Kudos

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

I just read Sara Gross’ and Christopher Brown’s race report from Ironman Canada,…they were 2nd and 3rd respectively in the race. Congrats you two: www.saragross.ca, www.chrisbrownracing.com

As a reprieve from training and racing, turn your brains off and enjoy these videos:

Finally, a ride with Kyle

Friday, September 7th, 2007

I’ve been living in Calgary for almost 3 years now, and today was the first day Kyle Marcotte and I got out for any sort of training together – meeting at the Extreme Bean and heading east along the bike path.  I’m surprised at this, as both of us realize that given we are so evenly matched in races, it makes perfect sense to make a bit of an effort to get some training done together.  Historically, our work/training schedules just haven’t matched up well.  But with a little forward thinking, I’m hoping we can do a least a few training sessions together leading up to Florida.  It could only benefit both of us.

Welcome back my little world of training

Friday, September 7th, 2007

You left me for almost a couple weeks, and I didn’t get the chance to see where you went…How have you been? Anyways, it’s nice to see that you’ve decided to come back. I’ve been missing the way you make my heart go pitter-patter. I think we work well together,…you know, I make sure you’re looked after by giving you your fix of working me hard, while I enjoy just spending time with you. Give me a few days notice the next time you decide to go off on your own? Okay,…great. Nice to have you back, my friend. Let’s go for a run together real soon, shall we?

On a different note, my brother’s bicycle design program ‘BikeCAD’ is briefly shown in this commercial for HP products (it’s the program that Natalie is using in the clip to design her bikes).  BIKEFOREST is getting excellent reviews by all who are using its program.  There is definitely a ‘bike fitting’ application too,…as the program can import photos of a user on a bike, and anthropometric data – animating a rider in different positions on the seat, pedals, handlebars etc. representing how the person fits to the frame, before the frame is finally fabricated.  Pretty cool stuff.
