Great article about former THT coach and Provincial Coach Mike Garrigan. Mike is a 2 time Canadian National Cyclocross Champion, and a long time elite level mountain bike athlete on the Provincial and National stage. Mike started out racing at Hardwood, went on to coach for THT and then was hired as the Provincial coach. He is an amazing role model, a great coach and mentor for many athletes, and just a real down to earth guy who loves to ride his bike and help people have fun. As busy as Mike is with all of his projects he always keeps tabs on what is going on with Team Hardwood, and is always cheering for the athletes to do their best every time they get on their bikes.
Take a moment and read this article. It is really interesting to hear him talk about doing your best on the day, whether your first or 25th. Enjoy it, have fun and do your best no matter where you are!!
