April Updates

March was a great but tough month. I came 11th in the World in Netherlands in long track speed skating against abled bodied skaters. Great event with great results. The officials and skaters were all very supportive, and my visit to the Netherlands was a nice experience.

Right after my event I caught a nasty chest infection, causing me to rest for two weeks after. I am back on my feet getting ready for the tandem cycling season.

I have a new pilot this season and his name is Scott from Milton. We will be racing in four competitions this season. I am also trying to raise funds to purchase a new racing tandem through Go Fund Me fundraising. If you can donate towards this great purchase it would be much appreciated.

You can also email me if you need more info. For now, I will be going full throttle with my training.
