All done for 2018

Thanks so much to all 154 riders who came out to play at this year’s rides.

We had a beautiful day and everyone had a great time.

The new rest stop location at Narrows Locks was a huge success and Bushtukah outdid themselves with the offerings.

Velofix was kept busy with more than a few mechanicals and flat tires. The gnarly section on the Dirty ride took its toll on a few tubes. May they rest in peace. But everyone made it back safe, sound and happy, except the guy with 7 flats. Safe and sound, yes, but not happy.

Stay in touch for next year’s information.

Rick used to say his best times were well out of reach nowadays, and that he still tries really hard, and he's there to help you achieve your potential, and then came Sept 16th, 2006 and he popped an unbelievable 8:41:14 Iron Distance at the Esprit Triathlon in Montreal. This was a whopping 41min best time, for a guy that had already gone 9:23. And to add encouragement to everyone, he turned 40 that year!! As a triathlete, Rick was given All American Team status three times as a junior (ranked Top Five in North America), then turned professional and raced around the world in everything from Olympic Distance (best time of 1:45) to Half Ironman (best time of 3:57) to Ironman (best time of 8:41:14). He raced on the French professional team based in Salon de Provence in 1989/90/91, racking up numerous wins and rarely being out of the top 10 finishers.
