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!

Sausage Suit Individual Time Trial

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to come and read my latest blog post. It means a lot to see all of the post views, likes and comments about my blog.

Now on to my latest race, it was held on October 13th in Mansfield, Ontario. I have competed in this event for the last two years and had an absolute blast so I was really looking forward to this year. The event is called the Sausage Suit Individual Time Trial, I love the name and I wish more events had funky names like this one.

It was nice and warm leading up to the event and guess what, on race day the temperature had to drop and it was around 6 degrees. Not my cup of tea so I packed some extra racing gear and was on my way to the event. One of my favorite things about this race is that the start is at 1:30 in the afternoon, so I actually got to sleep in a bit :).

We arrived with about 1 hour to race time and that was perfect for me since I didn't have to be in the cold any longer then necessary. Once I signed in and g…

Lauf Forks in Review

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&…
