Talking about finding little victories and legitimate ones, how to balance them out and define success. There are some hard lines, but generally thoughtful and still impactful for me to re-read.
Missing the good old blogging days and struggling with social media feedback loops, so here we are. // Initially, when the season was cancelled, I was relieved. This pause has made me stop and think a lot, about myself, my pursuits as a racer, and if now is the time to reinvent myself or go back to old roots.

Big block of racing to start off the cx season and almost even bigger results! First UCI win, World Cup top 10’s… it’s been a lot, I can hardly believe it.

First bike trip abroad and not wasting any time diving straight in to the two biggest cyclocross World Cup’s on the circuit. Great racing, crazy fans, awesome team.
Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down.
Kentville was my last “race-race” of the season. All I wanted from the Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup this year was to come to terms with the course that brought my run-away debut season to a halt last summer.
