A BC boy with biking in his blood. Tristan has the drive to get things done. Stylish and smooth Tristan can hold his own on a DS course, techy XC and of course pinning DH laps in the Park. If you had to sum up Tristan in a word – “Work ethic” wait that’s two words but you get the picture.

"You are surprisingly nimble for a large man!" was a quote once used to describe Pete’s athletic prowess. Bikes do what Pete wants when he wants it and that is evident by the whips he cracks and the transfer lines he sees where no one else does. Always humble and humorous, Pete is an icon of the Bike Park Trail Crew. The brains and brawn behind the Crankworx DS course each year, that test of bike handling manhood comes straight from his twisted mind.

Lula is a result of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park’s Woman’s Wednesday program. What started as a dabble in downhill soon became a passion and Lula stepped up to the Phat Wednesday race league mixing it up with the pros on the podiums each week. The hook set in deep and Lula has progressed to racing BC Cups and freeriding the Park almost daily. This first woman on the Team Lula is more than capable of mixing it up with these boys because she knows there’s no woman’s T in MTB.

Berg and his alter ego “Mad Dog” are the doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park Team. Seemingly mild mannered, Trev becomes the mad dog when the sun goes down or when placed behind the handlebars of a pushbike. This kid is a smiling assassin of style, his tables and whips on the Canadian Open and A-Line tombstones wouldn’t go unnoticed, even if he wasn’t wearing a white tuxedo while doing them.

While James has literally been the poster boy for the Whistler Mountain Bike Park on a few occasions, it is his stealth that makes him sensational. There are lots of kids that grow up in Whistler but not all of them sweep podiums on skis, bikes or both. James is a quiet achiever, a capable patroller and incredible athlete. Think Clark Kent on a bike with his cape tucked in unless he needs it to save the day.
