Watch ROOTS: The 4th Whistler Bike Park Elements Video

Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 5, 2011 10:55 am

Whistler’s new five-part video series called, ELEMENTS OF PERFECTION, has their fourth video installment up and ready for viewing. The series showcase each element along with some of the riders ripping through Whistler in the park. This video’s installment? ROOTS.

Whistler defines their ROOTS as: “You are the veins of the forest. You grip the ground with gnarled fingers and lay wooden foundation for tall trees and the trails that snake between them. Within you, the lifeblood of the timber flows. Without you, the woods and the singletrack they host would fall. So thank you. Thank you for letting me ride all over you. Thank you for unpredictable descents and tire-gripping climbs. For teaching me to brake with subtlety, to stay fluid in movement. Thank you for weaving your unique puzzle across the face of the trail. Thank you for the challenge of navigating your lines, and for providing footholds when I can’t. Thank you for building this grand temple of fir and cedar. For fiber, water and foliage. For natural surfaces. For wild textures. For keeping mountain biking true to its past. For bringing together others just like me to worship you in this kick-ass place. At once, you are everything to me, but just one small part of my favourite bike park in the world.”
