Whistler the Vink way
Nico Vink takes Whistler to pieces finding new lines and options to keep himself amused
I love these kind of videos where a rider and filmer interpret a well known riding spot in a new way. Here Nico Vink takes Whistler to pieces finding new lines and options to keep himself amused (rather like a certain Eliot Jackson).
Have you ever wondered what Whistler, BC looks like in the summer? Well, you aren't going to find out in this video because Nico Vink is riding so damn fast most of it is just a blur. During last summer's Crankworx, Nico took couple days to film some of his best lines around the Whistler bike park trails. From riding technical trails in the upper part of the mountain to take massive whips on the Crabapple hits jumps, he rode the area with a style and panache that few mortals can equal. Holy Toledo, this kid moves! It's not exactly surprising that this series is a sort of return from the grave for Vink - anyone who habitually rides through the woods at these kinds of speeds is naturally going to use up a few lives in pursuit of the finest trails. Let's just hope he survives long enough to finish the series.
