Wow, XTERRA Canada is probably the hardest XTERRA I’ve done, mostly on the mental side. Super technical mountain biking, and the kind I’m not used to, lots of bridges. Before I came to Whistler I’d only rode on bridges a few of times, with some bad experiences etched in my head. Needless to say I had some fears I had to overcome going into this race. I rode as well as I’d hoped, even rode a large percentage of the bridges and had the 2nd fastest swim and run splits. Specialized teammate Mel killed it and won beating some super fast mountain bikers. Josiah won the men’s race. Thanks to my sponsors Specialized, GU, Avia, Rudy Project and Blue Seventy. Next up XTERRA US Nationals in Ogden, lets just say the bridges there are about 10x as wide!
Here’s some more photos from the trip:
