After training hard all spring the team has been laying down excellent results so far this spring!
Everyone looks sharp on their 2014 Norco Aurums featuring the new Marzocchi 380 forks, and Moto rear shocks. Always decked out with the finest parts in the world thanks to Race Face.
Lotsa podiums our first time in the USA, and at the same time Team BC Dh riders swept the podium in Quebec. Props to C4 Team Rider Jack Almond for reaping our program at the Canada Cup. He ended up with a hard earned 2nd place in the Junior Expert category behind Jack Iles 2010 C4 team rider.
Til next time! Stay healthy and ride fast.
In typical C4 fashion it’s been an amazing week. Last weekend C4 riders did very well at the Coaster and we had Jack Almond winning the Junior category. As well our devo riders cleaned up in U17 with C4 taking 5 of the top 8 spots. Look for a post with pics soon! For now have a look at what the coach got up to! After winning the Cat Lake race last year I was a little bummed with 2nd, but man what a tough race!
Team bikes are dialed in and the guys are pumped on the spare parts kit and jerseys!
Hitting the moto track with the PerformX guys and Team On the Pipe. Best shop in Squamish.
A lovely pedal in Pemby with a black dog and a blonde girl!
Team BC riders mixing it up at C4 Saturday, followed by a Team BC Camp on Sunday!
Yes and then there were some more rooty trails on the sweet new KTM 300XC courtesy of No Limits Motorsports, the other best moto shop in Squamish. Coach has the new DH ready to go so look out 19th hole folks!
Til next week, keep brappin!
I definitely do not blog enough, but C4 is always up to something good so here we go for 2014!
So many great days this year with a great group and lots of excellent weather! New bikes are off the hook, and we have so many amazing sponsors as always. Norco Bikes, Marzocchi Suspension, Race Face Parts and Gear. Hayes Brakes, Sun Wheels, Kali Helmets!
New truck for 2014 and excited to get it stickered up soon…
Alex pinning it at training.
Hiking the course…
Ya and then my friend took my up in an airplane with no door and someone jumped out! See you next week.
This weekend was the first race of the season for Lee Jackson and I. We got to Port Angeles on thursday and went for a track walk we knew we were going to like the track from the moment on. Friday was the first day of practice everyone was loving the track getting loose and having tons of fun. Lee and I got a total of 7 laps in and we were feeling great.
Saturday practice rolls around and only the Lee and I could ride in the morning then Nick, Tyler, Remi, Holly, and Miranda had pro practice in the afternoon so while they were practicing we decided to do a final track walk to make sure everything was tip top. Both practice days went sick we all are having a great time.
Sunday race day…. All of us have a mandatory seating run in the morning before we race so hopefully that will take some of the nervs away for the race. Well wish us good luck we will update you guys after the race!
Thanks Norco for the sweet tents we are the best looking pit there!!!
Loving my Norco Aurum on the fast Port Angeles track!!!
Sexy clean bikes ready to race!!!
Have a good one!
Got the truck all packed up and ready to head off to the first race of the season stoked, Port Angeles here we come!!!
Had a little pit stop at Norco before we left. Nick needed to run a few errands so Lee and I got the tour!
We all will be sitting in that start gates listening to the beeps count us down for the first race of the season.
Nothing like a sick road gap to start off the track!
Scoping the lines!
Beautiful sun set after track talk.
We will keep you guys posted through out the weekend!!!
So after a month of pumptracking and getting to know each other, I took Kyle and Zack on a neighborhood tour. Checked out the BMX track, crossed a creek, went and told Harper jokes at OTP and goofed off in the mini sk8prk. Good kids and rippers!
Learning to manual BMX’s at the track!
Then over to OTP to drool over the new bikes…
Then Zack took me to his top secret pumptrack……shhhhh
Great day with the posse, Cole and Cooper will be back next week and we may even have a couple more joining us! Good times in Squamish!
Pretty pumped at the progress off the C4 athletes so far. Training is 8wks in and they are all looking fast on the new Aurums.
In 15 day my family and I will be head off to New Zealand for 4 weeks of sun and riding. We are meeting our good friends Remi and Devlin out there. We will be going all over New Zealand to places like; Rarotonga, Queenstown, Auckland, and the Cook Islands. We will get mostly be riding in areas in Queenstown. Nick and I both get to bring our DH bikes to shred and see their kind of riding terrain.
Nick left yesterday to Australia to meet up with his good buddy Matt. Nick will be meeting us in New Zealand on the 28th. The 4 weeks out there will be nice to get in the sun and get lots of training done for the up coming season, and being comfortable on the new bike. While we are out there Mark Bunyan is setting us up to hopefully ride with Justin Leov, Brook Macdonald, Cam Cole and some local pros which would be absolutely amazing opportunity.
I can’t wait to be in New Zealand riding my bike in the sun with my friends and mostly my brother because of how lucky I am to have him as a brother and I will always love him. Have fun is Australia Nick see you in New Zealand.
Thanks Zander Geddes
(ps. there will be updates while I am in NZ stay tuned)
