FINAL STOP OF THE DC HIT & RUN IN WHISTLER, BC - RECAP

March 28,2016

The final stop of the DC Hit & Run went down at Whistler Blackcomb last weekend. The course was steep with deep smooth bowl turns that had the 80+ competitors more managing their speed more than milking for speed. Rider’s ultimate goal was to get down the course as fast as they can while being judged on their style and trickery on the three placed features (40ft jump, rail section, and a mandatory 2 hit pipe run) where riders earned valuable points for time deductions.
