I had the sensation that things might change this year as I got in my last workout at home before heading to the familiar Canada Cup Venue at Mt. Tremblant. Sure enough I was behind the news and the organizers had put in some work to loop the first single-track back towards the village and the ‘classic’ minime (13-14 year olds) descent beside the river would be used by the elites after being passed-by for so many years. The minime descent is quite rooty, technical and really fun so I was excited to get to race it.
I felt good on the start and was within the top 20 and soon closed a few gaps that ‘eager’ starters had let open. I found the Wheel of Watson (shotgun novel title) and decided that it was the day we would race together. Sure enough I bobbled 3 times in 10 feet on the big mud hole and ended up going over my limit to get back on lap 2. Regrouping I rode steady and consistent, albeit with less speed then I would like. Ended up in 13th and grabbed a couple points.
