Scroll through the picture bar for the "Port Alice Bike Race" (sorry the embed function isn't working)
Yup, this was our weekend :) Team Pringle (Pro City Racing) and Dyck (Trek Canada) had our 15 secs of fame..hehe....and a really fun hard saturday ride.
Island Cup finals were in Port Alice this past weekend.....far north island. Neither Regan and I had been up that far, so it was a pretty neat adventure. So beautiful...and the most amazing and hard xc course...gnarly steep climb with super fast fun downhill. It was a lot of driving in one day, but the course and the amazing salmon dinner after (how could a fresh salmon dinner from a small coastal community ever be bad) was definitely worth it.
Regan had his first win!!!!!!! Sweet!! And I took the Island Cup overall, being the only elite woman to show..haha....one of one baby!
No matter how many big races like the World Cups, US Cups and Canada Cups that I do, I always love having the opportunity to go out and ride these really cool local races where you get such a wide variety of people (guys in dress shirts and knee pads), wide variety of abilities (11 year old girls in jeans and a luge helmet), and wide variety of activities (custom funny bikes that I was told were later used for fire burning). Grassroots is where it's at!
