F1 Driver Mark Webber and Champion Alpine Skier Erik Guay Mountain Bike Mount Rigaud

Mark Webber Takes a Break From Preparations During the F1 Stop in Montreal to Hit Some Trails Mountain Biking With World Champion Alpine Ski Racer, Erik Guay

MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - June 07, 2013) - Before competing this weekend in the Montreal Grand Prix, F1 driver Mark Weber decided to take advantage of his time off in the city. After meeting up with world champion alpine ski racer, Erik Guay, the two decided to take a break from the spotlight and hit the trails of Mount Rigaud.

About Mark Webber

Mark's first foray into F1 came soon after when he made his championship debut with Minardi in 2002, confidently scoring the team's first points in three years. It was this achievement that led him to the door of the newly rejuvenated Jaguar Racing team, where he proved to be a consistent runner as their lead driver for two years. However, it was after a move to the Red Bull Racing team that Webber took his first F1 win in the 2009 German Grand Prix, having already finished second in China, Turkey and Great Britain.

Since then, Mark has barely been off the podium. In 2012, he took first places at both the British and Monaco Grand Prix and continues his remarkable career in the current F1 season.

About Erik Guay

Erik Guay was born and raised on the east coast of Canada and entered in his first competitive ski event when he was 5 years old. A long time veteran of the Canadian National Team, Erik began training with a professional ski coach at the age of twelve. Since turning professional, Erik travels the world competing against the world's best skiers.

Often a regular on the podium, Erik's most recent victory landed him a first place in the Dowhnhill at the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships inside Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. Currently residing in Calgary, Alberta, this proud Canadian representative is the first Canadian man to win a crystal globe for a single discipline title since 1982.
