The Garbanzo Downhill is a 3,400 foot arm-pumping, finger-cramping, unrelenting descent from the top of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park to the valley bottom. The course snakes through some of the most challenging and aggressive terrain available in Whistler. This year Steve Smith was the fastest man down the 12 and a half minute long course, while Trek’s Justin Leov managed an impressive fourth, even with a broken gear cable.
