Captured: Canadian Open DH

Yeah I know I’m a bit late to the party with this one. Definitely a hardcore downhill fan favourite, the Canadian Open DH has become notorious as of late not for its rooty, steep course with large jumps and rock rolls but more for one particular spot where fans congregate known as Hecklers Rock. Directly underneath Fitzsimmons chair, no person is safe from ridicule and of course… “no shirts on the rock”. Oh yeah if you’re afraid of male nudity I suggest you don’t scroll down to the end of this post.
