Check out the action from day one of Colorado Crankworx 2010. It turns out all the stunts work and the competition is going to be amazing.

Look inside for video and some pictures from today!

Riders tried out the course for their first time today. The action was awesome for being a "pre-practice". Check out some words directly from Casey Groves!

"Yo, its Casey Groves here, coming at you with a quick Day 1 update. Everything went super good today other then a few rider injuries. As far as the course goes.... It is working out really well, huge props to the builders for constructing a double dish stunt that works well! Top to bottom everything runs very good. This year the course is a few features short. Practice for most of the riders went well, with little complaints. As usual it started pouring rain but thankfully it was after practice. We will have to see what tomorrow has in hands for us as far as weather goes! Till then, get stoked!"

So there you have it! Now watch some of the action from today!

 Mike is on a hardtail again. Silly Mike, riding a hardtail off a 18 ft high, 22 ft gap, road gap. Course looks way better in video than it did in pics, but man, those whale tails still look SKETCH, and that finish double looks a little small...
