Box Jumps and Air Squats right after one another aren’t easy on the legs! “There are some nice lookin’ calves in the group.”

You don't often see this many teenagers work this hard in the gym without taking multiple selfies. Everybody did an awesome job! "We work hard today so we can have fun tomorrow."

January 24th: C4+Team BC Riders shuttle Cypress mountain.

After a tough day of fitness testing, the riders headed to Cypress Mountain the next day to do some laps! The weather complied again, and didn’t dump too much rain and snow on them. Even if it did pour, that’s ok. The Shore is meant to be ridden wet. One about Cypress is, there are no easy trails. “Warm up trail? There are no ‘warm up’ trails on cypress, they’re all gnarly!.”

A huge thanks to the parents who drove trucks up and down the mountain so we could have fun! “Is this how you want people to see Team BC as? No! Get on your bike and pedal up the hill!”

During lunch, Cory brought up a great point. He may have been talking about training at the time, but it really applies to everything in life. “If you’re not 10 minutes early, you’re late.” Here is a link to a post that goes a little more in depth to what this means.
