Fat Tire Criterium
Brian Lopes of Laguna Beach, CA, who is the “winningest” athlete in the history of Kokanee Crankworx, sustained his legacy with another first place finish. Kevin Calhoun of North Vancouver, BC came in second, with local Whistlerite Matt Ryan coming in third.
On the ladies side it was all about the British Columbians with Katherine Short of Halfmoon Bay coming in first, Ann Yew of North Vancouver, BC in second and Megan Rose of Squamish, BC finishing third. Will Lopes continue his winning ways at Crankworx 2012?

Sam Blenkinsop en route to collecting a $2500 CDN check for his efforts on the day; I'm guessing team drinks were on Blenki afterwards.
