bigquotesThe chaos and energy of the Whistler village and bike park is something every mountain biker should experience, it is at the center of mountain bike culture. However, the best part of mountain biking for me and a lot of my friends happens when we are out in the hills and away from it all. During Crankworx, Max, Merin and I realized this and tried to capture it in a short video.Felix Burke

Some of the best berms in Whistler aren't found in the bike park, this quick trail on the west side of the valley is a (somewhat) hidden gem. It's perfect for all skill abilities and also not too far from the village.

While many of the other trails are blown out, this one has held up surprisingly well. There is something relaxing about the sound of tires ripping through a set of smooth berms.

Merin Pearce, an up-and-coming enduro racer from Vancouver Island was able to join for the photo session; unfortunately, he had to head back to work immediately after the Enduro World Series race and missed out on filming.

 Thanks, definitely a little bit shorter than what we wanted to do! Unfortunately we only had a few hours to film and I wasn't moving super fast since I was on crutches with an aircast. It's rad AF you still thought it was rad AF!

 The fact that you pulled off a 59-second edit for a piece of trail that takes approximately 12.6 seconds to ride is astounding!

 Great video. Amazing what WORCA and the RMOW do outside of the park that is missed by so many visitors. If you're in Whistler and ride trails, your WORCA membership shows you believe in giving back to your passion. If you're visiting, most shops sell really cool "Trail Passes" that say thank you to the trail fairies.

 You people are animals. The handful of times I've gone trail riding around Whistler I'm usually blown up before I even get on the trail.

 I rode that trail just last week and that was truly and awesome section. Sadly the rest, and most, of the trail is in serious disrepair and is a dog to ride. Most of the woodwork is rotten and unsafe. But great clip guys!
