The second installment in the 5-part Whistler Mountain Bike Park’s Elements of Perfection video series is now live.
You are more than a mere part of the earth. You are the earth. You erupt from deep volcanic faults or collect in ancient processes. Upon impact, you give nothing, but you give everything through your existence. You are the beginning, middle and end of all trails. So thank you. Thank you for letting me ride all over you. Thank you for allowing my tires to leave their rubber fingerprint on you. For dictating the path of the trail: over, above and around. For allowing traction on dry days, and scary-but-fun sliding on soggy ones. For jagged, demanding descents and burly no-fall lines. For always being there. For never changing. Thank you for providing mental markers with your cracks and lines. For near vertical rollovers and wallrides and lips that never need reshaping. For giving birth to gravel and dirt. For bringing together others just like me to worship you in this kick-ass place. At once, you are everything to me, but just one small part of my favourite bike park in the world.

[ABOUT ELEMENTS OF PERFECTION] The perfect ride. It’s that slightly elusive and constantly changing state of nirvana that we all keep chasing. This year, we’ve decided to pay homage to some of those elements that come together here to make up that perfect ride. Dirt. Rock. Roots. Air. And a bit of Soul thrown in the mix to help it stick. Throughout the season, we’ll be launching a five-part video series that’ll showcase each element along with what some of the rippingest riders at Whistler are doing with them…
