Riding clean and fast on showcase trails with friends and legends is the order of the day in enduro racing. 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 trails and challenging scree steeps of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. The SRAM Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized is Round 6 of the Enduro World Series.
Total route distance is 70km with 4,117m climb, but this includes chair lifts.
Creekside Gondola = 644m UP 5.16 km distance X 2 Garbo + Peak chairs = 1145m UP 12.01 km distance
So recalculated route course totals: Distance: 47.67 km Climbing: 1,684 m
Lots of trees down (need chainsaw) on the trail near where Bare Back connects. I only rode the lower section of Crazy Train, but would assume from the quantity of big trees on the trail on the lower part that the upper part would have lots of trees down too.
Muni tree clearing done and brilliant all the way from Function to LOTS entrance. Muni has also installed a temp crossing over Sproat Creek and has equipment in place for bridge replacement - large footings, gabion bags, and a small excavator. I'm guessing a new bridge will be in within the week.
