The Sunshine Coaster DH – Where Did The Rat Go?

0

The Sunshine Coaster DH, formerly known as the Rat Race is a great little event in Roberts Creek BC. This is a 40min ferry ride north of Vancouver on the Sunshine Coast. I decided to head over to the event to participate in the DH race portion of the event. Not usually a DH kinda racer but what the hell right? To keep it a little closer to home I rode my 5″ travel All Mountain bike.

A 5″ travel All Mountain Bike is not necessarily the best choice for a DH race but being relatively flat and mellow I figured I would give it a try. Didn’t set any land speed records on this one but settled into a respectable 5th place in the field of 38. I was pretty stoked. Next year we’ll shoot for podium.

Given that I was racing, it was not the most convenient event to take photos at but I managed to get a few after my run. I also have a gopro practice run from a few days prior.

Enjoy.

Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival

1

Whistler’s Kokanee Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival is the largest cycling event in North America. Spanning over the course of 9 Days there are more than a dozen different races and competitions wowing the crowds. I had the privilege of spending 7 days in Whistler this year during the festival and took a few photos over the course of the week.  The event is huge and is definitely worth watching. Next year, if you have a few days to spare head on up to Whistler and take in some of the action.
