I phoned Adam at 1:30pm this afternoon, to find out how things are going for him as he prepares for his Sunday downhill mountain biking race at Mont Ste-Anne Québec. It’s supposed to be a world class facility. I’ve never been there myself. This morning, he had walked the course and he and his friend, V, were just about to go up the mountain on the ski lift with their bikes to begin practising the course in earnest for their race on Sunday. Adam is in the age 20-29 group, Elite class. The best he has ever finished is 2nd place, at the Québec Cup two years ago. The competition in these races is very fierce, so it is quite an accomplishment to finish on the podium!
Adam has about six biking chums with him this weekend. I know he will have a great time.
