Right after riding the 105km Défi VéloMag in the Parc de la Mauricie in Shawinigan (it's a tradition, it's my favorite place to ride, and there is no way that I would miss that event!) I packed up the Mazda5 team car and headed southbound, over 800 km, to Boston. My teammate Mary Zider did a primo job of organizing the details so we could rock it at the TD Mayor's Criterium.
We attacked, we chased, we strategically sat on, and we raked in the sprint primes. Juvéderm-Specialized-Mazda raced a very active, exciting, and successful final road race in 2011. We went in to the season the same way we're going out: hard, strong, and having a LOAD OF FUN!
After the race I jumped in a Mazda5 with my teammate Anne Guzman, and drove to Toronto. (I'm damn lucky that our team cars are Mazda5s. I've been doing a lot of driving in the past days...) I'll be spending a few days with my mom in Barrie, Ontario before heading back to La Belle Province. I went out riding on some of my "old favorite" roads today...and am looking forward to ride on a few more of these roads that are apparently mine "TO DISCOVER" (as the license plates say here...!)
