The second stop of Crankworx is with us. Some poor weather meant that the Whip-Off competition from last night has been postponed until Friday, but slopestylers are getting practice in and tricks dialed ready for Sunday's grand finale. Our man in the middle of the action, Szymon Nieborak, beamed over these images of bikes from Jakub Vencl, Lukas Knopf and Peter Kaiser.

No need for a gyro when you have a spare meter or two of housing...
