Abbotsford Triathlon Club continues to grow in every way imaginable. We also find creative ways to try and keep triathlon a little more affordable for everybody. Allen Fossheim (kneeling, left, white ATC cap) built not only the new Dynamic Events podiums (or is that podii?), but he also created a bike mount on his mini-Toyota truck that brought 8 or more of the bikes over to Westwood Lake Triathlon in Nanaimo. Vince Dimanno and Kristina Paule drove their family van over with 6 other athletes. Many of us rented “Quads” at Vancouver Island University dorms and had a chance to get our social side activated before racing. Sharing driving, ferry fee, sleeping accommodation and even finding creative ways for our members and friends to get there when they could and get back home when they had to.
