Whistler's Kokanee Crankworx 2011 was one to be remembered. We're proud to present this edit from our time there. We arrived one week early to get some riding in on the mountain before all the madness. We grabbed a few shots of R-Dog killing it and spent some time filming with Mike Montgomery shredding DH laps and practicing for Crankworx at the Camp of Champions Compound. Then we captured all the Slopestyle action from this year's Teva Best Trick and Red Bull Joyride events. Check it out!

Check out some of the photos we snapped. :

Whipping it

R-Dogg absolutely destroys it on his DH bike. We were able to get a few laps in to get some banger video clips and snap some photos. Mission successful!

Getting Steezy

Getting Steezy! Above: R-Dogg throwing down on Heart of Darkness! Below: Throwing the shoulder buzzer on the big bike over Tombstone!

Killing it on Tombstone

Filming the week before Crankworx.

Filming DH laps with Montgomery! Mike kills it on the big bike!

Flip Indianair whip at the Camp of Champs airbag.

Mike getting some practice on the airbag at Camp of Champions. Here he throws the sickest Flip whip Indian air ever!

Flipwhip during Best Trick had the lead for a while but lost it to zinks frontflip.

During best trick, Anthony sent the cleanest flip whip to take the lead! Then Zink came through and took it away with a front flip!

Front Flip for the win during Best Trick

We didn't snap any photos during finals, we kept glued to video! Hope you enjoyed!

 actually i think i somewhat agree with stinkykieran, it wouldnt be "that" hard, because 1. it is a hip. 2. unturndowns are really easy. so while i dont think itd be hard to unturndown a dh bike on that jump, i do think his style is sick and to pull it with such steeze is where it gets hard
  • + 1
 I will agree with leon-forfar.. Its not that hard to buzz on a bigger bike, especially when you have a good hip to do it on.. its making it look good that it hard.. I can buzz on my Allmountain bike.. that doesnt mean it looks good because mine look like shit compaired to any decent dirt jumper out there..

 I don't see any pics of Stinky doing shoulder buzzers in his profile.........strange........

 hes right.not that hard
  • + 1
 it might not be hard after practice but i tried an unturndown on my DH bike thinking, 'that looks easy', and ended up doing a whip with the front wheel high and landed sideways so i would say it is pretty hard to do properly Smile

 WTF is an unturndown, looks like a big nasty table to me...

 what's the first song?

Edit: ok I found it, for the people who want to know: Wolfgang "gartner" (?) - Illmerica

an unturndown is a turndown without the bars turned down to the ground(wich is impossible on a DH fork anyway Smile )
very differnt from a table as the body position is straight on as apose to a table wich is kinda sidways on in the hips,also the legs are straight an not pulled up to the body as in a table,

erm that description would probably makes more sense on a bmx on a halfpipe Smile

 I get you, I'm still gonna call it a table though.

 1. I can unturndown, even on my Kona Stinky Deluxe. 2. Theres no photos on my profile cause I've not bothered getting any photos. 3. Its honestly not as difficult as people think. Granted it is tricky getting them as nice as in this vid, and props to that, but its a very similar technique to tables. If you can throw the front end about enough then its fairly simple, even on straight doubles.
