2009 Crankworx Garbanzo Downhill

We got into Whistler village on sunday night after a hectic rush from Bromont. Then spent the next few days riding, partying and keeping up to date with Bens “face Book arranged meets” before the first race came about. The weather had been dry as a bone for the past few weeks here in Whistler but there was all of a sudden rumors of the rain coming just in time for the elite mens start. The rain pretty much held off for the whole day with only a few damp patches on the track which didnt cause too may hairy moments.

Baltic pushed a run out with the big number 50 plate strapped to his bars, and came across the line with a time of 14:34:73 placing him in 17th place overall. The fastest time of the day was recorded by Kiwi Justin Leov at 13:44:55.

The next race for Ben is the canadian open next sunday so there is plenty of time to practice if the weather holds up.
