Well arrived at Whistler at 7.30 Saturday evening......What a drive from Vancouver airport, loads of construction for the 2010 Winter Olympics....

So got to see arounf 15 final runs of Crankworx, was awesom, loads of riders fell in there last runs. The course was sick, especially seeign it today from the chairlift, focken huge jumps...

So met up with loads of the peeps off of mtbr, FM, EBX, Mintsauce, RDH, Armond, Jubliee etc, a cool bunch of guys, not a dud amongst them.... Had a catchuo and dinner last night, met up at 10AM this morning to go ride. This kiwi has only been waiting 15 years to ride here.

The place rocks, there is an awesome vibe here, bikes everywhere, was a total fun day, did more just sussing out trials etc. Did A line, B line, Karate Monkey, Devils Club, Freight Train, No Joke, Original Sin etc. Fantastic trails, loads of tech stuff, had a blast. Had one good off, thank you armour again, you saved the day....

Was cool to ride with these guys who know the trails, I did stuff that am sure I wouldnt have done on my own....

So looking forward to the week. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The peeps whom ride here all the time, you guys have it sussed. What as place to have on your doorstep.:thumbsup:

Just a few shots.

#1 - Final jump of the slopestyle
#2 - FM and Zane on the lift
#3 - EBX chilling

Too true. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Not sure of anything happening dh_rider, but am sure something will be going down. Seems to be always something happening though. I am a virgin to this place, but am loving it thus far...

I get into Van on Tue. The pics just make me want to get up to BC even quicker!
Dont drive to Whistler from Vancouver during traffic peaks. The drive is real slow with all the construction on the highway....

Hey Whafe, M and I are headed back up to Whistler tomorrow (Monday). Killer day at the Woodlot today... We need to hookup.
Err and Whafe.....

FM is camping in his van so he's got no internet, but he wanted me to let you guys know he'll be at the base tomorrow at 10 AM. I'll try to take a lunch run and get out there no later than 3.

FM and Zane are talking about doing an xc ride after work (Zane's working), so that might go down, but who knows.

Whafe, great riding with you bro. FM and I rode 'til about 7'ish. PM me your phone number so I can text you tomorrow. I'll put up pics tomorrow (my camera is in the car).

Cheers,
EB
