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.
A Line and Crabapple Hits
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.
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
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
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.CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE VOTING PAGE
