Some new additions to my support crew!

Just before leaving for Europe I was lucky enough to add a couple more sponsors to help support my racing needs.

Big thank you to Orange Seal cycling Products for the rush order or tire sealants, chain lubes and bike wash kit!  I am certain with all the rough terrain coming my way that everything will be put to good use!
I also want to say a big thank you to Joystick Bicycle Components for adding me to the team and for the awesome new carbon bars, stems and saddles!

 I had a chance to test everything out before leaving and things are feeling great and I was able to shave some weight on both my race rigs! 
I'm genuinely thankful for all the support and look forward to representing the brands well!

Here's a link to a few more pics of my new Juliana Bicycles "She-10" with the new components...thanks to Juliana Bicycles for getting the new DH race machine to me in time for the big trip and to Photographer Sean St. Denis for the photos.  What a sweet looking machine!

Enduro, enduro and more enduro!

It has been a little bit since my last post, but for good reason....it was a busy couple weeks of enduro racing before heading off on my trip to Europe and what has, turned out to be, a few weeks of intermittent internet access.
Post race at the Squamish Enduro
It all started with the first race of the inaugural "Sea To Sky Enduro Series" kicking off in Squamish on May 3rd...here's a cool little video by Max Berkowitz:  http://www.pinkbike.com/news/straight-outta-squampton-video-2014.html

 Round two was just a couple weeks later in good 'ol Pemberton.
Pemberton Enduro Training
I didn't fare too well in the first two rounds of the Sea to Sky Enduro series due to a mix of mechanicals and crashes, but it was still good practice and tones of fun, not to mention a great opportunity to test out my new Marzocchi 350 enduro fork!
Pemberton Enduro...pinning it on "Rusty trombone"
These two races were training to help prepare me for my first ever Enduro World Series which are to take place on May 30th and May 31st in Peebles Scotland....so it's time to start packing for our month long trip to Europe for lots of racing action with a bit of pure vacation thrown in at the end!

Stay tuned....
