Cheers to the 2019/2020 season 🍻! It was a long season with ups and downs but it’s all a part of process. Finishing 11th at World Championships and 11th in the World Cup standings I suppose shows some consistency but we’ll aim higher next year. The field is just getting tougher so we’ll work both smarter and harder to close the gap. Two more years. I want to thank my sponsors Mawer Investment Management, Aucerna, Saguaro and programs like HBC Strength in Stripes and Podium Alberta that allow me to do what do and represent Canada for the last ten years! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Time for the offseason!... after 8 more days of quarantine. 📸 - @neekeanna, @davehollandpics

What a Wednesday night - picked up 🥈 at @dezilverenbal! I won the event in 2016 and I’ve been trying to come back ever since, it didn’t disappoint. Came up short this time around but what an unbelievable atmosphere to race in. Congrats to @_vmmusha_ 🥇 & @mulderronald 🥉 - so much fun racing you boys in the Final! I want to thank everyone at @dezilverenbal for all the hard work they put into creating a skating event fun for both the skater and the fan. One last MASSIVE thank you to @hollandcasino for helping support my travel; I was incredibly honoured to wear your suit on race day. 📸: @neekeanna, @vincentriemersma, @kristianvaarvick

Reminiscing about ALL the epicness that was last year’s @lululemon Outdoor Classic! You would be hard pressed to find a more Canadian thing to participate in than a hockey tournament on a frozen lake in the mountains. So much fun and from the looks of things, this years was just as good. 📸: @mattkorinek, @radmencreative #thesweatlife

We were World Champions for 5 minutes. And then we weren’t. We were the better team today but unfortunately we were disqualified because of an “illegal exchange”. Rules are rules, nevertheless it’s still a tough pill to swallow. Super proud of how the boys skated today and couldn’t have asked for two better guys to take on the world with! @laurent_dubreuil & @antoinegbeaulieu, we left it all on the ice and we can honestly say it was good enough. Let’s get after the rest of the weekend! #schaatsen #speedskating #skating #mawer #aucerna @isuspeedskating @teamcanada @skatetecnl #worldspeed

What. A. Ride. The legend, @dennym16, retires. 4 Olympics medals, 69 World Cup medals, 11 World Championship medals and a couple World Records along the way... I don’t know, is that good 😅? From cheering you on at the Olympics in 2010 to skating side by side for the next 10 years, I still can’t believe I’ve been lucky enough to have called you a teammate, mentor, friend and brother. Through all the ups and downs, it’s been an absolute privilege to have seen your commitment, resilience and general awesomeness first hand - on ice and off. It is a retirement well deserved but by no means does that mean the #AdventuresOfDennyAndGilmore stop. Excited to see what’s next but know I got your back every step of the way. Much love my guy. ✋🏽💪🏽 📸: @bencehorvai

The #tbt of all throwbacks. The holiday season is a little crazy but finally got time to put together the highlights of the past 10 years. Through all the highs and lows, the 2010s were filled with so many great memories and I want to thank everyone that has made it so memorable. A journey that started with my first long track competition in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I’ve had the privilege to travel the world and represent the greatest country at multiple World Cups, World Championships and two Olympic Games. I’ve met so many amazing and inspiring people and experienced moments that will last a lifetime. There are 20 photos here but I could’ve put 100! Cheers to another memorable decade and many more adventures. 📸: @schaatsfotos, @tv45235, @davehollandpics, @ef.sportsfoto #newyear #memories #2020 #2020vision #schaatsen #speedskating #skating #mawer #aucerna #isu @teamcanada

Might get chirped but full disclosure, I left my razor at the hotel in Warsaw last week so I didn’t end #Movember as strong as I would’ve liked... but it was a great month rocking the moustache on the road nonetheless! A sincere thank you again to everyone that donated to this great cause. Joined up with some other greasy speed skaters and raised $4248 in the name of men’s health. Like I’ve said before, it was a little more personal this time around and it was awesome to get all the support. Until next year 👨🏾!

Look who got a new logo! Things are going to look a little different on the podium for us from here on in. #FasterForward with @ssc_pvc! I was fortunate enough to be a part of the group that provided @willcreativeinc with our identity as an organization. What they did with that turned out amazing! Excited to wear this logo around the world representing our speed skating community and Team Canada. 📸: @pieterstoffel

Family & hockey. 🔥 vs ✈️. #heritageclassic A little time off this weekend to spend time with my family before taking off in two weeks. The @nhljets are my dad’s favourite team and we got these tickets for him for his 71st birthday.

500m CANADIAN CHAMPION! The celebration and look of relief speaks to how much this race meant to me. It’s been 9 years competing against some great skaters and I was FINALLY able to get a win here. Shoutout to @laurent_dubreuil and @alexboisvertlacroix for some great races, these guys are legit and there is a lot to be excited about! Massive thank you to Mawer and Aucerna for their support leading into this moment. Proud to represent you guys when I step to the line. 🎥: @theolympicoval, 📸: @davehollandpics #schaatsen #speedskating #teamcanada #W

Very excited to finally unveil my 2019/2020 @descente_global 🇨🇦 skin suit! Not only am I proud to represent @ssc_pvc and the rest of Canada, but I’m honoured to be partnered with two great companies in Mawer and Aucerna. They have been great partners over the years and I’m so grateful for their continued support. This is all just in time for our Canadian Championships happening this Thursday at @theolympicoval. I race the 500m on Friday with races starting at 1:30 pm. I also race the 1000m on Saturday, 2:15 pm but, you know... 1000s. Come out, cheer loud and watch the best in Canada skate really, really, really, really fast! 📸: @nicolas_hiller #schaatsen #speedskating #skating

My favourite end-of-practice game to play growing up was Torpedo! Objective: Get from one end of the rink to the other without getting hit. Get hit, you’re out and you get to throw at the remaining skaters. It was agility, blade control, speed, body awareness but mostly it was just FUN! Thank you @yycspeed for having me out on the ice with the kids and giving me a chance to relive a bit of my childhood. These are the moments that remind me why I love the sport 😌
