Strolling through the Whistler Village, we happened upon the new Crankworx RockShox Ultimate Pump Track Challenge course. Kenny Smith and the boys were barbecuing and laying down some of the first laps just to make sure things worked well. So many options in those rhythms! The format looks to be head-to-head, slalom style, with riders starting on top of a platform and dropping in for an initial speed boost. Expect things to get way faster once the dirt gets packed a little more.
Who's your pick for this event? Think Mitch Pump-elato and Jill Kintner will take it for the third year in a row, or will new champs be crowned?
It all goes down on August 16th at 8pm in Olympic Plaza.
