Canadian Olympian I Professional Cyclist

For every athlete I watch competing in #Pyeongchang2018, I can't help but think of the countless selfless individuals who helped them get there. Parents, coaches, experts, community members... no athlete makes it to the Olympics on their own! . . Reflecting on my own journey that brought me to #Rio2016, I want to thank my parents for all their support! They made sport an important part of our family identity while growing up. Every sport was open to me, but XC skiing was the main one for our family. They both joined me for training sessions, and spent countless hours volunteering for team trips and races. My dad coached and built up the high performance team, benefitting other athletes in the community as well. Their endless support continued in so many ways when I added cycling to the equation and started competing year-round on skis and on my bike. Thanks Mom & Dad for all your support! #WeAllPlayforCanada #TeamCanada

See you later Girona! I had so much fun catching up with old friends and making new ones, exploring new roads and getting lost walking through the winding streets and ancient walls of the city. I didn't kiss the butt of the #lleonadegirona to ensure my return (as I believe this tradition presents a major public health concern! πŸ¦πŸ˜‚), but I will certainly return to the area again soon! ❀ . . . #girona #spain #puenteeiffel #cycling #howweliv #explore #adventureΒ #trainingcamp #costablanca #catalonia #cathedral #walkingthewalls #happinesswatts #outsideisfree #tourist #worldtraveller #creatingmemories #keepchallenging
