Vancouver, B.C. - Race Face Components Inc., one of North America's leading producers of high performance mountain bike components and clothing, is proud to announce that the company has signed on as an official sponsor of the Whistler Mountain Mountain Bike Park for the 2002 and 2003 seasons. Race Face was previously a sponsor for the 2001 season.

"We're very pleased to sign on once again as an official sponsor of the Whistler Mountain MTB Park," said Craig Pollack, President of Race Face. "Whistler Mountain is a first class, world renown resort and they have done an amazing job over the last few years building up their MTB Park. The park is totally fun to ride in. They have been able to incorporate some of the "North Shore" type of riding that the Vancouver area is known for as well as a new breed of trails that are part single track, part BMX and part ski and snowboard terrain park. Even local riders are totally pumped to ride the Park."

The growing popularity of the Park is evidenced by the fact that rider visits have increased by more than 50% in each of the last two years. The Park attracted more than 30,000 rider visits during the summer of 2001. According to the Park's Managing Director, Rob McSkimming, "As long as visits to the Park continue to increase we will keep expanding the park. At this point we are only using a fraction of the 7,000 acres of terrain and 25 lifts we have available."

The plans for the Park's future are awesome and will continue to aid in establishing Whistler as one of the preeminent destination places to ride along with other classics such as Moab. For the summer of 2002, lift capacity will more than double by providing bike access to the Fitzsimmons Chair. As well, several new trails will be developed designed to appeal to a broad spectrum of the market.

McSkimming adds, "We consider Race Face to be a perfect partner for the Park - two B.C. based companies committed to providing unforgettable mountain biking experiences. The opportunities of working together are exciting."
