On your mark...get set...


On September 4th and 5th, 2009 mountain bikers will gather at the peak at Whistler Mountain, at Whistler Blackcomb resort in British Columbia and will descend more than 2,182m and a vertical of 1,530m in order to cross the finish line in the Whistler Village. All riders will need to sustain constant physical and mental effort in order to maintain control during the entire descent, which will take approximately 35 to 45 minutes for the fastest participants.

Red Bull Exodus is a mass start downhill race that will see 200 men and women starting simultaneously from the snow-capped peak, proceeding to fly down the mountain past the Roundhouse Lodge, entering the world-famous Whistler Mountain Bike Park at the top of the Garbanzo Express chairlift, before riding the Park’s giant slalom course and then finally crossing the finish line in the Whistler Village. Over the course of two days, participants will be challenged by bar-to-bar racing as they battle side-by-side, dealing with fatigues and navigating through dirt trails riddled with jumps, stunts, drops and root-strewn terrain.
