Part 3 of the 5-part “Elements of Perfection” video series from Whistler Bike Park.

You barely exist, yet you completely surround me. With a perfect mix of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 1% "miscellaneous" you deliver life to every corner of our planet. And when I put you between tire and Earth, you give life to my ride. So thank you. Thank you for letting me move through you and above you. Thank you for the weightless moments between lip and transition. Thank you for teaching me to relax during the rollover. To not fight, but to float in your presence. Thank you for the way you whistle in my ears on jacket-flapping descents. For the way you cool the sweat on my skin. And for the way you fuel my ragged lungs. Thank you for that unknown 1% that is so much more than miscellaneous. It's miraculous. For bringing together others just like me to worship you in this kick-ass place. At once, you are everything to me, but just one small part of my favorite bike park in the world.
