The 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games have come and gone and although the snow keeps falling the opening day for the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is less than two months away.

The upcoming Bike Park season, which is scheduled to begin May 15, 2010, will be extra special for our staff and rental bike guests considering they’ll be rocking fresh new Maxxis Minion DH tires. Staff will be suited head to toe with Dakine’s incredible line of mountain bike apparel including jerseys, shorts, gloves, jackets and packs adding to the Bike Park’s long list of industry leading partners: Kona, SRAM, Marzocchi, Race Face, Hayes, WTB, Kokanee, Decline Magazine and Nintendo.
