off season and other things

October is a nice time of year for me. You have a refreshing break get your plans ready for next year and start training slowly. With ITU Cross worlds being announced for the end of may next year, puts me in an interesting spot. Its a good time of year for me and May as always been a strong month for me racing wise (if i'm not slamming my finger in car doors). But if I am going to go I have some serious homework to do. Sardinia Italy looks like a great place. Will be interested to see the course etc. Then I can make a smart choice on if its worth it to go I am really thinking I might. After being off my mtb since end of July I rode for the first time on Sunday with Sean B, Felt nice to be on the bike everything still felt the same. I thought I would suck after taking that much time away. I have been spending much more time on the road bike working on fitness. Skills are there now its time to learn how to not let guys like Josiah ride me off their wheel on climbs and wide open flats. I am making a big investment on myself for 2015 going all in so to speak. I will still keep some of my jobs but I will cut back on some things to be able to race a little and have more consistency in training. The big reason I am able to dial things back is having some great sponsorship help! 2015 will see me in a lot of new products. Like to Thank Smith Optics and Blue Seventy very pumped to be supported by 2 great brands! Also a very Big thank you to Tom and Paul at Ciclowerks. They kept my bike running in top shape and help me with any bike related detail! worth the trip to Waterloo for sure! some photos from Whistler this year ! always fun riding.
