Last week I loaded up my truck at 4am (seriously) and pinned it to Tsawwassen to get on the 7am ferry and head to Victoria. Earth Odyssey was done their project in North Saanich early and I wanted to see it. A few important notes: Google Maps says it takes 2 hours and 15 minutes to get from my house in Whistler to the Tsawwassen terminal. This is a lie (or maybe just a mistake). They obviously did not take a 4am departure into consideration nor did they factor in the now shred-ready Sea To Sky highway. I got there in an hour and 40 minutes. Nailed it, which is great, since apparently everyone and their dog (or in this case, every motorcyclin’ baby boomer and his tiny laptop in his moto-pannier) is really pumped on the 7am ferry on Thursdays. It was 70% full when I got there (and full of elementary school children once I boarded). Phew.
Adam, Jordie and Gunner did a rad job on their pumptrack and the dual slalom. Adam is famous because he will be in the next Anthill movie and because he was in Roam (he’s also famous for not wanting to do any work except on bike trails and pumptracks). Jordie is famous in biking for a bunch of reasons (including the upcoming event in Victoria that’ll have jumps on a barge) and Gunner is famous for Ninja Cougar, 3 years of Crankworx dual slaloms and generally for throwing down fierce stink faces at random. Not sure if it’s open yet, but I got a sneak peek before they (literally) opened the gates. Here are some photos from our super high profile photo sesssssh.
