 OMG!!!!! Matt Hunter D:
  • + 6
 O wow! This is gonna be an insane start to a whole new series of big bikin! We are in for some GNAR!!!!!! YEAH
  • + 8
 The riders list is just ridiculous lol I'm so stoked for this
  • + 26
 all those runs ins and then...nothing, talk about blue balls
  • + 10
 when those guys are scared, you know those are heavy hits.
  • + 5
 Brad Stuart always builds crazy big stuff, it's awesome to see him with those guys again after Follow Me. I didn't know Aggy had recovered, that's another good news, I hope we'll have a good report of the event PB !
  • + 6
 The Riders List ist really sick!
But where is Cam Zink and Kyle Strait?
  • + 5
 Zink is filiming a car ad with Cam McCaul
  • + 5
 Høkkfest by Makken, this one by Aggy, who comes next?
  • - 1
 you need to go 65? is that a bit overrated.i know for stepdowns far NOT high you need to go blazing. i could believe it anyway, distance kills speed on the camera... everything looks slower on cam. but 65 is really fast like almost the fastest i ever went, whats possible on sanddunes... anyway these guys are sick talking of a big jump. a 1-4 th of that is already the big line in many dirtparks...
  • + 5
 k i think i get it you need to go 65 for the jump
  • + 9
 I just hope they're not speaking in mph.
  • + 1
 If you notice there's no oppo riders in the list.
  • + 6
 "If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 mph... you're gonna see some serious shit."
  • + 1
 penny for your thoughts at 1:22?
  • + 31
 I could not be more stoked for this series, cant wait to see some big bike gnarliness! Wheres Zink though?
  • + 16
 He has to do a filming project for a car company when this is on, along with Cam McCaul.
  • + 5
 Greatest idea for a Series ever!
  • + 2
 Oh yeah I saw that, flippin over the car, should make for a pretty good ad
  • + 8
 it would be cool if the coastal crew showed up.
  • + 8
 Dear Car Companies, we want our pros back, get your own. Thanks. Yours, Mountain biking.
  • + 8
 Its good that money is coming in from other sponsers to keep this kind of biking alive and to advertise so more people can enjoy it.
  • - 1
 Would mountain biking disappear if it didn't have an influx of people who only found out about it through a jeep Cherokee advert? Probably not. Would I care if the next ten weekend warriors take up wakeboarding instead, because they saw it in a sprite commercial? Nope. Car companies don't keep any kind of biking alive. We do. They simply piggyback it's success, make no mistake they sponsor those riders for profit, they couldn't give a rats ass about whether your genre survives.
  • + 6
 i dont think you understood what i was getting at. I am just saying that money influx from external companies helps out..
  • + 9
 Remember, Zink and Cam have got mouths to feed and bills to pay. There's not a lot of money in this sport so these guys have to make the most of the opportunities they are given.
  • + 15
 awesome to see this list of riders NOT IN A REDBULL COMP!! Geeee Wizzz a mountain bike comp where riders are allowed more then 3 days to build, practice, qualify, take a dump, eat, sleep. this is sooo much safer and cooler when its put on by riders for riders!!!!
  • + 19
 "seems mellow" ……..
  • + 15
 The CLAW is back!
  • + 3
 boooooom
  • + 13
 Those are some decent sized jumps..
  • + 5
 If Lacondeguy says these are the biggest jumps he's ever seen, that means they are BIG! Like, intimidating BIIIIIIG!
  • + 2
 did you mean BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG?
  • + 9
 Where's Brandon and ze boys in the bright white sports car?
  • + 3
 They would have finished filming for Rad Company by now so sucks to see them not going Frown
  • + 3
 Ryan Howard is there
  • + 3
 filming "rad company" this is definition of rad !!
  • + 1
 yea but R-Dog doesn't go everywhere with them does he?
  • + 3
 Sorry I got it now. Yea good to see one of them there but sucks Logan and Brandon aren't going
  • + 2
 couldnt agree with you more mate!
  • + 5
 That is freeride.
Finally real Freeride/Big Mountain events are back. (exepct Rampage! Rampage is awesome!)
FMB world tour should watch out for this... will become a real competition!
  • + 7
 Who's gonna be the guinea pig?
  • + 28
 Hold my beer!
  • + 5
 You know its big when its Vink asking
  • + 5
 My money is on Doerfling
  • + 8
 Kyle J, YES
  • + 4
 This event looks amazing and i hope a big turn out happens for this to support the biking community here in kamloops. I am just curious to know why Rheeder didn't make an appearance
  • + 3
 Where's RED BULL when we need them ? I WANT A LIVE COVERAGE !!!ans como on guys !it's way easier to put some cameras on the bike ranch that in the middle of the jungle !So if you survived the jungle !You can do that !I mean, filming not jumping (of course) !
  • + 8
 They will probably skip the big jumps and have three cameras covering the rider riding down the last down ramp.
  • + 3
 This is by far the most promising event concept of the last years - and the only contest I would like to take part (if I had those skills)
  • + 6
 That big jump is BIG!
  • + 1
 Matt Hunter? Well I'll be daaaaaaangned!!!!!!

