Edmonton World Championship

The Edmonton triathlon was a great experience for everyone but for those of you checking the results, it was not as successful for me.  I hit a pothole on the bike and flatted out.  I went down on a corner. A little road rash and after two inner tubes I still couldn't fix the flat!

Now in Banff.  Water very cold, mandatory wet suit.  Bob Wooff would love the bike course.  About 4 km constant UP and 3 km windy down. Race is on Saturday.

Saturday Bike Rides

 Saturday bike rides continue at 8:30 am with great success! We had several stretches of strong pulls today for those who wanted. We even had a coffee in Sidney as an option, with a shorter ride home. Rick Wutzke is back from Europe with great stories. Coming up East Saanich we were warned about the police at the Panorama corner. We dutifully stopped at the STOP sign and observed another rider coming down the hill with a police car in pursuit. Obviously he didn't get the message! Bob and Val Wooff are having a great time in Europe. Attached are pictures of Bob at the peak of Mont Ventoux and Val on the top of the Neiderhorn. They hope to have them back with us soon. Brick workout? Keith Evans has started to add a short run at the end of the bike ride. Bring along your running shoes if you're up for it.
