There is no question Marcelo Guitiérrez is the man of the moment at Crankworx Whistler where he pulled in a record fourth win in the Garbanzo DH Tuesday, even after snapping his chain. The epic downhill course, in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, boasts 1026 metres of vertical drop, or three times the 359 metres of descent of the other two downhill races for the 10-day, multi-disciplinary gravity fest—the Fox Air DH and Canadian Open DH presented by iXS.

Tides often turn for racers on Day 4 of the BC Bike Race as the arc of days dip to the finish and the trails begin to find a greater downhill trajectory. It’s the tired racers and the gravity motivated ones who begin to find the terrain more rewarding with bigger descents popping up on the daily course profiles.

It was probably the constant swing of the morning weather and the day with the longest mileage of the race that induced the most anxiety for riders on Day Three of the BC Bike Race, presented by Ryders Eyewear.
