Crankworx Slopestyle Top To Bottom

..which is the Kokanee trailer. Riders will step up to the top of the blue trailer and have only a second or two before dropping off the opposite end: a 10 x 20 foot distance that should see some burly moves.

Next up is the Race Face quarter pipe. Keep your eyes peeled for 540's and flairs!

It may be pink, but there is nothing girly about the whale tail!

The whale tail step-up step-down was at the end of the course last year, but gets moved to a mid track position for 2010. Hidden beside the pink beast is the Mavic booter that may attract the big mountain riders, braaap!

The course splits briefly after the whale tale, with a choice of either a wooden kicker into the fruit bowl, or a big 'ol super booter for riders who want to leave the ground for an extended period of time.

The fruit bowl and mega booter lines converge again as the riders make their way towards the course's monster sized feature.

It will be interesting to see the rider's take on the Kona Ride The Mustache feature. Who will boost off the end and who will pull out a little street action from another angle?

Once you make it to the SRAM Catchers Mitt you're almost home free. This badass green step-up into a banked step-down will test both the riders creativity and courage.

 That's such a cool course, but all I heard that kid say was, "Uuuhhh like, uuuuhh fersure, like uuuhhh"

 The claw tweeted that the course was 'sub-par' and he wasn't impressed. Wonder how he's gonna do?

 it should finish with a 100ft drop into a foam pit and the riders have to cram as many tricks in as they can while they fall Big Grin lol

 Yeah some of the pro's don't seem too stoked on the course this year..

 I feel bad for Cam McCaul! That looks like a sick course to ride! I agree it looks like it will be harder to pull of banger tricks because there aren't really any regular jumps, however I think it just gives riders a chance to get more creative about the tricks they pull and where they pull them.

 that looks amazing!

 Anyone else get shivers down their spine when they saw the judges tower stunt? O-O

 Hip step down in a Slopestyle contest? It adds flow to trails and stuff...but I don't think it belongs in a SS contest, makes it hard to trick...Which could be the point...I like the course though, maybe take out one of the weird features for a normal double though. That ender sender looks like top speed death if you crash.

 nah only 2 pedal strokes from starting after last feature...

 SHIT that course is HUGE! your balls must be at least THIS big to ride this course haha

 definitely not digging the sram and step down last jump. I know lots of riders were not liking the course this year either. and the big sender judge drop is definitely going to see some gnar crashes.

 personally i like those two features but the judge drop is just TOO big for my liking, lets see how the hardtail riders like it . . .

 Looks pretty awesome! Looks like you can go SUPER TECH or MAHOOSIVE! Or you can be Semenuk and do both.......

 Sometimes these courses are too feature oriented and the rider can't really pull tricks, sometimes they are too boring and it is the same old stuff, but this course is an awesome combination of interesting features while still giving riders a chance to try big tricks. Seeing what people will throw off that last booter will be interesting if the competition is close at the end.

 Looks like there will be only one main line but much more creative than last years..

 Looks like they 're aiming to keep the K-Box, Boner and Sender for us regular riders after the Big show. After seeing the boys pull some nice stuff off the first drop in Colo, it will be interesting to see whats gonna come off the judging tower. 7-drop?? Dbl Whip?? Tuck-3 If Timo was here he'd probably try to gap over the tower (remember '04)

SSSSSSTOKAGE!!!!!!!!

HAVE FUN
Thanks for the walk through Aggy.

 Guys, the "stoned" remark was just a joke about the whole, "whoa dude, gnarly, killer, sick" way that Graham was speaking in the interview. Nothing more. Insert smile and laughter....here.

 It's to bad slopestyle courses can mostly be rode on a hardtail. time to put mountain back in mountain bike slopestyle. I can't wait for Rampage.
  • 1 0
 I Don't think many pros will be running hardtails on this course. I'd say it's way more 'mountain bikey' than last years.... bigger lines, more variety.... though I do prefer Rampage & Chatel over the typical SS comp.
  • 1 0
 They have to to hit the 25ft step down other then that not much need. If your gonna make a big bike course then make it all big. If not don't make it a DJ course
