In the drops and givin' her hell. Barelli might not have had the speed the other lads did, but he certainly has balls.
Mad Dog Boris takes a break from reality to demo the virtual form trackside.
Brown gives her bike a final check with the most important tool in the kit. Pressures were good.
Gone are the baby butt smooth berms of spring. Racing A-Line at this point in the season means battling braking bumps large enough to rattle your teeth out.
Martin Maes was out getting his DH on once again.
Adaptive bikes. So good to see people finding ways to keep shredding no matter what the obstacle.
Whistler is deceptively hot in the summer. Pre-race ritual for the A-Line DH on a sunny August day doesn't necessarily mean warming up on a trainer so much as it means hiding in whatever shade is available.
Mikey Haderer leading out the longest train on A-Line we've seen in a while. Good times.
Still feeling the effects of a massive effort in Sunday's EWS race, Anneke Berteen was a bit off form today finishing in 10th.
Anneke Beerten dodging holes through A-Lines blown out corners. As one of the most heavily ridden trails anywhere in the world, things always get a bit rough towards the end of summer.
4th place today for Manon Carpenter just two seconds from the podium.
Emilie Siegenthaler sending it.
With temps over 30 degrees, Phil Atwill decided it best to shed a few layers. It's a good thing this isn't a UCI race as he would have been DQ'd for wearing a skin suit.
More than an eyeful near the bottom of the track.
It's always good to see Chris Kovarik racing here in Whistler.
To give you an idea of how tight times were in the men's race, Connor Fearon would finish 6th only a scant 2.5 seconds back.
Tomas Slavic scrubs one of the many hip jumps found on A-Line.

Remi Thirion officially has a DNS; not sure why, but the Commencal rider was ripping hard in the lower section of the track.
Casey Brown took practice on her Remedy, and found herself under gunned. She swapped to the big bike for the race and took fifth.
Vaea Verbeeck wasn't seeded with the top Women for some reason and came down the track almost an hour before the live feed kicked in. She would finish third, but unfortunately, her stellar run wasn't seen by as many as it should have.
Tracey Hannah chose to race her DH bike which may have been a bit slow through the middle of the track, but was visibly faster in the rough bottom section.

Jill Kintner keeps it low through the lower jumps on her trail bike.
Once again Jill Kintner rules A-Line here in Whistler.
Finn Iles may not have been way up there in the standings, but he looked damn good out there.
Matt Walker took eighth today. Good to see the Kiwi is well on the mend.
Aussie DH legend Bryn Atkinson with a text book scrub. He may be retired but that doesn't mean Atkinson's lost a step: seventh place and a mere 2.58 seconds adrift.
Adam Brayton keeps her low and fast.
Because some things are worth seeing twice...
Mick Hannah said his trail bike was definitely faster overall, but that hitting the rough past corners was a bit sketchier than he would have liked. It seems like the gamble paid off though as Mick would end the day in 3rd.
Mick Hannah on pace once again in Air DH.
Mick Hannah has always done well in this event, winning in 2014 and making multiple podium appearances over the year. 3rd today makes Mick a happy man.
Harry Heath over the final GLC drop en route to 2nd.
Harry Heath continues to make the most of what might be his final Crankworx to take 2nd.
Bas Van Steenbergen on the way to notching a W for the A-Line race.
How hard was Bas pushing today? The look on his face while squashing some of the biggest jumps on track should answer your question.
What a day for Bas Van Steenbergen who took a career best finish at Crankworx by winning today's Air DH.
A few newcomers and some Air DH podium regulars get the after party started in Whistler.
