Video Recap of Cross on the Rock Kona Cup in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Super technical course, lots of turns, sand, stairs, on camber, off camber....you name it. RH sponsored cyclocross athlete, Oliver Evans took his 2nd consecutive COTR win on his Giant Bicycles TCX Advanced Pro 1. Super thanks to Norm and the crew for an epic race. #cotr2017 Back at it again at Qualicum Beach on Oct 22.

Cross on the Rock is with Normon Thibault.1 day ago
With my crew's support I (Normon Thibault) had the opportunity to "JUST RACE" today down at Tripleshot Cycling Club's Tripleshot CrossFondo. It is always a tough decision as I worked yesterday and need to try to "balance" family time etc. I was lucky enough to do almost the whole ride with Naked Bicycles Factory team rider, Emily Johnston. It was awesome to see how GREAT a rider Emily has become. More importantly my eyes were opened up to how much of a roll model she is to that part of that young-cyclist community. We had a great ride.

This is a GREAT event and Tripleshot Cycling Club does a first class job this it. As a bonus the course is SUPER fun and SUPER challenging. It is the Canadian version of Britain's Three Peaks. Or the West Coast version of Paris-Ancaster. Burly and tough. Put it on your calendar for next year and do yourself a favour.......ride it on a cx bike. That is the spirit of the event and doing it on a MTB.....well.....that is just not as fun!
