Garbanzo DH

Photo Garbanzo Dh

A vertical marathon. The Garbanzo DH is a gruel-fest, a magnet for masochists, a 3400' top-to-bottom toll-taking test of mountain biking legitimacy. The unrelenting 7km descent requires sustained intensity, as riders match stamina, smoothness and strategy to stay on their game for one long lonely ride through 3 bioclimactic zones and shifting conditions, with only pain and the mountain's mood swings to accompany them. A killer link-up, the Garbanzo DH course snakes through some of the most aggressive terrain the Whistler Mountain Bike Park has. The Garbanzo DH is a leg-busting stand-up-and-pedal test-piece.

Six mountain bike athletes have been chosen to compete in the video contest and each has hand-picked their teams. Crews have seven weeks to create 4-6 minute videos to be screened in front of a live audience and an expert panel of judges at Whistler Olympic Plaza. $5000 is on the line for the first place video, $3000 for second place and $2000 for third.
