This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to meet some of the great people of OGC/Opus, amazing athletes and numerous excited cyclists and wannabe cyclists at the Toronto International Bike Show. This was my first opportunity to meet Eric Mayeu, Marketing guru for OGC who has shown incredible belief in me and my skills as an Ambassador for OGC/Opus. There was also Vicki Schouten (unfortunately I don’t have a picture of her) but she is the extraordinary Social Media person that kept the world connected to the Opus action as it happened at the bike show.
Not only that, I was able to speak to Trevor Bodogh an amazing athlete that displayed his magnificent bike skills for 3 shows a day throughout the weekend. You can find many of his videos on YouTube and they are well worth watching.
The weekend was filled with a lot of fun experiences and it was awesome to see so many people psyched about Opus Bikes (not to mention me!) I couldn’t help but smile and take in the awesome energy that filled the show. I had the chance to have some pics taken by Vicki of my unbreakable smile as I stood beside the bikes I will have the pleasure of racing on for 2012. First pic is the incredibly fast “Fhast 1” 29’er mountain bike. A beautiful hardtail machine that rides with the comfort of a full suspension, but has the agility and speed of a gazelle and is unbelievably light.
Second is the Vivace…..well just look at the picture and drool….I did standing beside it. When I won’t be on my mountain bike, it will be this magnificent bike that will propel me down the roads with little effort and slice through the air like a stealth bomber.
A big thanks to everyone! What a great start to my Ambassador and Racer role for 2012.
