"PHAT Wednesdays" are back!

You know summer has officially begun when the  WhistlerBikePark PHAT Wednesday DH race series begins!  Each year is like a family reunion and with over 300 racers for the season opener, it was one of the biggest reunions yet!  Great to see lots of familiar faces and lots of new ones's especially awesome to see so many more women making it out to test their skills agains the clock!
Let the games begin!
As always the season kicks off with a race down #BLine and then the courses get progressively more challenging as the season goes.  This year I started the season off right with two back-to-back 2nd place finishes and tons of fun had!
The winnings...drinks om me!
Despite the series being a more fun, "beer league" style race series, there are no shortage of amazingly talented and fast racers in Whistler to pit oneself against.  These are great training races and the competitive spirit is certainly not lost...the best part is, following your race run, it's off to the #GLC to have a beverage and some laughs with fellow racers and friends.  Always a highlight to the week and something I think everyone should try!

Until next time!
