Jeff Beatty had an excellent race, coming in 15 th for the Junior Men. I was nearing the same result for the senior women before I blew through the tape two corners from the finish and was disqualified. Will Routley tackled the tough cross country course and came out with 44 th place (and a big headache). That?s how racing goes, some good, some bad. But we came back with some cool Canadian jerseys and an awesome experience!
Thanks for supporting us and next year we?ll throw an even bigger party since the world championships will be held in Austria.
Thanks to our coach Chris Colbeck, and Martha Heintzman for driving non stop to see the race, to Fanatyk Co for fixing my bike, Scott for putting up with my travels, and my parents for picking me up in Seattle. And a big thanks to all these generous supporters who didn?t hesitate to give prizes for our fund-raiser.
Best trails in the World
As the 2001 WORCA Trail Maintenance Program comes to an end, I would like to express thanks to the following who?s help and generosity has been overwhelming: the WORCA Trails Committee: EVOLUTION, Lawrence and the staff @ Black?s, Carson, Duane & Bill of the BCR Lands Development, The Glacier Shop Team, Pete and the gang @ The Bike Co., Ru @ Teppan Village, Jen Lychy, Scott Hunter (perfect attendance record-awesome!), Don MacLaurin, the Outpost, Chris Bishop, Chris from the WOODLOT!, Channa Pepola, Andrew DeBoer, Keith Bennett, the Spin Sisters, Kip @ Merlin?s, Candace @ Cycling B.C., the Samurai (yamato domashi!), Dale Douglas, the RMOW and all the people that donated wood for free.
A very special thanks goes to Chris Markle, the WORCA trail contractor and Vanessa Carrington, the WORCA secretary. It was a pleasure working with you both this summer and I really appreciate all your hard work and dedication.
I would also like to thank all the volunteers who came out for the Whistler, Pemberton and Spruce Lake trail days and the eight Whistler trail nights.
We are blessed in this town to have such a strong mountain bike community, a community that respects and relishes this incredible environment we call home.
