If you ever want to get inspired, a Trans Rockies event is the place to find it.
I made a quick trip to the camp, where cyclists were finishing day 3 of this epic 7 day mountain bike race. No doubt about it, this race is one of the toughest mountain bike events in the world. Those who show up untrained, underprepared or lacking in bike handling skills, usually don't make it to the finish line. This is my gorgeous friend Janka of Jasper. Janka has no cartilage in one knee ie. bone on bone and has limited vision in one eye. She rocks. She was tired when I found her, but determined to get 'er done. Go Janka!
