Living vicariously through Ed's experience in France

"After our afternoon session today I walked over to the outdoor track beside the indoor track Team Canada has made their home the past few days. This is the outdoor velodrome where one of the greatest races in the world finishes on. I didn't have much time to look around but what I did see was amazing. I was in awe doing 360 as I tried to soak it all in. I could feel the history. Hard to describe the feeling and hard not to contain my silly grin. After watching so many Paris-Roubaix ( The Hell of the North ) races on DVD while I trained over the years it really felt like I had been there before. I'm not sure what this experience is worth but it made another crazy hard day of training for the next World Cup in London seem worthwhile."paris 1paris 2

Scott Morrow

Scott Morrow is starting with the RealDeal team at our Gears location, and he is very excited to be a part of the team this Fall & Winter season. He loves riding and has participated in lots of different cycling events including a Triathlon, 2 Ironmans, mountain biking, cycolcross and of course road. He finds riding a great release and many of his closest friendships have been fostered through riding.

Favourites: Quote “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Music – Anything from the 80s

After riding snack – anything!!!

Cheat meat – Spaghetti

She has helped coach and manage the Provincial youth cycling team in Saskatchewan for a couple of years and has taken them to the Canada Summer Games in 2013.
