Crazy Canuck

Quick history lesson here:  I the term “Crazy Canuck,” was first coined by journalist Serge Lang after witnessing a spectacular run by Canadian Dave Irwin at Wengen, Switzerland, on 9 January 1976.  Irwin plus his three teammates, Ken Read, Steve Podborski and Dave Murray, had garnered attention and notoriety in the mid-1970s for not only their success on the international downhill skiing circuit but also for their all-out, aggressive and daring approach to racing.   

The term "Crazy Canuck" is now part of mainstream culture and maybe all of us have earned it once in a while.  Embrace your inner crazy and spread the word:  Crazy Canuck spirit is alive and well and has infiltrated the cycling & triathlon world.
