“I definitely like to smash stuff.” — George Brannigan

The Canadian Open Downhill at Crankworx Whistler is arguably the most prestigious downhill race in the world, outside of the World Cup or World Championships, and those races don’t have the infamous Heckler’s Rock. The average time of Stevie Smith’s four winning race runs is 2:51.6 — there’s really no chance to make up time if you get anything wrong on this track.

This isn’t your average course preview. This is 60 seconds of Commencal Vallnord rider George Brannigan charging a few favorite sections of the Canadian Open course, with a style he describes as all out, but not over the edge.

“I get a bit ragged at times, but that’s just how I ride.”
