Race - Sep 20, 2019
The vertical profile is basically a set of sharks teeth running up and down for maximum vertical gain and loss. Taking place around the ski resort town of Whistler, I'm sure a few people will be hoping the ski lifts will be running to help them up and down these monstrous peaks.
