Have you been lucky enough to ride the Whistler Bike Park? For most of us, it's a goal - or even just a dream - to visit the unofficial Mecca of lift-accessed riding and bang out non-stop laps all day, every day. At just over 7,000-feet, Whistler is home to more than one hundred trails when you include the upper Garbanzo section, from smooth flow lines to near-endless jumps to classic tech and everything in between. Of those trails, twenty-two come with a double black rating that signifies their ''Expert Only'' status, and there are just six ''Proline'' trails that Whistler says are even more difficult.
Want another new episode? Number 92 comes out tomorrow and sees Seb Stott, Mike Kazimer, James Smurthwaite, and myself arguing about bike weight. How much should a trail bike weigh? Can an enduro bike be too light? And Seb even brings some math to try and show how little bike weight matters in the grand scheme of things.
