Welcome 2019

Another year has passed and a new year is upon us.

2018 was tough with challenges but I learned a lot and in the end it turned out great. During the year I tried some different events and I really enjoyed them, they are definitely on my 2019 race schedule. I also worked 3 jobs and that took its toll on my racing but I now know what I can handle and have better plans for my 2019 year. I had some good race results but I am planning on improving with the help of my coach Andrew Watson of AWI Coaching.

I have to thank all of my 2018 sponsors for supporting me through everything!


Lauf Forks,
Frog Cycles,
AWI Coaching,
Colour and Code, 
Glass Eagle Studios,
Pro Home Solutions,
Sir Sam's Ski & Ride,
Integrity Construction,
Todd's Independent Grocer,

I hope to continue working with all of these great sponsors in the near future. I will be on the hunt for new sponsors for this year, as it will be an exciting one.

For 2019 I am lining up some new events that I am very excited for and I can't wait to get the race schedule finished. My schedule will be online very soon for everyone to see! I have many plans in the works with my racing and in everyday life so I am hoping that 2019 will be the best year yet!

Lauf Trail Racer vs Lauf TR Boost Fork

For this blog post I am doing a comparison on two mountain bike forks designed and manufactured by Lauf Forks. I am going be reviewing the TR Boost and Trail Racer, they are both great forks and I am going to discuss what the pros and cons are.

The first thing that I noticed when I started to ride the TR Boost is that it is one of the stiffest forks that I have ever ridden. Compared to the Trail Racer the Boost fork has better responsiveness in corners and responds to what you want to do immediately. The Trail Racer isn't as stiff laterally as the TR Boost is and you will notice that when you are cornering hard there might be a bit of flex in the Trail Racer compared to none with the TR Boost. The 60mm of travel is the same for both forks so you wont notice any difference with your suspension.

Compared to the Lauf Trail Racer which uses a standard 100mm thru axle the Lauf Boost uses a 110mm thru axle. When I received the TR Boost fork I didn&…

5 Weeks Until Race Season

This winter has been a long one and I can't wait for the snow to start melting. With still lots of snow and only 5 weeks until the first race of the year I know it is going to be a crazy spring.

My training over the past 2 months has been good and I am feeling ready to get out and ride especially as I have completed my race schedule. I have made a big leap in the marathon seen as I am going to take on the 24 hour Summer Solstice this year as a Solo competitor. This event will be the biggest and longest race I have ever been apart of so it is a very big deal for me and I am super excited for it.

The rest of this years schedule is very exciting as seen below.
