I'm riding for Team Canada along with Matt Wareing and Patrice Glaude. Matt and I are both from Calgary. We're counting down the days until the event. The terrain and scenery in Southern Alberta and British Columbia are amazing and I have no doubt the organizers will put together some kick ass riding!

Early Sept is usually still pretty warm. I expect it will be 20c or so during the day and 10-15c over night...maybe a bit cooler in the mountains at night. You should be good with the temperature
