The 2015 Canadian Cyclocross Championships

Winnipeg. Home to the past two editions of the Canadian CX Nats. This year’s version was even better than 2014 too, if that’s possible.

Next Up: The Toronto2015 Pan Am Games

When I retired from IBM back in 2011 (yes, it really has been over 4 years) and started out on my Next Chapter I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I only have to look back at some of the early blog entries to be reminded of that. I’m always up for …
