    Great account of what it’s like to race at that level – job as a journo once the pro cycling career is done?

    • Cheers mate. Who knows where I’ll end up once the cycling finishes!

      • You’re hired.

        • Wish I was on the bike…

          Great video, awesome words – painting pictures (vice vs jackhammer); Wade – great decision!

    I showed up at the Montreal race during that 30 or 45 minute period when it wasn’t raining, before the sky opened up in the last lap or two. That was a brutal downpour! I can’t imagine racing in that (and I raced in Holland for a couple of years and never had to experience anything like that!). Good thing the course had excellent road conditions (by Quebec standards), or else if would have been sketchy with all the potholes and cracks that litter most of the roads…

    • Yes, I thought it was going be dry there for a bit. But no, it was just loading up for an even stronger downpour! Yeah, that did help, as potholes were what caused my mechanical in Quebec!

    This is a shot I took at the top of Camillien-Houde, looks like you. Probably with 2 or 3 laps to go. https://flic.kr/p/yyRMjC
