Test of Metal

The Squamish Test of Metal took place this last weekend on a soggy west coast afternoon. For the first part it felt like my legs were made of burnt jello as I slipped to 40th before finding a little metal in my blood and coming through for a 14th finish. The day reminded me of hockey games where your down 5-0 before you figure out were you are and then trying to make a game of it from there. Overall the race was pretty cool as we constantly swung up into the mountains then back down into the hoards of fans in dt squamish. This event proved once again, apart from Jasper, squamish might be the next best place to mtb in the world. Endless singletrack, big mountains, clean air and a vibrant small community. Off to iron out the legs before the real season starts with Provincials in two weeks and then off with the Alberta Team to Nationals in Mt Washington.
