    Met Emily at the Canada cup last week. Shes an amazing person. She was busy doing somthing in the trailer and she heard my daughter ask " where is Emily ". With in seconds she was outside stepped under he canopy and came right outto hang out with my girl.

    I have to say I have never met such an unselfish "famous" person. She had a real conversation with her. Introduced her self and shook our hands (wife and me). Posed for a pic and we let her get back to what she was doing.

    My daughter saw here again when she arrived, the next day, got a big hug and smile.

    Upon winning her race, my daughter was at the finish line to give her a winning hug.

    It was awsome watching her ride. For the first 3 laps I was worried as she trailed in 2nd. But silly me. By next lap she had over a min lead, and it stretched from there on out.

    What was cool was after she crossed the finish line it looked as if she rode 5 miles. Didnt even seem out of breath.

    Shes a super down to earth girl. We would be very proud to have her represent our country.

    Use some bait!

    A good way of getting close to a celebrity is to use a bait. At last weekend's canadian championships, we chose to bring the dog to get access to Emily. Who could resist a tiny 3 pound chihuahua after all? Turns out Emily loves dogs, we had a hard time getting him back. Here is a pic of Emily with my wife and our very lucky dog, appropriately named Lucky!!!

    I hope everybody get's that I'm joking. Emily as got to be one of the most accessible professional athlete out there.

    Emily was selected to represent Canada in London (that is our olympic xc team above) so be sure to check her out. I think they've scheduled the womens for the second last day of the Olympics and men's is the last I believe.

    Plaxton was the biggest dick at the canadian championships. They had to call him 5 TIMES for the podium and he wasn't giving a damn and running errands. Most people left because it took him an extra 20 minutes to get there. On the 3rd call, he was chatting in front of the podium and I chose to leave for a course lap. 30 seconds later, he passed me in the tents area, still running errands and not caring about people waiting for him at the podium ceremony.

    Mega ****** if you ask me. He's far from having earned any respect that day. So I don't call him modest, more like he thinks he's better than the others.

    I meant more in the location of his hands covering his crotch sort of fashion (possibly covering his biggest dick ) - not so much on the behaviour side of things. He seemed to have a bit of a 'tude back in the days he was racing wirth Rocky before they let him go. I notice that when Rob Jones (CanadianCyclist.com) interviews him, he usually takes the microphone out of Rob's hand and isn't keen to give it back.

    Not to mention that this may the first photo evidence of someone wearing Lulu Lemon athletic wear actually being athletic instead of being merely trendy.

    It's shameful that Emily doesn't have a Wikipedia page. I'm sure highdell could put something together.

    The collarbone was broken good!!! I can't beleive how tough she is. When I cracked my collarbone it wasn't displaced at all, simply cracked and it hurt like hell.

    Still connected. Not good but not the worst. Good thing it wasn't worse or she wouldn't have been able to race. Too bad for her though. It looks like she might have done well this olympics.

    Oh gawd! Laughing very much right now...Just got back from Whistler and my first bike park experience. At the same time a Wanderlust convention was happening there, so thousands of women in their lululemon were walking around..

    You hit it to a "tee", btw...

    Maybe she'll add DH'ing to her Trek skillset. Seemed to work for Aaron Gwin as a good background.

    Sitting 2 tables away from Emily. Its awsome wayching her with people, she has a gift. I would hate being bothered but shes always smiling.

    She even waited in line like us normal people for her dinner tickets

    I would take a pic but she is eating.

    Summer gear, winter gear, mud or sun, but always a smile.
    She's a great image for any sponsor.

    I would drink so much of that bath water, I'd drown.

    I'd drink that bath water quicker than Jim Jones drank Kool-Aid.

    I have to say I have never met such an unselfish "famous" person. She had a real conversation with her. Introduced her self and shook our hands (wife and me). Posed for a pic and we let her get back to what she was doing.

    My daughter saw here again when she arrived, the next day, got a big hug and smile.

    Upon winning her race, my daughter was at the finish line to give her a winning hug.

    It was awsome watching her ride. For the first 3 laps I was worried as she trailed in 2nd. But silly me. By next lap she had over a min lead, and it stretched from there on out.

    What was cool was after she crossed the finish line it looked as if she rode 5 miles. Didnt even seem out of breath.

    Shes a super down to earth girl. We would be very proud to have her represent our country.











    I think I might love her a little bit.
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    That park looks more and more appealing as I look out the window and see nothing but rain, hail, and wind.
    At least, Phil said at Punxsutawney that spring was coming soon...

    Adorable kid!

    But, come on, she looks a bit ridiculous on that 29er. I mean, marketing is marketing and hype is hype but at what point does the sponsor say "Ok, that's enough!"

    She has to use a -25 deg stem on that thing! LOL.

    That said, she's delivering results, so whatever she's doing is working!

    She finished second to Lesley Paterson...who entered her first Pro XC race that day after running 6 miles before the race. Lesley is the world champ Xtrerra lady right now, so..

    Funny how Emily says (talking about Lesley) "I was riding with what's her name again...?"

    I guess Emily dropped her chain right before the finish line..

    Funny...when I was changing at my car, Emily rode past me with another Trek rider and they were like "Who is that girl with the World Champ stripes!?"

    You literally quoted the cycling dirt video. I guess if a person doesnt have time to watch it, they could just read your post.

    Yeh, it was funny to see that video and then think "No way...I actually heard her team mate say that!" I don't think anyone else heard it.

    It was the comment about "Who is that girl in the WC stripes!?"

    I laughed when I heard it and repeated the comment to my team mate. At the time, we had not seen Lesley (she never races pro mtb), so we didn't know who she was even talking about.

    Also, considering that I was there, odds are that my story will be similar to the other human who was there too filming the event...crazy right. Apologies for being lame and being at the same race as her.

    @Voodoo: Yes. They call me the Scottish Rocket. When I first read that, I was confused. Now it makes sense and made me laugh. Good one.

    I have the pleasure of training with Lesley when she is on her hard Mtn bike training regiments. The girl is legit. In the two years I have road with her she has vastly improved her bike handling and power on bursty climbs. Bonelli proved this. She started 18th and by the first lap she was with the leaders and soon after doing all the work and eventually dropping everyone but Emily. I was right where Emily dropped her chain and saw it all. It was not at the finish line. It was still with 1.5 laps to go. It was right where you come down to see the grass field and then make an off camber turn left to hit a fireroad climb back up. Emily shifted and dropped and Lesley went for it putting about 20 seconds on her and that was it. I was also at the finish line and don't recall Emily asking who she was but I did see Lea Davidson roll up and ask.
