Video: Whistler Bike Park Opening Week with Jesse Melamed, Miranda Miller, Remi Gauvin, ALN & More

Jul 17, 2020

Sometimes they call it Christmas, but it's the middle of the summer and it's actually Whistler bike park opening week. The berms have been groomed 100 times each and there isn't a braking bump in sight. It really is a special time. It takes a lot of work to refresh the trails after the winter. Not only are they cleared of debris, but fresh dirt is added everywhere. I'm pretty sure I ride B-Line more times on opening day than I do all year, it's a full on magic carpet ride top-to-bottom. Thanks trail crew!

 Now just a big table and some corners to finish as you can see. There was too much bottleneck with the old glc drops.

 @JesseMelamed: was ALN on a DH bike? Also, more ALN please . Thanks for vids! I was also wondering who the tall person u were following was, as I did not recognize them, then see it’s Miranda! Dang she can ride!
Fanboy suggestion-
LAbel all the shredders your ripping with so we can geek out on them!
One more observation- Remi makes his Steeze look so effortless, yet I can always her u gasping for air, what gives?

 @enduro29erHack: But isn't it fun to try and guess who it is!? I'll try for the next one.
What point in the video are you referencing? If it was A-Line it's because I had a flat tire so I had to pedal extra hard to keep up.

 @andreaneln: where were u? Last time I saw you, I was screamin at you w a bullhorn and a WhiteClaw, as you blew the little climb out of Calderra in Bootleg! There are much more awkward things to blow but I was very impressed w your riding that weekend! Did u win that race? Also good luck this year(and next) II think you’ll be on the top of those podiums soon! If you ever come back to Bootleg, I’ll be waiting!!
