Crankworx 2013: Joyride First Practice
First practice for the signature event for Crankworx got under way yesterday under the mid-afternoon sun in Whistler. With a slight breeze crossing the Boneyard, riders were dropping in on this year's new and inspiring course design, which has a much greater dirt-jump influenced feel over last year's course. Some riders were finding it easier to get into the flow than others, but that's to be expected as everyone takes progression differently. For some, it was a walk in the park, whilst for others it was their first time in Canada, let alone the Boneyard.
