A new beginning...

Happy New Year! I'm becoming fond to my new beginning in the Ottawa Valley and the winter is not stopping me from riding. My newly acquired turbo trainer is a great riding partner helping me with my fitness during the long cold winter months here. A review is upcoming.

The new cycling season is looming over the horizon and with so many transfers it's difficult to keep track of. One rider I'm wishing for a good season or to reclaim some of his former classic glory is Philippe Gilbert. The Belgian champion is seeking a new beginning with Quick Step and will no doubt give muscle power to a formidable classic squad including Tom Boonen, Julian Alaphilippe, Dan Martin and Niki Terpstra.
