In Your Hands: Send Scott Athletes on a Whistler Filming Mission

In Your Hands

Scott Sports is giving the Pinkbike public control over what their riders get up to in Whistler. From Downhill racers to Freeriders, the whole team is there and ready to go out and ride only the best of what the Whistler paradise has to offer and film what you tell them to. Choose where each group should ride and wait until next week for them to release the videos, right here on Pinkbike. For those not familiar with the local riding, here's a quick guide so that you can match the riders to the type of riding you want to see from them.

In Your Hands

A Line and Crabapple Hits

Brendan Fairclough and Sven Martin at the Official Whip off Worlds Crankworx 2014 Whistler British Columbia Canada
The most famous jump lines in the world and probably the most popular areas of the Whistler bike park. Aline is famously raced each year during the Air DH and the Crabapple hits are home to the Whip-Off World Championships. If you're after tricks and steez, this is the location to pick.

Garbanzo Zone

Do not post
Gnarly, rocky, rooty. The Garbanzo zone is a tech aficionado's dream. You can still find some jumps if you look hard enough on Freight Train, the world's longest jump trail.

Ride Don't Slide

Halfway down the beautiful forest marathon
This is an old school tech trail that has seen a renaissance since Whistler Blackcomb's Peak Chair opened. What used to be a push uphill for 40 minutes is now regularly accessed by riders who will find some of the steepest riding in the park here. Some of the best chutes in the valley live here and many consider it to be one of the hardest trails in the world. Get loose or go home.

Top of the World / Kyber's Pass / Upper Babylon

Dan Atherton getting back on the horse on the Top of the World. Fourteenth for Affy on the day it s good to see him getting back to form.
If you haven't seen the Top of the Word Trail in the press you must have been asleep! This trail is home to the most stunning views of the Whistler area. The trail is highly exposed and loose with alpine rocks. Further down, Khyber's Pass sneaks into the tree line and hides loam, loam and more loam. Upper Babylon is old school - we mean really old school, with skinnies and quirky moves to the max and features one of the hardest rock rolls in all of B.C.

Micro Climate / Hey Bud

Before Micro Climate, there was Hey Bud - Blackcomb Mountain's favoured technical trail. Microclimate was built last year and starts further up the hill, but offers a slightly mellower grade for more flow and less death grip than Hey Bud. Still, the two compete for top spot amongst local's as their favourite trails.

 Gotta be Pescetto, Vink, and KJ on A-Line/Crabapple, getting all steezy and crazy FEST syle, Brendog and Vinny T shredding the Garbo gnar at mach speeds, and Paul B and KC Deane rippin some steeps and getting loose on Ride don't Slide. Man SCOTT has the most badass team of any manufacturer.

 Ride don't slide was cool because not many people rode it because of the push that meant it was still super loamy.

Having had this "renaissance" it sounds like one of its greatest traits will have been trashed. Someone tell me this isn't true.
