The Whistler Bike Park is amazing right now. The trail crew's efforts and the lucky wave of warm weather have helped shape some unreal trail conditions. The dirt is tacky and there are some fresh sections of trail new for 2013 that scatter the lower mountain. Even in the pouring rain, Rupert and I had an awesome time shooting this video. Filming in the bike park is awesome because it’s easy to capture footage that's fast, flowy, and fun to watch. - Mark Matthews

 You know when you watch a video and you think to yourself "he doesn't look that fast or good , I think I could keep up with him for sure"

 I hope you all realize he's cheating. Whistler put down that wet tacky brown stuff on all their trails to make his tires stick to the ground. That's not fair.

 not really, he was just skidding and doing dumb tweeks. Im assuming he lives at whistler, so he should be able to ride a lot better. and he only threw 2 good whips.

 Mr.session, people like you are not worthy of watching such a steez filled video. In the future, please refrain from ever posting another comment.

 its not "steez" or any bit cool, its just a stereotypical whistler *ag that just skids, tweeks his bars while manualing every 10ft, and doesn't wear gloves. This is how you "slay whistler" www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1vl_2x6w5M

 Csb. He's on the front page, you're not.

 @sessionman123abc i couldn't help to notice that the rider in the second video wasn't wearing gloves, pulled some manuals, and skidded. sweet vid, though

 Yeah, Trestle is super fun, but which bike park in CO compares to Whistler? Don't get me wrong, the terrain here is endless, but really...CO over BC?

 Velcro dirt... but the tires are also made of the other side of velcro. It sounds like velcro scratching.

 Gah. My sarcasm recognized machine is all fucked up. I thought he was slamming BC because it was rainy in the video. The Internet wins again. For what it's worth I've toured Australia as well and love the country. My apologies. Whistlers nice. Nice people should come to whistler. Seems like half of Australia is already there anyway.

 spec has the ultimate freeride/slopestyle team at the moment with matthews, the claw, montgomery, genovese, soderstrom and of course coastal crew and what does it say - spec sells shitload of these demo bikes to give so many paychecks.

 First time seeing this kid ride. Impressive, he obviously has the speed, style and bike control. Good tune, sending deep like whis is meant to be ridden. So why speed the riding up? Hate when editors do that, ruins it for me..

 Very good, style for miles..... But and it's a big BUT, and I'm sure you'll shoot me down, I would. I just kinda wanted him to hit a jump straight, I love a good whip as much as the next man but that was just overload, almost like a nervous tick. Never mind, still makes me want to ride
