Every Second Counts”, a phrase that people have used for many years. It can be used for many of life’s challenges. Bruce used it as a term of encouragement, particularly when giving his pep talks before races to us.

Bruce was a huge supporter of ours and we will never forget these words of encouragement. To honour Bruce and to always have his words with us, I asked him to write this phrase for me this past summer. I then took this to a tattoo artist in Penticton and had it permanently inked on my arm along with a bike....since Bruce’s other favourite phrase to say was “it’s all about the bike!
— Kaycee and Hunter Schroeder
