It’s no secret that Europeans see Whistler and the whole area of B.C., Canada as “The place to be” for Gravity Mountainbiking. Although we have wonderful places to ride in the European Alps and many other spots in Europe, thousands of riders travel to Canada every year to ride their Bikes in beautiful terrain and on professionally shaped trails. I guess for some of us Europeans it feels more like a life spirit than just a bike trip to go to Canada. Crankworx Whistler is one of my favorite events during the season because I enjoy the opportunity to ride and race so many different tracks and bikes in the laid back Canadian atmosphere for a whole 10 days. I had the opportunity to put in some extra riding days before and after Crankworx, so I went to a few more bike spots in B.C. and put together some nice photos and video material from my 2011 trip. Enjoy and see you on the trails in Whistler during Crankworx 2012.
