By:  Team XC Ottawa   (2010/07/19)

The start was a 5 minute ride from Karl and Megan's house. Here, Karl and Gavin arrive home, ready for the next phase of the training camp to begin.

Karl's happy to be done, and is treating himself to a YOP.

Required equipment: Mountain bike, bike helmets, rollerskis, running shoes, watermelon.
