Usually Crank It Up, a blue flow trail of the Whistler Bike Park is not on my list of go-to trails. I am more a Dirt Merchant, Aline kind of guy... But after riding it behind Karver, things are about to change.

Follow Karver and I on social media: and

Oh and if you prefer bigger jumps, bigger berms, check out my other video following local shredder and photographer Matthew Tongue:

 I like your style, Chris! Here’s the same nose wheelie / stoppie, at the same place, on the same trail, on my Intense (M1) with yellow Maguras (Gustav 10th anniversary) at Crankworx in 2017:

Last time I rode with you was at the Big Bear NORBA in 2000 when we were both on M1’s — I was hiking up to jump the rock garden (boosting off a rock lip) and then you scoped the same rock lip and starting hiking up as well. I hit it, you followed, and you stopped after to give me a high five...probably the highlight of my racing career to get high-fived by Kovarik (on the same day you destroyed all the other slalom racers by 1.5 seconds in qualifying, incredibly). And we were reportedly the only two riders to hit it all weekend. Thanks for the good times and the good memories. Hoping I can find you on the trail at Whistler would be a dream come true to ride with you again, 21-22 years on =)

 Cool story! Although I'm worried all this went to your head and if that day happens again, well good luck if you send that old rock lip!!

 I know I’ll get downvoted to oblivion for this. Skidding through the corners like that makes a mess of them in no time and then they are s$&t to ride

 Good thing people are paid to fix it. I'll skid and ride in the mud as much as I want at parks with paid staff.

 all of the trails near me are terrifying ultra steep tech. i would be stuck on the green and blue jumps riding terribly but the tech would be easy peasy lol
