Rocky Mountain Trailer Stolen
The little freeride trailer was stolen from Rocky Mountain's factory on Annacis Island (Lower Mainland) at 5:45pm Wednesday Aug 24th. It's rather conspicuous, so if anyone has noticed it the last 24 hours, could they contact Crimestoppers at 604-669-8477 or Delta Police at 604-946-4411. Nothing was in it - just a pain in the butt and we really need the trailer for upcoming events.
Gord Fraser Cycling Camp 2005
Professional cyclist and three-time Olympian Gord Fraser will hold his first cycling camp this November 13th - 20th in Tucson, Arizona.
In addition to fully supported daily riding with Gord and his HealthNet teammate Scott Moninger this all-inclusive camp will feature Allen Lim of Powertap. Allen is hot off the Tour de France, where for the first time ever he and Powertap recorded and analyzed power data of top 9th place finisher Floyd Landis.
Daily rides will include instruction on technical skills and provide essential training tips that no avid cyclist can ride without. Ideal accommodations, catered meals, massage, and nightly presentations from Gord and other professionals will all be part of the package.
Tucson is a magnet for professional and amateur athletes in fall and winter. It is fast becoming a training mecca and supports both domestic and international pros, including riders from the T-mobile men's team.
Gord has created six days of riding in the picturesque landscapes of the Sonoran desert for intermediate to advanced level cyclists.

Some of Ontario's elite competitors that have been racing in other parts of Canada will be returning for this weekend's event. This event will certainly make for some great late season cross-country mountain bike racing.
The course for this weekend's Plastiglas Ontario Cup #6 will be totally different from the Canada Cup taking place at Hardwood in June. Not to disappoint riders, the notorious boneshaker will also be included in the race course. Sunday's cross-country events will test racers over distances ranging from 7 - 47 km.
