10 days left to win the “Ride Giant. Ride Whistler” contest!
Wow, more than 50 awesome videos have been posted so far! Tons of great stuff rolling in for the “Ride Giant. Ride Whistler” video contest, it’s great to see all the different stories from different parts of the world.
If you’ve submitted your video already, best of luck. And if you haven’t, you still have 10 days to go. Go get cranking if you want to go to Crankworx!
There are too many awesome videos to narrow down the field—we’ll leave that to our expert judges in a few weeks—but here are a couple of examples that definitely capture the spirit of the contest:
We love how “chajcu” captures his ride life and shows us some super-sick trail riding in his world too! Great story there, definitely inspiring.
Another good example comes from “mxer83” in the Pacific Northwest of America. Makes us want to go ride those trails up there!
Remember, this contest is to win a sweet Giant Glory bike, along with that trip to Whistler, but that doesn’t mean you have to be riding a Giant bike in your video. Whatever trails you ride, and whatever bike you ride, show us your world—the people, places and things that make it matter—and you’re in.
