I have the pleasure of returning to the role of Executive Director for the Glotman•Simpson Cycling Club. A category 1/2 racer, I have been a member of the club and the race team since 2010. While I continue to enjoy road racing, my efforts have been directed over the last few seasons to helping grow the club and provide support for all its members; be it for racing, riding or fitness. With the help of my fellow Race and Club Ambassadors we will turn Glotman•Simpson Cycling into a well tuned rotating paceline machine!

I started racing in 2014 and since then my passion for training and racing has only deepened. In these past few years I've come to appreciate how much dedication it takes to compete at this high level, nd how much you're rewarded by sharing that commitment with teammates and friends around you.

You'll find me hammering in the leadout, gasping for breath uphill, avoiding cold weather and chatting about training protocol and recovery strategies (hint: sleep more!) at every opportunity.

Result Highlights:
 I finished a UCI 1.2 road race! There's video proof!

2018 will be my sixth year of racing, my fourth year in Category 1/2. I’m Cree-Métis. I started cycling through the Aboriginal Youth Cycling club in 2012 when I was 17 and I’ve been racing and riding since that time. I couldn’t be more grateful for the start they gave me. I hope to share my passion for racing with my teammates this year and am thrilled to come onboard for my first full year with Glotman Simpson!

I think my decision to turn down Team Sky and join GS in Vancouver 5 years ago has been fully vindicated.  The GS camaraderie coupled with an abundance of coffee and donuts has delivered some real results.  This year I’m so looking forward to chilling with the Cat 3s and crushing it on my first Trek Madone.  Bring it on!

II joined the club in 2015 to meet people to ride with and to familiarize myself with group riding as my goal that year was to complete the Whistler Gran Fondo.  After the Fondo I found myself hooked and immediately set my sights on joining the GS race team for 2016.  After a successful 2016 Cat.4 season I had the opportunity to move up to Cat 3 and help support and learn from the guys in that group.  2018 will be my second year in the Cat.3 group.  I am looking forward to mentoring the group for another season and helping my teammates achieve their individual goals, as well as my own.

I'm super excited to not be riding my bike up Mt. Seymour every day this year! This means I'll be back on in action racing with Glotman-Simpson. This is my 6th season with the Team and I'm happy to be moving into more of a 'veteran' role on the team. We've got some great, younger talent on the team and I can't wait to see what the "Working Man's Race Team" can do in 2018. 

I grew up in the shadow of Mt. Seymour and still live there today. The steep, rugged slopes of Seymour are still my favourite place to ride and train. I love racing in the well-attended stage races in the US, despite my complete lack of time trailing ability. Most people know me by my pink handlebar tape and for being on Mt. Seymour at the crack of dawn! 

Result Highlights
I rode up Mt. Seymour every day. All year. That's just over a million vertical feet.

Profession: Physician

Item you could never leave for a ride without:
A detailed workout plan, and gloves, because road-rash-palms are more painful than bike racing.

I have been racing bikes in some capacity for over 15 years but it is only through racing with GSC in the last few years that I have started to understand organized training, and the need to repeatedly explore and embrace pain sensations.  My strengths include climbing, positioning, and technical grass and mud courses (aka cyclocross!)  With 3 young kids and an irregular schedule, my training must be time-efficient and high-yield.  Any successes in racing would not be possible without the ongoing support and encouragement of my lovely wife.

2017 yielded my best results yet thanks to the tremendous support of my teammates, my family, and this wonderful club.  For 2018, I am aiming for more success at the Masters level, providing support to my teammates in the Cat 1/2 races and for spreading the love of two wheels to my kids.
