We headed to Canada with a few goals and we definitely got noticed. Throughout the week, we were interviewed, photographed, and videoed. Nearly everyone we met knew of us from Instagram, Facebook, or Rules of Endurance. Jeff and Wille made a few cameos on the daily video edits, too, so from a PR standpoint, the week was a success!
Here are some highlights:
Jeff's interview and a photo of Willie on Bike Magazine
Tim's photo on Pinkbike.com
Clips of us are in almost all the daily video edits, but this one of Wille in North Van' is one of our favorites. She's behind the Clif Bar logo at the beginning. It's fast... but so is she.
This trip was really about the riding. We logged nearly 30 hours that week. Some of it fast, some of it painfully slow through the roots and rocks, but still amazing any way you look at it. We were smashed and exhausted by the time we rolled into Whistler, but there was a part of us that wished there was another stage the next day.
