This is my favorite warm up lap at the Whistler Bike Park, Crank It Up to C-More, to Heart of Darkness. It's fast, flowy, and has jumps to big enough to get you ready for A-Line.

Brett Tippie headed out with rippers Henry Fitzgerald, Magnus Manson and Dylan Forbes to show you riders who might not be too familiar with the park. Check out more on Pinkbike!

A few weeks ago, Vital MTB had the pleasure of joining up with Intense Cycles and Intense Factory Racing to investigate their new M29 Carbon downhill bike. Intense has been working with the idea of a 29-inch-wheeled DH bike since late 2009, but 29-inch-specific tires, forks and other crucial components were not up to the demands of downhill at the time. During the end of 2016, Jeff and his team knew that the next step forward in competitive World Cup downhill racing was the 29er and they began making the first prototypes for testing. Team riders Jack Moir, Dean Lucas and Charlie Harrison tested bikes in both 27.5 and 29-inch configurations, set up as identically as possible and unanimously the riders preferred the 29er. Intense debuted the prototype M29 at the Fort William World Cup in 2017 and Jack Moir earned a career best 2nd place finish on the hand-made machine. Throughout the season, the team tweaked and refined the aluminum prototype bike, knowing that a carbon bike was the ultimate goal. Jeff Steber, founder of Intense Cycles, stated his gratitude to the athletes for being willing to ride ever-changing hand-built prototype bikes during the competitive season. That decision could have been disastrous to their results, but with hard work from the entire team coupled with the riders' excitement for the 29-inch platform, success was the final outcome. Mid-2017, Jeff Steber showed up with a single carbon prototype M29 at Crankworx Whistler for Jack to race on for the rest of the season. Ultimately Jack took it to a 4th place finish at World Champs in Cairns, Australia. Fast-forward a few months and Jeff and the team have their pre-production bikes ready for the 2018 World Cup season. The bikes were so fresh that Jeff painted them by hand to get them prepped for the team training camp. During the training camp, while specifics weren't given, the team was fine tuning suspension setup and were experimenting with differing fork offset and trail configurations to accommodate the differing riding styles. The only bike geometry information we were given was a headangle of 63.5 degrees and a chainstay length of "somewhere around 18 inches." Jack Moir (AUS, rides size large), Dean Lucas (AUS, rides size medium) and Charlie Harrison (USA, rides size large) can be seen racing the new M29 all season long.

Blue Velvet is a blue flow trail located in the Garbanzo Zone of the Whistler Bike Park. It's filled with berms, jumps, and even some pretty unique wall ride features. It's also quite long, so if you need a good warm up run this will definitely do it! But, just be ready for sore hands as this trail does get filled with brakes bumps.
