During the summer, a really good friend of mine, Dave, approached about building in his yard. He knew that I would need a place of my own to ride when ever if I was to continue to compete with the best in the world and be in constant contention at contests.
He had a spot in mind. He said, ’It was in the trees, the dirt was amazing to dig with and there was already a rolling built. Oh and there is a tractor to dig with. It would have been a really hard proposition to say no too. He is cool with me building what ever I want. Only thing he wanted was a smaller set of tables in order to learn and progress on as he would probably not be comfortable on riding the lines I built at first.
Construction started in the middle of October. The location has a slight grade to it making it perfect.
When we started to dig, the ground was incredibly dry. Just like moon dust. Reminded me of Kelowna or Kamloops. After day of piling we had a lot accomplished. The landing were piled for the first two jumps in the big set, as well as the two smaller jumps to the right.
Since then the rain has made the dirt much easier to work with and everything is packing in really nicely.

Today marked the beginning of production of our 2012 ATLAS cranks. We’ve re-jigged and re-tooled and now the hum can be heard throughout our building as chunks of aluminium are being reshaped into our latest commitment to a performance product.

Happy New Year!
No post since the last weeks of November, but I have some lame…I mean good excuses. Finished my Senior Thesis the first two weeks of December.
Then we got ready for and did Christmas with 5 different families including our nuclear one, all while sponsor hunting and getting ready for…
On Monday December 26th 2011 we welcomed our 4th child and 2nd son into the world!

To start off the New Year I have begun a Vlog on YouTube along with some live streaming of my training. It is all a little rough right now as it was a spur of the moment decision, but I plan on getting all the bells and whistles to make it crisp, clean, and entertaining. It should be updated close to daily and can be found on the upper left panel of my blog (reading on remote sites click this link) or here at my YouTube channel. SUBSCCRIBE AND SHARE!
Here is the New Years Eve ride from my webcam on Facebook that inspired the whole idea…
With big goals for 2012 and BEYOND, I have decided to take on a coach. It was a year in making the decision. After combing through and searching for the best possible ways to get faster on the bike I found that my new coach Danny Kaukola with FueltheBurn.com was the best fit for what I am trying to accomplish. You can find his website now linked on my blogs right panel and he will probably be doing some guest appearances via Skype on my Vlog and even here on the blog.
With a new coach, new vlog, and new season fast approaching the training is in full-swing already. The plan is changing quite a bit with Danny’s help in modifying the areas I was lacking on my own. Looking forward to a big year, with big results. Lots of returning sponsors and new sponsors to back it all up. Stay tuned for race schedule, sponsor announcements, and product reveals! HERE WE GO 2012!
Thanks for reading and watching,

A video from Lorien from Sooke Mountain Cycle here in BC, chopping his way to his bike, and shredding it in the morning with his Race Face and old school Roach gear! A nice way to kick off the new year. Thanks Lorien!
