Graham Ritchie had a history-making moment in his Olympic debut at Beijing 2022. He finished fifth in the men’s team sprint for Canada’s best ever Olympic result in the event in classic technique. Ritchie also raced in the individual sprint and the 4x10km relay. Ritchie competed at his first FIS World Championships in 2021 where he posted an impressive seventh-place finish in the team sprint. They were the only under-23 team in the final, which they knew made them underdogs but also that they had nothing to lose, giving them some extra fire. Ritchie was also part of Canada’s top-10 finish in the 4x10km relay. He went to the senior worlds fresh off competing at his third straight U23 World Championships. He had also competed at the World Junior Championships in 2018.
We are excited to have The Honest Heart Collective playing at our fundraising afterparty this year!
The Honest Heart Collective is a sill emblazoned with captivating shapes and sounds: the space between a promise and pain. Rooted in Thunder Bay, Canada, they build earnest and urgent songs with the tools they’ve gathered over time. Their music roars like the electricity of a rock show in the 60’s colliding head on with melody driven, dirt stained indie and revivalist emo. They exist at the intersection of old and new, exploring the spirited cracks between. Tickets are $10 and are available at the gate or can be purchased at Rollin Thunder, 3 Ride and Fresh Air.
