2012 is long gone now and 2013 is in full force, with many events already in the works. This is a quick picture slide showcasing what we were up to last year.
Linked up with a really cool, talented dude named Paul who runs a powder coating and anodizing business called Villain Motorsports. Got my fat rims painted park tool blue.
Next up was Lindsay’s race “Where’s the beach in Stead” I decided to ride out to Stead along the Trans Canada Trail the day before.
My pugsley setup for daily commuting….
And now for an overnight camp out. Complete with a Revelate frame bag and handlebar sling to hold my Mountain Hardwear sleeping bag and tent
This is the view of my handlebar setup with a Revelate pocket holding my maps, food, sunscreen and Iphone.
My first stop for a break was in Lockport. Beautiful view of the dam.
I had a bit of trouble following the trail after leaving Selkirk, wasted a bunch of time and decided to stop at the only restaurant open in Tyndall on Canada Day weekend. Food was great and much needed.
A few hours later after surviving the sandy ATV trails of Mars Hill Preservation i made camp in Stead much to the happiness of the swarms of hungry mosquitoes. Yikes!
July is always our busiest month of the year. This time it started with a Trials demonstration at the forks in conjuction with MEC Bikefest. We ended up making it into the Free Press
Folk Fest was next up, with myself supporting a 600+ group of riders, with my bike mechanic knowledge, for a ride out to the festival. I decided to ride the pugsley with fat wheel setup this time. The fat bike was a huge hit with folkfesters!
It made for a really rough ride home after 5 days in the sun dancing and partying.
24 Hours of Falcon Ridge: Dj Riddim and Sub 19 hit the decks and the trails for 24 hours of fat beats and gnarly trails
August brings the MS Tour Biking to the Viking. Adrian and I used the opportunity to lend our mechanical knowledge to help the participants complete they’re bicycle journey from stonewall to Gimli and back. We also brought our trials bikes to ride the Gimli harbor, and do a little bit of filming. It seemed that the occasion opened up a few old wounds. (terrible pun)
Dark Cross: Riddim on the decks and Mard on the course
Commemorating ‘Trackside’ with the PCP boys
Roadtrip to Calgary, including the Trials Rodeo competition in which i placed 3rd
Our trip to cow town sparked a few competitions of our own back in the peg.
The nights get longer and winter is on the way….
Snow falls and the future peg city trials members are practicing in their living rooms
The first big snow fall hits and we’re out ripping our fat bikes
Time to relax, enjoy the winter months, and plan the next season of fun.
