by 0

The French dominated the Rockshox Pump Track Challenge this year, with both the top spot in the men and women’s category being taken by French riders.

You can’t go wrong with a bit of pump track action. Catch the replay of the full pump track challenge below.

Men’s Gold Medal Run

It feels different each time. Last year I finished second, and this year first. It’s been a long time since I finished on the top step so, it’s perfect. To race against friends – it’s perfect. It’s nice to share a good moment with friends, especially on a good track with good conditions.

Crankworx also hosted an under 17 event, the CWNEXT (Crankworx’s next-gen category). They reported that RockShox Trek Race Team’s Tegan Cruz (CAN), who grew up racing in Kidsworx at Crankworx Whistler, earned his first Crankworx win outside of his home festival.

“I loved my time racing today,” said Cruz. “I had lots of fun, and I’m super happy to be back racing! Big thanks to everyone at Crankworx. One down and two to go!” The next CWNEXT event will be the Dual Slalom on Saturday, and the deuter Downhill Innsbruck presented by Raiffeisen Club on Sunday.
