The Whistler Mountain Bike Park closed for the season last weekend after a very fun-filled weekend. The Whistler Huck Fest took place Thanksgiving weekend – organizer Paddy Kaye comments that they didn't actually host a 'huck' element to the weekend since most of Whistler's “hot-doggers” were competing at the Red Bull Rampage, also the same weekend.
Nine hundred riders showed up to ride on Saturday, (a record day for the park). Rob Cook and Brook Baker won the Max Vert Enduro, a three-hour downhill endurance event on Sunday hosted by WORCA. The Whistler premiere of Freewheel Burning sold out to an estimated five hundred viewers. Wade Simmons and Joyride Productions hosted the premiere. From West Coast Spin, October 21, 2002
