Whistler mountain biker Mhairi Smart with her new ride in 2023.

Phat Wednesdays are back at Whistler Blackcomb and as usual, locals are making their mark. 

Mhairi Smart emerged on top during May 31's season-opening race for females aged 10 to 16, clocking in at three minutes, 49.69 seconds. In doing so, she edged out fellow Whistlerite Cami Bragg, who finished second (3:50.95). Caileigh Koppang rounded out the top three in an all-Canadian field (3:55.38).

Smart is no stranger to the Phat Wednesdays series. The young rider earned five podium finishes, including one victory and four runner-ups, on the local circuit in 2022.

Meanwhile, the Sea to Sky's Anthony Shelly pulled through for gold in the boys' age 14 to 16 competition (3:30.79). Noah White from Australia claimed silver (3:33.19) ahead of another homegrown product, Cole Gautrey with bronze (3:38.06).
