Was up riding yesterday and it was my first exposure to Crankworx, wow, so many pros around. Was also a friend's first time ever in Whistler and needless to say she was blown away by the riding and whole experience. We got to see the EWS guys and some WC DH riders come through No Joke/Drop In Clinic at race speed, damn that was impressive. Yoann Barelli did a nice nose wheelie into Drop In Clinic right in front of us /fanboy.
Spent the day on a large Scott Gambler and wow, even my first run was faster than my (now extra tiny feeling) medium '12 Glory, I guess that's what +35mm reach and +80mm wheelbase will do. So yeah, need to buy a bigger bike ASAP. That Float X2 air shock is pretty damn sweet too.
Going to be up next Thurs-Sunday and can't wait. Will be mixing it up between watching events, park riding and valley trails. We are staying in Rainbow so I guess I should check out Howler.
Bikes are fun.
