I am very excited to announce that I am the newest member of the Multisport Canada/Recharge with Milk Ambassador Team for the 2014 season. This is a program set up by the guys at Multisport Canada that aims to increase exposure on both sides of the partnership with young, up-and-coming multisport athletes. I have recently taken it upon myself to become an advocate for duathlon in Ontario, trying to drive excitement for the “lesser” multisport and promote what has become a VERY competitive and tight group of athletes spread out across Ontario. Part of that is building moment for a new Ontario Duathlon website created by myself and Larry Bradley (still in its infancy at this writing), and any vehicle of promotion for that movement helps. The Ambassador Team for this season is a tad light on duathlon representation, so I am very glad I was about to work together with John Salt, Roger Hospedales, and the rest of the Multisport Canada crew to make this happen.
Most of all though, I am just happy to be able to be a part of creating excitement for the Multisport Canada/Recharge with Milk triathlon series. Since my very first MSC race at Cobourg in 2012, where John Salt personally shook my hand as I staggered across the finish line after completing my first international distance duathlon, I have felt no compulsion to look elsewhere for the bulk of my race schedule. The following two seasons, I have done everything I can to fit as many MSC races on my calendar. The organization is second to absolutely no one, the service level is unrivaled in endurance sports, the venues are fantastic, and the athlete focus is greatly appreciated by everyone I have talked to. Frankly, I have never heard a bad word.
Look for me at races this season! I will be in Welland, Woodstock, Toronto Island and Lakeside this season, and I love to talk shop. Meet the whole team here. Looking forward to the upcoming season!
