This year I have been training hard with my wife in preparation for the 2015 Ironman Canada in Whistler BC,  A 4 km swim, 180 km bicycle, and a 42 km run in July.  This is to get me in shape for the next big rally the Desafio Ruta 40.

This race is part of a series of races that lead up to the big event in January 2016; the Dakar!  Earlier this year I raced the Rocky Mountain Rally in Utah.  This was an unsanctioned 3 day event that was a blast and a great start to the season.  The next big event is the Desafio Ruta 40.  For the event I thought I should upgrade my old stinky helmet, Madeleine approves!madeleine small


The best part of the Desafio is that I will be with Caballero Rally Services, and their top rider is David Casteu a French rider  who has placed highly in the Dakar.  There are also other top riders who will be announced shortly and I will be able to learn a ton from all of them.

The Desafio will challenge me throughout the 6 stages riding a KTM 450 RR rally.  I have never ridden this bike before but it is the best equipment for the job and I have the most experienced mentors so it should be amazing.  Keep watching the blog page for updates.  1147271x2000x1236_FFFFFF_M
