    Crankworx Freeride Festival Whistler

    This past weekend (actually, Thursday the 22nd - Sunday the 25th) was the Crankworx Freeride Mountain Bike Festival in Whistler, BC.

    <a href="https://partner.consumerreview.com/referer/move.asp?siteid=1&redir=https://www.crankworx.com/"><b>www.crankworx.com</b></a>

    I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Freeride Competition and Expo and to experience first-hand what Photo-John has been raving about since the Marzocchi product launch there 3 weeks ago.

    I have many, many photos to sort though, but here are a select few to show for now.

    Here is a shot of the Expo area near the bottom of the lifts. There was a huge announcing stage put up, and if you were lucky, you could catch some of the free swag that was being tossed to the crowd! There was also a concert stage with live rock bands playing. The crowds were huge!

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/546/102713exposhot1.jpg" width="800" height="575" border="0" alt="very crowded expo area">


    Here is a shot of a new bike that I personally got to test out for the weekend. I will be writing more details about the new Prophet from Cannondale soon.

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/501/102713green_prophet.jpg" width="662" height="598" border="0" alt="Green Cannondale Prophet">


    There was a great trials demo put on by the Baia Brothers. The kids are aged 7, 9, and 15 and our all quite skilled.

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/518/102713trialsdemo.jpg" width="800" height="662" border="0" alt="Trials Demo">


    Many, many thanks to Eric Stobin from Sportworks for the generous hospitality, transportation, accomodations, and trail guide! Eric even shared some of the Sportworks booth space with MTBR and allowed us to put up our banner and hand out flyers! Thanks so much Eric, it was fun! Here is a shot of the booth, with the <a href="https://www.sportworks.com/sthd.asp">New FreeRider DH hitch rack</a> made for 40 to 50 lb downhill/freeride bikes, with wider trays for tires as wide as 3".

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/546/102713sportworksmtbrbooth.jpg" width="800" height="614" border="0" alt="Gregg and Eric in the Sportworks/MTBR Booth!">


    During one of my runs, I spotted these two cubs and their mom hanging out by the Olympic Station.

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/521/102713bears.jpg" width="579" height="463" border="0" alt="Cubs and mom">


    Not part of the expo, but another great reason to go up to Whistler, is this trail, called "A River Runs Through It". It is very easy to get to from the Village, and is a very fun and challenging trail! Wish I had something like this as MY local trail! (If you ever ride this trail, be sure to use mosquito repellent.)

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/512/102713arrti.jpg" width="600" height="800" border="0" alt="A River Runs Through It">


    A big part of the Expo, this is the Dangerous Dan Flow Show. It included a huge drop and some of the most technically challenging stunts. Here is a shot of something that I've never seen before, this rider is riding across a short bridge made of chain links! Looked even more challenging, because not all the flow riders could clean it.

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/514/102713flow1.jpg" width="800" height="600" border="0" alt="Chain Ride">


    I have shots of riders hitting this drop, which I will post soon. This shot gives a good indication of just how high the drop really is.

    <img src="https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/514/102713flow2.jpg" width="600" height="800" border="0" alt="Hypin' the crowd!">


    By far the most popular event of the weekend, was the slopestyle competition on Saturday night. Huge crowds lined up to catch riders like Cedric Gracia, Timo Pritzel, Cameron McCaul, Richie Schley, Wade Simmons, and more...

    Here is a shot of Kyle Strait during his second run of the finals. More pics to come!

    It was great getting in a few runs with you Gregg! (Shame we couldn't have hooked up for a XC ride Sat. morning...)

    Thanks to the guys at the SRAM/Rock Shox trailer for rebuilding my fork Sunday morning (after it died Saturday night) allowing me to ride in the afternoon.

    Trust me ... it's Whistler. Those who've been there know what I mean.

    Kn.
    I used to be with it. Then, they changed what "it" is, and now what I'm with is no longer "it". And whatever "it" is, is strange and confusing.

    Hot chicks have hobbies too. Ya know. They just don't stand around being hot all day. When you ask a hot chick what she likes to do, she doesn't reply, "I like to stand around being really really rediculously good looking".

    Tony
    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Damn my friend is retarded. I showed him this picture, and he said it was photoshopped.

    THen i showed him some more pics, and he said she was gay for wearing a bikini

    EDIT OUT AIM NAME (11:28:21 PM): i still think the full body pad ones are both photoshopped
    And he said that after he saw other pictures of her on the bike.

    she's like anna kornikova (?) all looks, no performance. I mean if she is really a mountain bike racer how come I have never heard of her? If she races downhill where are her results? She is all glam no substance. I mean come on, those pictures on her website are not extreme. Most of that stuff is beginner stuff anyway. Marla would spank her across the board. Please. Sponsored to be hot maybe but not to be core.

    well hot damn. i was actually there for that. our group, TX4000, rolled into Whistler that Thursday. about 7 of us had dinner bought for us at Longhorn, which included 5 pitchers of some beer. then 4 of us partied it up that night. what a badass place.

    so badass that i stopped by there again on my way home, and slept in my truck for 4 days. thank god i knew where to get a free shower.
