Crankworx 2013: Dual Speed & Style Practice
The first day of Crankworx 2013 is finally underway and whilst the World Enduro riders go about their practice for their own moment of glory, the slopestyle riders descended on the Boneyard, their own hunting ground to practice for the first freeride orientated event of Crankworx, the Dual Speed & Style.
