When we rolled into Grandfalls the temperature was dropping rapidly and we knew that we were in for a cold night… needless to say “cold night” translated into “meat freezer” within the confines of the insulated trailer. The morning dedication was for Michael Leiter who passed away from Hepatocellular Carcinoma (Liver Cancer) in 2006, son of fellow National Rider Mike Leiter

NKCR day 15 – Grand Falls to Fredericton. Frosty start to the day (literally, the grass was all covered in frost) – but the sunshine warmed it up as the day went on, and had some beauty views over the river, crossing the world's longest covered bridge, and up a long hill into Fredericton! Also, when there's no ice left for the ankle, you improvise!

When I look at Mike I see a warrior… someone who is a bit battle scarred, but throws himself into the fray with the passion he displayed today regardless of the physical toll… some days are good, some not but that’s ok because it’s not about the mileage but about the cause… would you rather go into battle with a pretty boy who has no heart or into battle with a veteran who will lay it all on the line… I choose the later, and I’m honoured to have met him and ride with him.
