Two-Wheelers and Frisbee discsMay 3, 2012
School is over! Well at least for the next 4 months anyways. I think I successfully graduated my 2nd of a planned 5 years of mechanical engineering, if I keep going at this rate that is. 4 courses plus riding tricycles was on the limit of manageable all winter. Really toed the line with how little I could focus on school and still make it by.
So now all there is to focus on is riding two-wheelers and throwing Frisbee discs around by the water. I’d say that’s a nice change of pace. Still working the brain with Rosetta stone French, or I will start to eventually this summer. But it’s about to get busy again really soon.
Just raced over in Mansfield, Ontario this past weekend at Chico Racings Ontario Cup series. Mansfield being over in the greater greater Toronto area, or GGTA, is a nice track with lots of short steep climbs and twisting fast single track. The field turned out to be mostly strong under 23 riders, 8 of the top 10, that made for a fast race at 24.5 km/h average. A lot of people out to race in the morning and stayed to watch our race which was awesome! A lot of great support coming from Ontario and hopefully a new generation of young shredders are on the way as a result.
I am now finishing up some of the final preparations before heading to Europe for the first time this year. The plan is to fly into Prague, Czech Republic with the Canadian national team for WC #3. Really excited about that one after watching last year’s live feed, looks like a nice venue and amazing crowd. We are then driving over to La Bresse, France for the next round of the WC series. Then flying back home for two Canada cup events before nationals, and finally the two North American WC’s. The bulk of the season is finally upon us and with Olympic selection so close there is bound to be some good racing in the near future.
