Quick sum: We had 3 riders finish in the top 10 of the Prologue, including Serghei Tvetcov in 3rd. Travis McCabe was in a bucket of breaks, was 2nd on Stage 4 and won the Points Classification for the 3rd year in a row. Keegan Swirbul was 3rd on the final stage and finished an excellent 8th overall. But that’s old news. Here’s what went on behind the scenes…

Here are some of the things the twins saw during the Tour of Utah:

PROJECTS

  1. Video Content with Icon / IFIT: It was great working with Icon to gather video content for their emergent IFIT training systems.
  2. Launching Garneau’s Custom / Team issue Hero Helmets on Stage 3. The helmets feature Garneau’s Spiderlock® Pro adjustment system and there’s an improved Tri-Glide PRO strap system to ensure a perfect fit. 22 vents kept us cool in the mountains of Utah heat. Insert ‘two thumbs up’ emoji here.
  3. Product Testing for MaximaUSA Racing Oils MaximaUSA and our mechanics have been working like chefs tweaking recipes to refine proven products and to take them to the next level.
  4. Trying out CQ-6 Hydrationreviews… Serghei Tvetcov “Love it!”; Jonny Clarke “Used it for the last 6 years. Dr Roshon helped design it. Good sh*t!!! Doesn’t give you bad guts.” Keegan Swirbul “That stuff is calm. Mellow. I love it.”

  5. Rebranded All Vehicles and Kit for a Worthy Brewing Company
  6. Created Vid content for RBAR Energy: Gord described how the interior of our Lexus NX300 race car is organized on race day, and the team’s favourite flavour of RBar.
  7. SPENT TIME WITH TEAMMATES & GOOD PEOPLE

8. Saw Incredible Vistas: Just go see Utah already. These teaser pics bask in mediocrity compared to the matrix of the real.
