Video: Racing the 7-Day BC Bike Race As A Couple

Nov 24, 2019

bigquotesStanding on a start line wasn't new for the dynamic duo of Syd & Macky. They race professionally and have started hundreds of races. But this one was different. They were standing on the line together. And would be racing together for seven days in a row.

It was the pair's first time racing in a duo category. While Syd & Macky love riding and training together, they were both a little apprehensive about what racing together would mean for their relationship. Would they continuously bicker for seven days? Would one of them feel resentful? How would they cope with the inevitable setbacks and struggles of multi-day XC racing?

Watch the video to see what the experience was like to find out if they kill each other or file for divorce! Just kidding. Racing together strengthened their relationship, was a ton of fun, and even landed on the podium.

 A great couple of kids and a very special couple indeed. They're one of my favorite YT Channels. Always look forward to getting home from work on Tuesdays & Fridays to see their latest. Their positive attitudes are infectious and they are "Cyclists" that enjoy all forms of riding & racing.

 I met Syd and Macky at the intersection of slim shady and tempelton in Sedona a couple years ago, you could not meet 2 nicer people.

 They have such amazingly positive attitudes. My coach friend likes to show their videos to his high school team.
