Alain "Joe" Jodoin
Continuing our series on meeting the One Aim team, our next post is on the man, the myth, the legend:
Alain was a new rider to One Aim last year, having been um… recruited by Mike Beauchamp to join the Ride. It’s been said of Joe that he can literally be convinced to do anything, which makes him a great husband, friend, co-worker, and team mate.
Alain’s unique “chicken nugget” training regime is the envy of all his friends and co-workers, leading to his mastery of running events: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJEdX72uhlE
Here is some more information about Alain straight from the man himself:
Tell us about yourself Alain?
I’m a furious collector of “husband points” and a devoted follower of anything sports related: Hockey, Tennis, Golf, Baseball, Flag Football.... and especially Cycling since I joined One Aim.
Other hobbies include "sampling" craft beers at my favorite pubs and spending great family time with my wife and 2 kids (sappy I know but I really need some more husband points).
How many times have you done the RTCC?
2016 will be my 2nd RTCC.
We want to meet you Alain Jodoin, where might we find you?
You can find me on Tuesday and Saturday rides with One Aim. If I’m not there, then check the pub!
What kind of bike do you ride?
I got a fantastic deal on a Red & White Cannondale Synapse... Came with 2 brand new rims, tire repair kit and a One Aim "service warranty" of free tire pressure adjustments before every ride :) Thanks Mike Beauchamp!
People call you Joe, but are there any other nicknames people have for you?
There are definitely a few, but nicknames I can share:
Joe - That's right my real name isn't Joe! Got it when I moved to Calgary... "Jo-doin"
The Big Cat - My nickname out East In Montreal!
Peacekeeper Joe - From the guy ski trips days. I was more of a diplomat and signed many ceasefire treaties.
Is it true that you’ve worked with Mike for almost 4 years, and for 2 of those he actually thought your name WAS “Joe”?
Yes, that guy is no good with names at all. He had to keep coming to my desk because he couldn’t figure out how to email me.
Do you have a Favorite Movie?
Yes, infact I do, it’s Happy Gilmore!
