93. The 2019 Kingston Trophy

A Tale of 4 Races:  Part 3 XC Marathon race #4. The Kingston Marathon. Substance Projects. What the hell just happened?

Annnnnd, I didn't even have to race the marathon distance at Kingston.  Yeah, I had enough points from XCM1 … Continue reading 93. The 2019 Kingston Trophy

89. The XCM SSIT…WTF

The 2019 Sausage Suit ITT... Wohoo, what a great race! Which is what I'd be saying if I had a great race. I did not, in fact, have a great race. I mean, IT was a great race (because um, Substance Projects), but it just wasn't a great race for ME (because um, me). Actually, … Continue reading 89. The XCM SSIT…WTF

69. King Race Series

Hooray for Tuesday Nights! Tuesday, May 29.  4PM:  I have to get home, change, see my kids, jam some dinner in my belly, prep by bike and gear, and then make the harrowing 1 hour trek across the city, and then north of it, to King City, for the King Race Series, at Centennial Park. … Continue reading 69.

68. SingleTrack Classic

Two Dudes, Two Forks, One Bowl Team Colin at the SingleTrack Classic! I have to say it.  Phew.  I'm glad the 2018 SingleTrack Classic is finished. Well, sort of.  I'd race it again right now if I could, but the SingleTrack Classic, presented by Pulse Racing, at Hardwood Hills, was my third weekend on a … Continue reading 68.

66. Spring Epic 8 Hour

8 Hours, 30 Minutes, and 2 Bikes I have the hurts. Saturday's Epic 8 Hour, presented by Chico Racing, at Mansfield Outdoor Education Centre was a killer, and that's all there is to say about it. Except that's not all I have to say.  There's much more to say about the Race-That-Shouldn't-Have-Been-But-Was-And-Then-Almost-Wasn't (But-Still-Shouldn't-Have-Been ) And-Then-Was-But-Was-Still-So-Very-Hard. … Continue reading 66.

57. Sausage Suit 2017

Did somebody say "Sausage Suit Fest"? What can I say about the Sausage Suit ITT that I didn't say last year?  It was the same awesome course; pretty much the same awesome people; and the same awesome Team Van Go..rilla. It was:  Dufferin County Forest, Substance Projects, Dan Marshall and his crew, and some of … Continue reading 57. Sausage Suit 2017

56. Dirty Enduro 2017

Ganaraska Forest, (Paul's) Dirty Enduro, 60k, and Me 5 years ago, at the end of my first year racing, I did my first Paul's Dirty Enduro, 30k distance. When I got to the race, a friend was standing outside of the Ganaraska Forest Centre Quonset hut.  He was doing the 60k.  I couldn't believe it--he … Continue reading 56. Dirty Enduro 2017

55. The Epic 8 Hour

What. The hell. Was that? The Epic 8 Hour, presented by Pulse Racing, at Hardwood Hills was an absolute killer. I thought I was registering for a bike race. I thought I was going to ride a little 10k lap, on a few sweet trails at Hardwood Hills. I thought it would be challenging, and … Continue reading 55. The Epic 8 Hour
