Crankworx is a great event for the Santa Cruz Syndicate athletes to regroup mid-season to race and play together. Santa Cruz sponsored rider, Bobby McMullen has joined the Syndicate for the week and has been thoroughly entertained so far by the characters in the house. He can't see them, as he is legally blind, but he sure can laugh at their stories. The Crankworx competitions have brought this crew together this week and they all rode the mountain today.Kirt Voreis had a blast playing in the dirt jump park this morning, then on A-line in the afternoon. Jamie Goldman was just back on the bike for some casual runs as he is just coming off of a back injury sustained after Colorado Crankworx. And the gang is really missing Steve Peat, as he is not in attendance here due to dislocating his foot last week.
Today was downhill practice for the A-line downhill race which is tomorrow. Bobby was guided by Syndicate mechanic, Doug Hatfield, for a few morning runs. After lunch, Nathan Rennie guided Bobby for a few practice runs. After his practice runs with Rennie he said, " We unleashed the hounds a few times on that run! I even caught backside on some of the jumps!"
Bobby is very excited to race tomorrow, and Doug will be his guide. www.santacruzmtb.com
