Woot woot, an amazing night under the Whistler stars at the Crankworx Rockshox Pumptrack Challenge!
Big crowds, big screen and big track, meant an epic nights racing under the floodlights in the Olympic Park.
Fast and frenetic, pump and flow, manuals and popping…this event had it all. Brosnan, Ropelato, Fairclough, Soderstrom, Cody Johnson were all looking rapid from the get go. Soderstrom keeping the crowd entertained with tailwhips and barspins over the finish line double. Johnson rode fast and smooth all night for bronze. Good to see Troy Brosnan back on a bike and pinning it again! Perhaps too fast as he washed out on the final inside berm, handing the advantage to the man in the white suit, Mitch Ropelato who well deserved the win win his rocketship speed!
Micaylo Gatto and Jill Kintner went head to head in the final with Jill taking the win for the second year in a row.
