WHISTLER, BC – Crankworx has announced that one of the most beloved parts of the Canadian Open Downhill, cheering and jeering from a spot known as Hecklers Rock at Whistler Mountain BIke Park, will not be allowed to continue in 2017. While no official reason has been cited, riders speculate that the increasingly rowdy nature of the "party on the rock" has recently grown to the point of interfering in the race, causing Whistler's new owner, Vail Resorts, to nix the tradition for safety's sake. Crankworx offers the following farewell tribute.
