It was eleven weeks ago Sunday that I broke my leg riding in the bike park. A complete fluke of an accident and I was sidelined for the remainder of the season. Dealing with physical side of not being able to move around, was nothing compared to the emotional side of things. Factor in a few other notable occurrences for 2010, and it adds up to a very hard year.

Whoever you are.
As you know, the park is now closed in Whistler…
As you might not know- I’ve moved to North Van! Horrrayyy!
I’ve been checking out the local trails and learning (slowly) how to shore ride.
Pretty excited about that!
I wish the N. Shore had a ride night like Whistler’s “Loonie Rides”.
Maybe we should start one up.
Here are some photos from the summer~

Here’s a bunch of links to the Whistler Bike Park trails that I filmed for Ken over at Camp of Champions. It was a big day of riding, lots of laps! In fact, Tippie and I set a record for the most trails shot in one day! Check out a few or all of the GoPro movies here…

As I find myself continually sitting on the couch watching the world go by, I reflect on one of the best years riding thus far.
Do I say that each year? Yep… and it just re-enforces that riding is something that I am going to continue doing once my leg heals. I have about two weeks until I can put weight on it and then I have to get the strength back on it before I can ride again. Time is all I need…
The following are some shots from a 3 day trip I took with Todd Hellinga and Seb Kemp, stopping in Lillooet, Sun Peaks and Silver Star. The trip culminated with NSMB Airprentice in Silver Star.
Going to try and get back on my game to spend the closing weekend in Whistler. I just got wind that Dirt Merchant is being re-worked, and I want to be able to throw some laps in.

Well the last few weeks I would have to describe as pedally. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on my road bike and xc bike, putting in some miles and giving my legs something to talk about. More importantly, I finally made it back out on my DH bike after what seemed like forever. My shoulder has been holding me back for a little while now – injured my rotators a few weeks ago and have been trying to let them heal up since. I was hoping to be back in the saddle and ready to go by the Canadian Open but no such luck. I rode a couple of days in Whistler during Crankworx to test it out and knew pretty quickly that I wasn’t quite there yet. So it was back on the xc bike for me…
Bryden and I headed out to Squamish and spent one of those very hot days pedaling up hills on the Test of Metal course. That course isn’t really the funnest riding around but it definitely makes you work for your milage and we were both feeling ready for a workout. So we spent a good 5 1/2 hrs riding around sweating… it was fun in that hot sticky kind of way.
By the time we were done the sun was setting and we were happily exhausted. Not quite the adrenaline rush of the Canadian Open, but a great day nonetheless!

Congrats to Michal Prokop for taking the gold at Crankworx in the Giant Slalom. Michal tamed the fast track and world class field, taking out Danny Hart in the final while sporting RaceFace SIXC Handlebars and other RaceFace hardware. Check out Michal at the next World Cup in New York and the Worlds in Mont St. Anne.
Another big shout out to Remy Absalon on taking the title at the Crankworx Enduro. Remy took on the amazing course and world cup class field and pulled away on his RaceFace SIXC bar and DEUS crankset. Remy told me after the race that the SIXC bar ‘is the perfect handlebar’, I really cannot disagree with Remy on that one! Good luck to all our riders as they push through the final races of the season and head toward the MTB Worlds in QC.

The other week I did some filming with the Rocky Mountain Sherpas for a short promotional film they are making for Health Match BC. Health Match BC is a recruiting agency that works to bring registered nurses and doctors from around the world into BC, and one of the ways they do that is by showing the world how beautiful and amazing BC is. Last year they made a film to recruit doctors, and this year they’re making one targeted towards nurses. Being a registered nurse and having a passion for riding/racing my bike, they decided I could help them out by giving nurses around the world a glimpse of the riding here in North Vancouver and also speaking about what it’s like to work here, and how those two parts of my life fit together so well.

Filming in a creek – 3 people, 6 feet, and 1 soaker (unlucky Malcolm!)
The film is supposed to be ready by the end of August so I’ll be sure to share it when it’s out!

Race Face Offices and Operations: Gear for him and her by Adrienne Schofhauser
The video ad on Pinkbike was just a few seconds long but it hooked me every time: A rider shredding a trail at Whistler just before Crankworx—slashing a berm, hucking, schralping down a steep rock face, clattering over rocks and roots before jumping out of the trees and down onto the course, where a 15 foot stunt drop is landed ease. She removes her fullface and smiles. Yes, she: Race Face international team rider Beth Parsons. Beth is just one of the inspiring females riders on Race Face’s women-packed teams.
The bike component and clothing company has long been known for their innovative men’s gear and quality parts. But two years ago, Race Face launched their For Her line of soft goods, designed specifically for women shredders—with R&D done by women and testing by…women.read more
