Day 3 of Crankworx was filled with rain, luckily for the most the people at Crankworx it was a off day. No big events, simply a day for everyone to relax before the following week starts. Id the advent of nothing going on I decided to do a couple laps, after all it is the Whistler Bike Park!Check inside for images from the day along with helmet cam footage...
Day 3 of Crankworx is just finishing up and the parties are just starting. It was a rainy monday in Whistler, BC and the pits were closed to the public, meaning the village of Whistler was fairly quiet. In the advent of nothing going on I decided to go do a couple of laps, so here are some photos explaining a bit about the day, and a video of me shredding some trails!
Cloud cover and rain haunted Whistler all day
