This past week, Rona opened a new store in Collingwood, Ontario. Rona sponsors 100 Canadian Athletes through their "growing with our athletes" program. I'm pictured here with Rona president and CEO, Robert Dutton. It's incredible that the president of the company makes it out every store opening. It was a great opportunity to meet and say thanks to the good people of Rona.
The good folks up at the Creemore Brewery let my friends and I come up and tour their old fashion brewhouse this past Tuesday. Their slogan is "100 years behind the times", and they make my favourite beer. Pictured here left to right is Mark Oldershaw, Gabriel Beauschesne-Sevigny, Me (check my new Creemore Hockey Jersey! thanks cj), Scott Fisher, Scott Oldershaw, Adam Oldershaw, Craig Jobber and Brady Reardon.
Their beer is made from only 4 ingredients, with no preservatives. Everyone who drinks Creemore knows how great it is on tap, that's because Creemore delivers it's own beer fresh to every bar that carries it, and cleans the taps and draught lines every time a new keg is tapped.
A big thanks to Lily and Charlie at the Cedar Pond Bed & Breakfast and to everyone at the Creemore Brewery. We had a blast!
The Mazda Knockout was a huge success, thank you so much to Mazda, and all the athletes from around the world that came out to make our event so successful. I hope you enjoyed Canada, and are anxious to come back!
So after a nice break, it's almost time to get back in my K1 and train hard. I just bought a new Cervelo road bike which is ridiculously fast and an awesome way to get in some extra training... thanks to Cervelo and Gears Bike Shop for setting me up!
So check back here for updates and rants... and send me an email if you've got a question or comment!
