Back in July I raced in the Marymore GP, and with not riding my track bike in a year I was able to be competitive all weekend, was 4th in the miss and out and won a nice Benjamin :) Not bad right!

The Provincial Jersey is only awarded to Omnium Champions - Sprint and Endurance. This meant for the endurance Omnium (what I was competing in) it was the best overall racer after 6 different races. On day one we had the Scratch race (mass start regular old race), the 3km Individual Pursuit, and the Miss and Out (last person across the line every other lap is out!). Let me just say day one did not go very well. I forgot to put my thinking cap on in both mass start races, and well - it was my first pursuit in over 3 years...so I was not prepared. By the evening I was sitting in 3rd place, and very angry.

Knowing that I wasn't able to put in much prep for Provincials, I am super motivated to work my butt off to get ready for Nationals in Milton Ontario in January, where I can rep BC and TRT with pride.
I want to send a HUGE shout out to the Buckowskies for taking me under their wing, Jen Gerth for being an awesome friend all weekend, Meghan for still being my friend after I took her out, Kelyn and Burnaby Velodrome Club for creating such a good environment and race series, everyone at TRT for all of your endless support and to my mom and dad:).
