London 2012

So close; Selected but not chosen.  I was selected but not chosen, the news was released yesterday.

The course is to hilly and I am a big guy, better on the rolling or flat course. It is a big disappointment for me that has been working very hard for this moment.

I had pushed my self to the max, mentally and physically. I do not choose the course so will have to live with that. In Italy I finished 4th on a rolling course with an average of 41. 293 kl average, against the best in the World. I am in good shape. Again what a disappointment.

I want to thank all the community and sponsors for believing in me. It is because of you that I made it this far in my sport.

I will continue training.

Thank you for all, your interest in my carrier, your support, encouragements. It was an interesting four years since my last Games in China, with it's highs and lows. I gave all I had, and can say today that I can walk with the head high.

See you on the road. bye for now.

Canadian Championships

Last weekend was the Canadian Championships in Lac Megantic Québec. The weather was great even if there was a good wind. The coarse was pretty hilly for a handbike so the smaller guys had a good advantage on this kind of road. I still finshsed 3rd overall and 2nd in my category. World Cup next weekend in Baie Comeau Québec.
