Thank you Team Sponsor Jeff Wright Insurance Agency

Thank you to our friend Jeff Wright for coming on board as a team sponsor. Jeff has been a lifelong friend and we sincerely appreciate his support on this adventure!!
Jeff is also Blaine's insurance agent, so he knows what this team is truly capable of! Surely there won't be any snowplows in the Rockies this time of year??
(Jeff, what's our deductible on the RV?)

Please consider Jeff Wright Insurance Agency for your insurance needs. Visit Jeff's website at

Two months to go...

Two months. By this time in two months, we will be waking up in Tunnel Mountain Campground in Banff National Park, on our way to Panorama to register for the 'big race'.

All in all, I'm actually feeling pretty good: I think everyone wishes they had a little more time to train, but with the help of many people (I guess helping at a mountain bike event promotions company has benefits here), I've definitely come a long way. This time last year, I definitely would have balked at a 100km ride - now, I have been doing them routinely... and am starting to do them on my mountain bike (and hitting some trails in between!).

I also weighed myself this morning: I'm sitting at 175 lbs - the lightest I've been in YEARS. Like, since high school. That's going back awhile. I'm also developing some killer rider's tan... eat your heart out, Haydn.

Anyway, we'll start posting a little more regularly... or at least I will. I always have trouble figuring out what to write -which, if you know me, is really, REALLY hard to believe.
