24hrs of Adrenalin

24 in Camnore last weekend was ridiculously rad. Not going to lie, I am pretty f’d up at the moment. The opening lap was dangerous with a 4 minute le mans run to start out the event. I lost over 1 minute in this to some dude in baggy shorts and was probably 30th. I was embarrassed so I ripped it up on the first couple laps putting in a solid gap on the other soloists.

24 dominator Leighton Poidevon from Canmore kept it close for the first 8hrs before falling ill in the night. This left a decent gap to the next rider, Luke Way, and allowed for some solid cruising throughout the night. Luke Way, who also grew up in Jasper and is the owner of TriWay bike fitting had an amazing ride to come in 2nd. Way to go buddy!
The closest call in upsetting the ride was when I came upon 6 other riders stopped on the trail claiming there was a bear and 3 cubs up ahead. I figured I was faster then a couple of the riders so I convinced them that if we all rolled togethar we could probably make it. We went through, Momma bear looked pissed, we all pinned it and apparantly all lived happily ever after….
23 hrs and 54 minutes after starting I rolled around to finish my 20th lap and claim the National 24hr Solo Championships and a trip to Australia for Worlds in October!
Here we come Aussies!
Huge thanks to my pit crew who kept things togethar for me throughout the night. Lilla Roy, Reiner Thoni, Travis Hauck and Dad, you guys are amazing!
I am pretty impressed I got this blog out. Off to the mtns to feed on fresh trout and wild blueberries.
