We return to Whistler for round seven of the Enduro World Series: the Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized. This year we will witness the return of "Crankzilla" the massive day that crushed souls and dreams two years ago. This is going to be a big day out, to say the least. There will be tears shed, bruises, and broken bikes. Many may not finish. To make matters more complicated, forest fires had made the general Whistler area a hot box, with poor air quality giving riders something else to worry about. Luckily, the weather patterns are changing and the rain is coming tonight which will help with air quality, but give the trails a nice new slickness that the riders have yet to witness. Tomorrow will be a true test of survival of the fittest, but for now, enjoy some dry and dusty practice shots.
