Hi Jerome, the information in the Race Book regarding stage 1 was unclear / incorrect. A notice (below) was sent out earlier today to clarify. Let us know if you have any other questions.
STAGE 1 - RIDE DON'T SLIDE
Only the top portion of Stage 1 (Top of the World) is within the Whistler Bike Park boundaries . This is the only portion of Stage 1 which is open for riding before the official practice on Saturday. Ride Don't Slide is not within the Whistler Bike Park area boundaries and is therefore closed for riding.
As this information was not clear in the Race Book - there will be no repercussions for any racer who rode this trail earlier today before this notice was sent out.
All of the Stage 5 trails are also within the Park boundaries and open for riding .
