Welcome to the new and improved www.clara-hughes.com! This reno has been a long time coming. I finally met the right person for the job. Back in December at the Specialized-lululemon training camp in California. There was this very friendly and cool-without-trying guy named Brad who stuck with me and Ina Teutenburg for all the epic, ridiculously long, unnecessary but oh-so-fun training rides. Brad Sheehan, I came to learn, was there to work on the team website. He’s also a new dad, with little time to ride back east. No matter the lack of miles he had no problem hanging with us girls on those long rides. Best part was he was loving it as much as we were.
Needless to say we had a lot of time to chat. After checking out his work online, I knew I found the right person to give my site new life and bring it up to the layout and speed of modern internet world.
It’s been a process of figuring out what to keep, what to ditch and what to add to make this site easy to navigate and interesting to explore.
I’m excited to add old content like journal archives, new things like Strava rides, a timeline as briefly as possible detailing 21 years in sport and much more. And soon, very soon, I’ll have each new journal en francais aussi. Bientot!
I hope you like the new site as much as I do.
