Phat Wednesdays are here!

Every summer WORCA (Whistler Off Road Cycling Association) hosts the “Phat Wednesday” race series held in the Whistler Bike Park and last week marked the first race of the year. This series brings together hundreds of downhill enthusiasts for some good racing and good times. In keeping with tradition, the first race was held on B-Line with close to 300 entrants- One of the largest turnouts!

Just this past week racers took to a slightly more technical descent down Angry Pirate, finishing up with Ho Chi Min. As always the night finished up with a few beverages and prize giveaways at the GLC. With a hectic race schedule already planned for the next couple months, I’m not sure how many races I’ll get to during July and August, but the $2 entry fee is always worth it!
