Events

We’re involved in various events and in various capacities throughout the year, sometimes volunteering in a small or more significant way, other times donating merchandise for prizes, and sometimes competing.

Below is a list of tentative events we’re planning to be involved in for 2013.

Actif Epica, Feb 18, Scott, Deanna, Tom – We’re volunteering and have donated some prizing for this event.

Spring Paddling Trip, May 18 & 19, Scott, Deanna, Dean, Kara, and kids – Starting 100 km upstream on the Assiniboine River (near Portage La Prairie), we’ll follow the meandering river home, stopping half way at a bed & breakfast near St. Francis Xavier.

Pain in the Assiniboine, June 23, Scott, Deanna – Scott will act as Deanna’s support crew as she tries to podium after placing 4th in this paddling and cycling event two years ago.

8 Hours of Falcon Ridge, July 20 & 21, Scott, Deanna – 2 years ago at this race it was over 40C in some spots on the course and Scott tanked almost immediately (along with acquiring a nasty saddle sore) and fell well short of his goal of riding an hour on, an hour off for 24 hours.  This year he’s planning to do the 8 hour event solo with a similar ride a lap, rest a bit, ride some more strategy.  Even getting in 50 km or so on this technical and hilly terrain is a good ride so 5 solid laps plus some solid hanging out with friends makes for a productive weekend.

Cyclocross Season, Sept-Nov, Scott?  It’s been a couple of years since Scott was silly enough to ‘contest’ the cyclocross season.  He might be dumb enough to do it again, but whether we’re riding or spectating we’ll likely find ourselves near some ‘cross courses com cx season.
