I Often get asked why the heart on my hand? . my easy answer is: when ever it gets hard, I look down and I see my hands, it reminds me that I love what I’m doing, or I’m doing it for what and whom I love ❤️ . it’s even more so when I’m doing efforts.... and I stair at my hand eyes cross side 😵🤪 Aahah I mean, you’ve got to be loving it, EHEHE OTHERWISE... you’re totally psycho 🙈🤪 . #intervalday #gottoloveit #procycling 👌🏼 @hardyccphotos

Cycling over seas is definitely a huge challenge when it comes to friends and family at home! It’s such a fun and fulfilling life but also it’s heartbreaking when you think about all of the important life events you miss with the people you love the most!! Oh yesterday I was so happy to be able to attend @adrianeprovost and @insta_r.2 wedding and to see all my closest friends. I never get to see them, especially all together and it was very special! HUGE thanks to you two for the party, and CONGRATULATIONS, it’s funny to say because you two are one of the most incredible duo I know and to see how much love and care you have for each other still after 6 beautiful years and for sure a lot more to come makes me really hopeful that despite all the hardships one can face during his life, with your best friend alongside, no challenge seems too dreadful. Maybe it’s a bit selfish of me, but ROB I’m so glad your job leads you to Barcelona because this means I’ll get to visit you two more often 😁 ahaha I leave it up to you to decide whether it’s a good or bad thing 🤷🏼‍♀️ Again congrats, thanks for the love, best of luck in all of your projects ! I freaken love you 😘 - Few thing I also realized yesterday: 1- quebecers throw the best party on earth, sorry to say, tested it! It’s so true ! you have to see for yourself 2- Dancing with my girls is the best thing in the world, if that could be a profession, i’d swap over to it in a second !! 3- You dont realize how much you miss you gals until they are all there and you feel like you’re 16 all over again! 4- add-up to point #1, not only Québec people, but my friends Throw the best parties! - JE VOUS AIMES TOUTES VRAIMENT FULL!! sérieux Adri c’était malade!!! Je te souhaite full d’amour de joie une tonne de beaux babes ! et n’importe quoi d’autre que tu veux!! 😍😍😍😍 Anyway the connaissant tu niaisera pas avec la poque pour t’arranger d’obtenir ce que tu souhaite!! Awaille sti!!! 😅

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA 🇺🇸 - Today I realized that in the last 3-4 years at least I’ve been spending the 4th of july in the US and today wasn’t any different , but I never planned it that way ! I found out what day we where when I was stopped on my ride by some village parade in Vermont, and I remembered: OH YAA ITS THE 4th!!!! 🎆 - AINT THAT FUNNY?? Anyhow, to all my USA friends !! happy 4th, do the all, good partying and stuff !! - BTW vermont is cool for riding !!! even if their maple sirup isn’t as good as ours, they good neighbors 😘👌🏼⛰⛰

Urdhva Padmasana - Turning things around - We put a lot of emphasis on our physical training, workout - nutrition - recovery - etc. - This week, more than ever I came to realize how important it is to also take care about the mental. Visualization - Meditation - Something to remind myself of, how can we practice :time in “the zone” outside of a racing/training set up. To automize it and make it easier to turn up and down when ever needed! - practicing poses can be for me a good way to focus on only one thing and make this an automatic, meditating on the practice and learning to a knowledge thoughts and let go of them has always had great affects on the quality of my training and living in general! - In times of anxiety or depression I like to reinforce it and reintroduce more yoga and mental strengthening in my routine 🌸☺️💫 - takes a little bit of time in the day but helps to set me up in the best mood possible to get through the day 🙌🏻

7th in the #canroadchamps road race yesterday! It was te best I could do, I felt really strong in the climbs!! 😅 wasn’t much of a climb at the finish tho😜 Racing in champs alone is always a challenge! I tried to attack and make opportunities for me to take it, attacking at 15 k to go i really believed but in the end other single riders decided to help chase and i was brought back 😢 Still tried after but in the end it came down to a sprint for me ! STILL if i where not to win i’m so happy @karolanncanuel finally got her title 😍😍😘 this made up for everything ! very well deserved!

I am not going to line up with my girls this time for the next race but I’m still overly excited to start out here in my home province for the #canroadchamps - Let’s the battle begin! it’s this afternoon at 14:30 EDT, 20:30 GMT - 🇨🇦🔥🔥 - Also Huge good luck to all my @wnt_rotor teammates for their own road races ! 😍👸 #ridefightwin #builttolast #teamcuttingtools

Always fun to tag along the “Louis’s lunch World championships” Obviously the only man missing in the selfi is the king himself but 🤷🏼‍♀️ Still want to give a special thanks to this guy @louisgarneaulg1 for the help and support! what a great example of a man whom had a passion for the sport and turned it into an entire world of opportunities !! - next time will make sure to get the win at the Saint-Augustin town sign 😏 - also thanks to all the @garneau guys for the fast ride 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

1- FIRST, some for you 😊 2- Some for me 😋 3- how is it? 🤨 4- EHH ITS GOOD COFFEE 🤪🤩 - Rest day are for exploring coffee shops around the globe ! I’m excited for what today brings :) BUT with @bucheronpourlavie around is like michelin stars, you know it will be flawless 👌🏼🔥
