Crankworx Slopestyle Top To Bottom
The 2010 Crankworx course starts with this drop-in step down onto a transition that shoots you out toward the next feature..
..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.
Riders will step up to the top of the judges tower via a rather large wooden booter..
.. and then get their shit together for the 20 x 25 drop off the end. Did I mention that it is also a hipped step down? Rowdy!
The Monster satellite dish/wall ride is up next.
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.
Riders will exit the catchers mitt and get their sprint on towards the course's final stunt...
... which is a dirt to dirt ender sender!
