2022 pro winners: Mick Hannah (AUS) and Vaea Verbeeck (CAN)
Whistler Bike Park trails: A-Line

Air DH Location: Whistler Mountain Bike Park – Spectators with a bike and a Whistler Bike Park lift ticket can catch some of the action by riding down adjacent trails to view races. Spectators without a bike can catch the finish line in Skier’s Plaza. Kindly note that open alcohol is not permitted.

Arguably the most famous trail in the world, A-Line is the stuff of mountain bike legend and lore, renowned for its iconic drops, jumps on jumps on jumps, and giant, sculpted berms. On any given day, this is where party-trains reign supreme and where experienced riders flock to go big and take flight. But what’s it like to race? Since 2004, thousands have lined up at the start drop to find out for themselves, scrubbing, boosting and charging for the win.
