Top North American riders gathered in Whistler’s mountain bike Mecca July 22 at the Canada Cup Series # 4, final qualifying event for the World Championships. Recently crowned National Champions Marie-Hélène Prémont (Chateau-Richer, QC) and Geoff Kabush (Victoria, BC) won the event.

In the men's 5-laps race, Geoff Kabush of Victoria, BC, returned to racing after a concussion he suffered at Canadian Nationals last week (a race in which he successfully defending his national championship jersey). "I haven't ridden a mountain bike since my crash last week. I only did one lap yesterday. My ribs are still sore so I was a bit worried about the race. I wanted to keep it smooth. I didn't find the heat too bad. I think my time in New Mexico helped."
