The final week is over!! Great to see nearly 30 out for one last hurrah! I thought they were both pretty fun, a climb with two good kicks, and then a nice fast one that's a bit longer.
I'll just be focusing this week's results here, and will post a final blog post with all the series results in the next couple days.
My Cyclocross Skills School clinic series had it's first day today, fantastic bunch of peeps learning to get on and off their bikes quickly and efficiently, clear barriers and more! There's still two weeks left, the next two Sundays (and then Cross on the Rock starts the following week!) Details and sign-up are here: https://abouttheride.ca/cyclocross-skills-school/
A big round of applause to all of you, thanks again for being part of this!!! 🤩
Notes for the week:
Once again no errors last week, yay!
Please do review the OVERALL results, if you see any issues, please let me know ASAP!!
02 <- THIS MANY WEEKS WITHOUT AN ERROR 🤣
If there are any errors, omissions, issues, concerns, or anything else, feel free to hit reply!
This week's sponsor is the new KeepDopersWinning.com race series. They say:
Just because an athlete cheated, shouldn't they continue to profit from their name, which they worked so hard for?
We're organizing sports competitions to celebrate their achievements, and keep their names in the limelight!
Coming soon will be the Jacques Demers Power Lifting Championships - why should getting caught with 400 vials of testosterone set anyone back? That's just not reasonable!
We're also proud to be hosting the Ben Johnson Sprint Invitational, and will be action packed featuring many of the top sprinters of the world!
Finally, join us for Ryder Hesjedal's Giro de Canada! You may not even know he's an admitted doper and cheat, but surprise, he is! (Ryder only had to come out because that jerk Rasmussen wrote a book about it, and it would have looked even worse if he didn't bring it up days before the release of the book!)
Never mind the ethical ramifications of cheating others in fair sport, or denying other Canadian cyclists an opportunity to race clean, Ryder was just doing what everyone else was doing, including another local rider, Seamus McGrath, and doing drugs! What's wrong with that? Why should we expect better behaviour from top athletes than we would from a 6yr old?
He won the Giro d'Italia thanks to his years of training (never mind the completely unknown period of doping since he refuses to actually talk about it, and the prolonged long-term benefits), and why should he be condemned for failing to take any meaningful anti-doping position afterwards? Who in the world thinks people should be accountable for their actions? Especially in 2023?!! TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP!!!!!
Sorry about that! Anyway..
We're also proud to let you know that Lance Armstrong will also be attending the Giro de Canada, another big name in cycling loved by all!! (And we won't mention how we're paying him $500,000 to attend, and that's part of the reason your entry is $1800. These things are totally unrelated!)

Spotted a new release from Neil Young, and Chrome Dreams is actually a 'missing album' from the 70s that's finally been released (think Rust Never Sleeps era). No new tunes, but some pretty cool renditions of songs fans are familiar with. Sedan Delivery is one of my favourite songs, and this features a much more tame version, with some different lyrics, pretty interesting..! Might be worth a spin....Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me... 🎶
