I came from germany, so the way was not shorter than yours and I brought my own bike!! I'll tell you: take your own bike! I had to pay 20€ extra for my bike, not that much. Put it in a bag or a 'bike-box' (don't know the right word I'm looking for)!!
And it's really great, 'cause you can put some of your other stuff you have (shoes, towels or whatever)!
It's really not a big deal. And to rent a bike in Whistler is expensive!
Just my opinion Wink
Oh and I bought a bike last week here, so when I'm going back to Germany next year, I have to take 2 bikes with me, doesn't make it easier =D

After watching the SS comp(and sneaking up to scope the jumps from on top of them) and seeing how big those things are... I'm starting to think they should scale them back a bit. A solid chunk of riders straight aired the judges booth gap. Semenuk and the claw both knocked themselves out of the comp on the final booter. Top places should go to the people who bust out the best tricks and have style, not to the few guys who can actually complete the course. That said, guys like mike still throw down HARD so maybe we just need better riders lol.
2 cents

I'm really glad that Cam Zink got first. He definitely deserved it!

Ya I had no idea that he could front flip, nevermind on one of the biggest airs of the course!

Anyone have any info on this? New Trek demo-look alike I saw yesterday.

trek must be joking, thats pretty much the FSR link right there, i was convinced they thought their floating pivot link was "the best"

I'm stoked that Groves got third, he was killin' it. This is definitelly going to get some media attention from that.

its not fsr. it still uses the floating shock i saw it. the rear triangle looks the same as a demo but it compresses the shock at both ends

its somthing like that, its not exact but it gives you the idea

i said it pretty much is the FSR the rear end looks similar. Doesn't look as good as the 09 session, that thing was sick
