A few people have been asking where I’m calling ‘home’ these days, so I figured I should update this to let everyone know what’s up.
I’m currently still at my home in Maine while the Canadian Feds look over my immigration paperwork and decide whether I’m fit to move on up. For anyone who’s moved to a foreign country before, you probably know what a headache it is – endless paperwork for you and your employer, all to prove that you’ll be a worthy resident and you’re not stealing someone else’s job. Seeing as how this is a brand new position at Race Face and I’ve got a pretty unique resume, it would seem to be a slam dunk. Not so. We’ve finally completed all our paperwork, and with the help of uber-immigration consultant, Andy Osborne, we should have everything cleared shortly.
In the meantime, I’m putting in the hours here at my home office, with plans on moving out to the north shore during that first week of January. Ultimately, I think I’m more productive working from home, but while I learn the ropes at Race Face and get to understand all our systems, it will really help to be in the office on a regular basis.
I’ll need lots of help getting settled and finding good trails in BC, so PLEASE hit me up if you’re local to the area and down for taking a hack like me out on a ride.
See you all soon,

A great write up about our Tempest Jacket. Check it.
The Race Face Tempest Jacket
Review by Jon Angermeier
The transition months of fall and spring often times can dish up some highly unpredictable weather. When the weather is cool and wet and the air is thick, a lightweight highly breathable jacket that protects you from the elements is the go to piece of gear for a quick shuttle or an all day epic. The Race Face Tempest Jacket fits this profile perfectly.

John Mac & the guys at United Cycle kindly invited us out to Edmonton for their annual Bike Expo last weekend. Tippie & I decided to kill two birds with one stone & visit some Race Face dealers whilst we were out there…

*tap* *tap* *tap* Is this thing on??
Hello, blog-i-verse. This is my first transmission, and it’s great to be here. I’m the ‘new guy’ at Race Face, and I’ve been brought on board to help with marketing and to manage our line of protection. My official title is “Components/Protection Marketing Communications and Product Manager,” but you can call me by my self-appointed acronym: CPM-Squared.
If you look through my bio, you’ll see that I’ve been knocking around the bike industry for quite a while. I was an original co-founder of Evil Bikes/e.thirteen components, and I’ve been racing 26″ wheels steadily for 20 years now (with the notable and embarrassing exception of a season in the late 90′s when I ran some sweet 24×3.0′s). Holy smokes, does that make me feel old.
“Irregardless” of my advancing age and receding hairline, I’m still as passionate about bikes and racing as I’ve ever been. It’s great to be on board here at Race Face. I hope to make my co-workers, the brand, and most of all, you the customers proud over the coming months and years.
See you out on the trails!

I posted a few weeks ago about the web film I have been working on called ‘You Like This’ and since that post we have been going hard filming. I have been taking inspiration from big mountain skiing and I feel that the two lines pictured below best illustrate that.

Last weekend some of us here at Race Face stepped up and got dirty during a trail day for the well used Pangor Trail on the world famous North Shore Seymour Mountain. The North Shore Mountain Bike Association works tirelessly to maintain, support and protect the priceless trail network here on the shore. Race Face is proud to not only sponsor events like this but to also get out and work side by side with fellow riders. I encourage all riders to support their local bike associations and to attend events like trail days. Trails do not maintain themselves, they need our help…

Just back from an epic weekend of fall riding in Kamloops BC with Race Face riders Brett Tippie, Matt Brooks, Dylan Sherrard, Beth Parsons & Sarah Fenton. We were luckily enough to be joined by Transition Bikes very own Sam Burkhardt & wife Jessica, not to mention fellow Brits Will & Warren.
Here’s some GoPro footage from one of the awesome trails we rode. Look out for more soon. Thanks go out to Cheryl at the Bicycle Cafe. Stop by next time you’re in Kamloops.
