Whistler Bike Park Trails: Multi-stage race throughout the Whistler Valley and Whistler Mountain Bike Park

Staying the course and laying it all out on the dirt alongside friends and legends is the order of the day in enduro racing. Racers must make their way to the top of each stage, then clock their best time across multiple descents. Fastest overall time takes the day. And while the course changes every year, the Whistler event always lives up to its notoriety. The trails selected for this multi-stage race will reward the generalist over the specialist, while showcasing the best of Whistler’s rooty, coastal rainforest and the challenging scree steeps of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
