Provincial RR/Bastion Square Criterium

The Mighty kids went and played in Victoria this weekend in challenging weather on hard courses. On Saturday in the Road Race Andrew had a nice bunch sprint for 8th place in the Cat 4's with Ryan finishing 22nd. In the Women's race, Jenny was 10th in the bunch sprint after a good leadout from Claire in 17th.

Hill Climb action from Friday night. Ryder Hesjedal almost caught them and he started after they finished...

All Day Dirt

Mighty kids Tim and Morgman ventured forth to Salmon Arm for the Salty Dog 6 Hour MTB Enduro Race this past weekend.

Morgan competed with a teammate in the Men's Team 49-70 race and managed an excellent second place. Together they completed 9 laps in six and a half hours for a total of 90+ kms of trails.

Wyatt did it solo style in the Men's Sport under 40 category. He finished 6 laps in five and half hours (60+ kms) which put him in the middle of his group. (Tim actually finished 7 laps but was a minute over the time cutoff...)

Crazy fun! Well, crazy anyhow...


Tim sportin' a big ass shit-eatin grin!

Maybe these kids will come race on the road one day. It's working for one of my former mountain biker teammates...

Fun with Dirt

The Mighty kids went and played in the dirt this past weekend at the Suncoaster XC race. Highlights include Nick being told he is old and made to race Masters which seemed to phase him as he suddenly thought he was in a cross race and decided to run with his bike to finish the race. Also Basse was out giving it full gas in front of his little ones and Tim pinned a number on for his first race of the season. AND, the most amazing cow/dog I have ever seen.
