It is the night before I set off to pursue my career as a bicycle racer and with my nerves and excitement in check I can only think of what is yet to come. It is all of you, my supporters from the MGCC, that are first and foremost in my mind, because without you I would not be able to follow my dream.
Tomorrow evening at 6:30pm I will board a flight that will, after a quick change of planes in LA, set me down in Melbourne, Australia on Thursday the 17th at 9:55am. I am being met at the airport by the owner of Bike Force Australia, a 21 store chain, who I have been introduced to by MG rider Paul Jackson - THANK YOU AUSSIE PAUL.
This winter training journey is without a doubt going to give me the edge for next season. Being able to have 4 solid months of riding and racing in my legs will put me light years ahead of my competition!!! It is my goal to secure a pro level contract with the results that I gather over the Australian racing season and upon my return to Canada at the end of March.
Bike racing is my life and it will soon be my profession. I am 200% committed to achieving my goals on the bike and in life. Every minute of every day will be dedicated to this.
Every week from now until my return I will be blogging to MGCC to fully include you in my progression and transformation in becoming a pro rider.
Stay tuned, it is going to be an awesome journey.
Words cannot describe my excitement for this next chapter to begin and my appreciation for everything the MGCC has done for me.
THANK YOU MGCC!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS - please email me at anytime as part of my goal is to give back to the club what it is that I learn as I take these next steps.
