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
