2017 ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship

I won the 2017 ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship Elite title.  I dedicate this to all of the ladies in my 40+ age-category and beyond.  Your best races are not behind you -unless you are certain you have done everything possible to maximize your potential already.  Not everyone sees the potential they have and takes the opportunity.  I hope to continue demonstrating being in your 40s is an advantage, not an obstacle.

I am ITU Cross Triathlon World Champion for the second time.

After a perfect day at the Penticton ITU Multisport World Championship I took my fifth world title in off-road racing.  Mountain biking allowed me to become a professional athlete and triathlon gave me a viable career.  I have so much gratitude for everyone at XTERRA, the ITU, and all of the local off-road bike, run, and triathlon race organizers for supporting off-road racing.  Thank you!

Saris Superclamp EX Hitch Mount Bike Rack Review

Testing the Superclamp EX Hitch Mount Bike Rack

A hitch mount bike rack was on my wish list for a long time.  It took me five years to convince my partner that we needed one.  He drives the road tripping travel adventure machine with larger cargo space and snow tires. Without a bike rack, I was always complaining about disassembling wheels and seatposts and he would say: “Nature loves a vacuum.”  He did not want the rack as he figured the more space we had, the more I would fill with stuff.  But then came STEVIE!

Look mom, it's ME on the undies auntie @danellekabush gave you! #pugsofinstagram #puglife #cuteemergency #dogs

Travelling with our furbaby adds a new dimension to our adventures.  With the crate, doggie toys, and booster seat we no longer have room for our bikes in the car so it was serendipity that Saris asked us to test the Freedom series Superclamp EX 2-bike hitch mount bike rack this summer.   This is the review our first hitch mount bike rack🙌🙋🐶🚲🚲 Continue reading “Saris Superclamp EX Hitch Mount Bike Rack Review”
