Jayson broke his collarbone in this morning’s bike race. He has been working like a dog over the past months to get into great form and it’s a shame he has to sit out for a few weeks. Don’t worry Face, you will be dropping us again in no time.
2012 was a pretty good year on the bike. Here are some numbers.
I competed in over 50 races. Totaling 1636 miles and over 71 hours. I loged 8509 training miles with a sum of more than 566 hours. All of that totals to 10145 miles and over 26 full days on the bike in 12 months.
I couldn’t think of a better way to round out a big year on the bike than to participate in the Rapha Festive 500. I managed to eke out 501km between Dec 24 & Dec 31.
Lets hope 2013 is an even greater year, in numbers and accomplishments.

Back in August Deux North took a group of riders to the Adirondacks to learn a bit about passion, pain and themselves. Directed by Aaron Vaquez whose talent and kindness is a blessing and inspiration.
If you are new around here, Deux North is brand I run with my little brother Dylan that’s telling a different kind of story. It is a story of unabashed childish freedom and thrill. This is about the past, happening now. Friendship, adventure, and experience are your characters in a story about city life told amongst nature, and the last one there is a rotten egg.
