Whistler Bike Park Phat Wednesday - Race 5

Jul 7, 2016
by WhistlerMountain BikePark  
Welcome back! How are you? What have you been up to these past few weeks? If you have been riding the Bike Park, that sounds great and we are happy for you. If you haven't been, we miss you and want you to come back. After three weeks away from the circuit, the energy and stoke was at an all-time high in the Bike Park yesterday as riders prepped for the return of the prestigious Phat Wednesday series. The break provided an opportunity for riders to heal up, mend broken bikes and dial in lines on all of the trails the Whistler Mountain Bike Park has to offer.

As with every Phat Wednesday race season, the tracks get more challenging as the season goes on and this race was no exception. This week's track is an undeniable rider-favourite: Schleyer. Drops, jumps, tech, speed and more lines than you can shake a stick at; this is what riding in the Park is all about.

The good stuff.

One of the best sections of trail anywhere. Send the drop under the gondola then rail these two berms into some fast tech - damn it feels good to be a rider.
