Riders new to its hallowed ground, keen to test their mettle. Repeat racers, hungry for more. Redemption-seekers, looking to take back what Mt7 took from them. And local shredders, stoked to get amongst the action and share their epic backyard with the best in the world. They all stood shoulder-to-shoulder at the top of the Mt7 in Golden, B.C., peering down the steep chute that would be the beginning of their 1200 vertical meter, 7.3 kilometer, 11 and a half minute+ race run.

Sadly, this “home base” event ground was not in its best condition. “Let’s rebuild this BMX Park.”
