Gracey is at the front of a new generation of young female riders who blur the boundary between race and freeride, keen to enter the Whistler Whip-off. It may not be the best jump for the task, but this is where it all started. The crowd is massive, and the bar is set high. To be able to hang out here and the World Cup course is a special feat, especially for someone so young. Success has an odd way about it. Sometimes it’s hard to recognize until after its passed you by, and sometimes you can see it from miles away, but for someone who’s stuck right in the middle climbing up to the top it just feels like a good time. This isn’t the beginning, or the end for Gracey, but she is well on her track to the top, wherever that may be.
