Catch all the Crankworx action in Rotorua here.
Tracey, Mick and Alex were working hard all week to find the right lines under tough and changing conditions.The rain at the beginning of the week made the track super slippery. After a big crash on the first day of practice, Tracey could barely walk but she took well care of her ankle and was top shape on race day. She takes the win with a 6 second margin!
Mick has been pleasing the crowd all week with his agressive style an signature no hander. He did it once again during his race run and took the 2nd spot on the podium with a stacked field of regular world cup competitors. It’s good to see Mick fast on those slippery conditions.
As for Alex, couple hours before waking up on race day he got really sick and had no energy to hold onto the handlebars. It such a shame as he has been training hard all winter and we were very excited for this race.
The Spank Whip Off was held at night and made for a spectacular show. Alex was representing the team with his super stylish moto whips.
Fabien raced the pump track and made it to the 1/8 of final against Barry Nobles that finished 3rd.
Kenta is recovering well from his broken collarbone and has been supporting his teammates from the side of the track. He can’t wait to be back on the bike but for now trains on the turbo trainer.
While we were in Rotorua, Sam was at the crazy show Masters of Dirt throwing back flips and this week the official edit from DarkFest has been released, you can watch it here.
