Pump Track - Crankworx Rotorua


Watch the LIVE action from the Crankworx crowd favourite RockShox Rotorua Pump Track Challenge presented by Torpedo7.

bigquotesThis is the ultimate stripped-down skill showcase of riding ability sees competitors duel back-to-back, without a single pedal stroke, on a course which demands one harness horizontal momentum to maximize speed, flow and flair.

Rolling into the 13-second rhythm battle, riders will coast through a series of turns into rollers to give themselves enough speed for a final a 220-degree berm leading to the finish straight. The top pros invited will hustle through a time trial elimination round to form the final field of 32 men and eight women. Both the top man and woman will earn $1500 cash.

 Micayla Gatto showing how presenting is done. What a difference to have somebody who has real knowledge of the sport as well as the personality.

 For her first time that was excellent. Bit of carefree style mixed with the biking knowledge is where its at.
  • + 1
 Yeah she got even more annoying as the events went on. Cringeworthy.
  • + 1
 @makripper: She cares about the racing not the ratings...quit cryin, that is the only thing Cringeworthy here.
  • + 1
 @rcrdrvr: she just cares about how cool she looks. not about adding anything of any value to the show. quit crying about thinking im crying. I'm enjoying the fanboyisms going on here. its the best!

 @makripper: I like everyone, announcers, slope kings, racers, free riders, everyone. She does NOT care about looks the most. She's a shredder, and an ambassador for the sport, not just women in the sport either. Quirky, funny and genuine...not the normal stale fish = awesome and fun to watch!

 Are they finally changing up the announce crew? No more Brad? Thank the gods! Cam and Bernard plus Micayla is solid. I hope they do all the events.

 6 comments? This is the fewest comments I've ever seen at the 12-hour mark for a Pinkbike article. I can't believe nobody has found anything to pick-a-side-and-be-a-dick-about. Not even that waki dude has anything to say. Pumptrack live streams: utterly inoffensive to all parties. Maybe my internet is broken.

 sshhhh, waki is sleeping

 Needles needs to call in and tell Cam and Bernard that the wiggle start is called "the slippery salmon"! Didn't they watch last year?
  • + 4
 It's a big step from making on the fly content at events to being a presenter in the live stream, at least with Micayla we get a depth of knowledge not just of the events but the competitors too. I thought she did great and each broadcast will iron out those little nerves were there today. Wink

 as entertaining pumptrack challeges are to watch, my favorite moment has got to be micayla going craig ferguson on lyle, priceless! awkward! cute! Pimp

 Yep, perfect. Also helping call out Bryn for Jill. Even the riders had a good time in the interviews.

 A mountain of drivetrain ads on top of a race with no drivetrain allowed. Just the best!

 Will this stream work equally well as the Dual Slalom stream - breaking right before semi finals?
  • + 2
 I'll second this. DVR was locking up, but LIVE worked. Semi's were about to start anyway, so I watched it from there instead of from the start. Could have been my connection all the same. But I usually don't have issues at all.
  • + 1
 @n1ck: Agreed, DVR locked up for me. Unfortunately, I never got the live stream to work.

 I guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow morning at work!
