with sadness in my heart, but this year has also been one of a number of huge highs to go along with those lows. With just a few days left in 2015 (where the heck did it go?) I thought I would write about those highs and [...]

Reflections

By | December 17th, 2015|BLOG, Celebration, Family, Friends|

I’m sitting here in San Francisco waiting for my last flight to get me back to Toronto for Christmas, people watching and wondering where everyone is going? Each airport I have been at in the last 20+ hours have been jam packed with people no doubt heading to spend the holiday season with loved ones, [...]

Africa At It’s Best

Wow what a fabulous way to end our stay in South Africa than with a little sightseeing!  This morning most of the team were treated to a  flight in our hosts light plane like I had at the start of our time here.  Brian took each person that wanted to up for a ten minute [...]

World Cup – Road Race – Last Race for the Season!

By | September 12th, 2015|BLOG, Celebration, Racing|

Being the last major race for the season I wanted to end it on a good note.  As I had been beaten by Jill Walsh USA at the World Championships in Switzerland I decided I had to ride this race a bit different.  Never one for being very good at tactics I really had to [...]

On my way to winning Gold Today was a day that I never thought would ever happen...winning my 3rd World Championship Individual Time Trial!  It just still, 10 hours later, seems surreal!  But it has happened and I couldn't be happier, I don't ever want this bubble to burst! I did wake up [...]

Unbelievable!

By | July 27th, 2015|BLOG, Celebration, Motivation, Training|

Arrived in Switzerland yesterday very tired and drained from the World Cup Road Race, had dinner and hit the sack.  This morning I had classification and then headed out on a ride by myself and found myself staring at mountains in the distance. I still have a hard time believing that I am really here! [...]

Road Race – Elzach World Cup

By | July 26th, 2015|Celebration, Motivation, Racing|

After a rest day on Saturday I had the road race today.  I really wasn't sure if I was looking forward to it or not as it was an extremely technical course with about 17 corners on it.  With 6 laps to do that meant that I was going to be doing 102 corners, not [...]

Riding Solo

By | July 2nd, 2015|BLOG, Celebration, Motivation, Training|

I have to admit that most of my riding is done with others.  This is a huge change from when I first started riding my trike.  I was slow, heavy and rode by myself, but then as I got lighter, fitter and started to become faster I was able to join group rides.  I absolutely [...]

Life Never Stops

By | May 5th, 2015|Celebration, Motivation, Racing, Training|

It's been a while since my last blog.  In fact it has been almost 2 months but that certainly doesn't mean that life has stopped.  In fact life has been busier than ever! I think the main thing that has gone on in my life is that I finally finished writing, editing and approving my [...]
