    Not sure if this fits into the "racing" thread or not, but anyway.

    Gs Trophy 2014 is comming up in september, 6th -14th exactly, it´s been held in Calgary (Alberta, as far as I know)

    Here´s a note: http://www.autoevolution.com/news/20...ada-71429.html

    I (costarrican) am representing the Latin-America Team, along with Camilo Patiño and Esteban Ferrer (Colombians both)

    Is any other qualifier rider for the GS Trophy over here????

    Regards to all

    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!

    Nice!!

    Glad to talk you Cory!! Since you are from Calgary, how´s the weather for september? Is it that cold?

    Im in team Latinamerica, and as you can guess, cold weather isn´t exactly our strongest, we´re preparing for 8C° to 18 C°... you think it´s OK?

    Regards,

    Alejandro

    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 :thumb
