Xert

With the addition of the 100k route, P2A this year is going to pose some newer challenges to riders that are opting for the extended route.  Many riders come for the enjoyment and for the challenge of completing it, whereas others come to see how well they can do against the others in the field, perhaps looking to make the top 50, 100 or 200 in the field.

If you’re serious about training and preparing for P2A, for any of the race routes, you’ll want to be training with a power meter and you’ll want to be using Xert. Xert is sponsoring the race this year, and the Xert Breakthrough Training platform will be your go to system to help you be ready to do your best on race day.

The Bicycle Shop

You can get the same star treatment from this family run business at 228 Clarence Street. Established in 1969, Terry Dethridge is at the helm of the business he began while in high school. Since that that time the Bicycle shop has been a source of expert advice, quality products and unending support for thousands of riders. http://www.cbc.ca/player/Shows/Shows/The+Rick+Mercer+Report/Season+5/ID/1237360234/
