#KSR - Stage 2: @antonvarabei lead a ferocious chase to position @kboorsma with the race favourites. Kyle rolled the dice and escaped in a two man break with C McPhaden (KOM winner) @lrcyclingteam on the early slopes of the first categorized #climb. A group of 8 riders including @tdfsunshine bridged up on the following descent. Ben was instrumental in motivating the breakaway to roll and our gap swelled to ~3:30 at the base of the final climb. Kyle through down a savage attack early and went clear for the final 6km, finishing 1:31 over second place. It's his first #victory since cat 4 - but he had full backing from the squad and we knew he could do it. Leaders jersey leaves @onlyridetoeat shoulders, but lands on Kyle's. @tdfsunshine seals the green jersey for @toronto_hustle. Tomorrow, @kboorsma will leave it all on the road to defend the GC in the TT. #6IXSQUAD #tilltheend #ferda

#KSR - Stage 1. @tdfsunshine attacks 5km into the race and rolls a two-man break w @lrcyclingteam for 110km - he grabbed all of the sprint points in the process. With the catch made about 8km from the finish, @toronto_hustle battled for position to line it up for the sprint. @onlyridetoeat surprised everyone with a late 3 man move that held off to the line - Yuri takes a beautiful win and stands atop the general classification. Both of our guys will wear leaders jerseys for tomorrow's mountain stage. #6IXSQUAD #tilltheend #ferda

Epic stage 1 at Killington stage race - @onlyridetoeat with a stage win and @tdfsunshine with the green jersey! 👊#6ixsquad #tiltheend #ferda

Quality nutrition is key to performing well on the bike. We do it simply with @endurance_tap - just Canadian maple syrup, ginger and sea salt. It's easy to digest, local 🍁, and tastes damn good! You'll see the red caps peaking out of our @jakroocanada jerseys👌#fuelsimply

ICYMI: This morning, we had the opportunity to chat w @mattgallowayto on @cbctoronto #MetroMorning about the @toronto_hustle project, living the semi-pro lifestyle, and growing the cycling community.
Segment starts at 17:49 (6 minute listen). #6IXSQUAD

We'll be on @cbctoronto #metromorning w @mattgallowayto today at 8:20 am to talk @giroditalia, training to race with the pros (while holding down a day job), and efforts to increase active transportation in the city! You can listen live here:

While the Steve Bauer Classic didn't go as planned for the Elite squad, with each race we learn about ourselves and each other - strengths, weaknesses and new team tactics. Looking forward to laying it all out at #Killingtonstagerace this weekend! Where are you riding/racing this weekend? #tilltheend #6ixsquad #ferda

We had a chance to sit down w @soigneurs to discuss the North American pro peloton, the #Toronto sports market, and growing the sport of #cycling. Your Monday Morning Read:

The Steve Bauer Classic is the one race on the O-Cup calendar where @graydonstaples and @nsimm22 race in the junior field (believe it or not, these beasts are only 17!). Right from the gun @toronto_hustle blew it up in the crosswinds forcing a decisive split. Our boys turned the screws on Effingham and rode the break for the next 90km. With 2 to go @graydonstaples road away from the group on the climb and solo'd in for the victory! @nsimm22 didn't want to wait around either and created separation to solo for second. So proud of these dedicated athletes. The future is bright. #nextgen #tiltheend #6ixsquad (scroll to see all the pics!)

We can't wait to drill it up Effingham! Your @toronto_hustle line up for the #SteveBauerClassic. Giddy Up! #6IXSQUAD #tilltheend

After several weeks on the road, we're very excited to be back racing with our friends in Ontario this weekend. Today's the last day to register for the Steve Bauer Classic - reg up and we'll see you on Saturday! #6IXSQUAD #tilltheend 📷 @mcmannphotography

In embarking on the #HOLDFAST webseries, our objective was to share the emotion, vulnerability and friendships that make the sport of cycling so special.
Each episode will provide a candid look at the preparation, trepidation, and elation that accompany racing.

Episode 1 shares our journey to @joemartinstagerace in Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA. When you have a bit of time, check it out, link in profile. (14 minute watch). #6IXSQUAD #tilltheend
