Mt Seymour

Still recovering from the Holiday Party-athon! But here's a roll of film I just got back with the just-giver guys who biked up mount Seymour. As you can see in the photos it was cold, minus 8, and a much longer climb then the other ski hills in the city! These guys should be well prepared by the time summer hits.

Training has started for this years Just-giver cycling tour across BC. I shot some photos last week of their training which included them riding up Cypress mtn  (Vancouver) in minus 5 conditions, these guys are dedicated. This years tour looks like it will be 10 days long, 1300km, and 7 out of the 10 days are with 8 major mountain accents! Stay tuned  for more photos or go to the web site for more details.

The delivery man just dropped off a few pre copies of our newest issue (104). On the cover is a great shot by Mikendo of Scott Decenzo doing a frontlip around a curved rail, with caps on it! Pretty dangerous , looking forward to seeing the footy on that one. Below is a few photos that I have inside this issue.