So I totally don't understand the gnar on this course. WTF's the sender out the turn all about? Looks like a plunge into oblivion. What does "you need to go 67,65" mean? Is that feet or f*ckin' mph 'cuz I really can't tell lookin' at that big dirty nasty. The thing looks like it's made for 2-strokes & I'm f*ckin' lovin' it!

Speakin' of dirty nasties, love the gut there Mads. These brahs ain't f*ckin' around.
  • + 2
 anyone knows if Bourdon will take part of this series?
(I know he will not be in this one)

flag scott-townes (May 12, 2014 at 16:19) (Below Threshold)
 I'd highly doubt it... he never really was a DJer even though he threw down still the biggest flat 3 on a mtb and did some sweet supermans on the ol Kona with a leopard print seat.
  • + 2
 I visited the bike ranch last week and my jaw dropped when I saw those jumps
  • + 4
 Hell yeah!
  • + 3
 Also, what is a 'weather day', is that encase it's too windy on Saturday or sutin?
  • + 1
 I think so because it gets really windy through there.
  • + 2
 The list of riders is amazing. see Dorfling and other beasts of the forest is good for freeride.
  • + 3
 Everybody knows Lacondeguy is going to murder this.
  • + 3
 @Makken: Are you pregnant?
  • + 3
 Hold me, my beer can do this
  • + 1
 And Thats how the Crankworx should end up , not the face we are seeing today . AMEN and Props for pushing the limits Aggy !
  • + 1
 maybe it might.

this is redbull's last year with crankworx and whistler bike park.
hell, they might not even be involved this year.

monster now is the only energy drink at whistler..summer or winter.

aggy does ride for monster right?

hmmmmm.......
  • - 2
 These are awesome jumps, one of the sickest lines I ever sawn But!! personally I dont think all the riders will come up with the biggest tricks to risk the entire season But AGGY ,Andreu Lacondeguy and Sorge are totally BAD ASS BEASTS and I cant wait to see what did they come up with .
  • + 2
 Sounds like you've missed the point of this "series". It not a gathering for the Playstation trick boys...
  • + 1
 what you talking, the FEST is their season.
  • + 1
 Mountain biking is just getting bigger and bigger! Where will it end! Cant wait to watch them hit those bad boys
  • + 1
 Holy Moly! Where are the Brits? Matt Jones would go nuts on that course, as would Reynolds!
  • + 1
 The size of these bad boys is beyond my imagination. The thing that I (don't) want to see are the crashes...
  • + 2
 Is Aggy is runnin a new Kona Frame?
  • + 1
 woww, seems like freeride mountain biking is progressing! that jumps.... oh my God
  • + 1
 How will be the access to the public? I would like to go there and check it out!
  • + 1
 Its in a public park, so you can check them out all you want! Riding them though is a bigger problem, they will most likely be torn down after the event.
  • + 1
 I was sweating bullets just sitting here watching them! This is going to be one gnarly festival for sure!
  • + 3
 im so dirt horrrny
  • + 3
 Strait?

 Depends whose asking, sweetie.

 Classic
  • + 1
 holy shit those jumps are rad
  • + 1
 Aggy + Andreu + this megaline = RAD !
  • + 1
 I think it's safe to say that those jumps are a little big.
  • + 1
 Did that guy say you need to be going 65-67mph?!?!?!
  • + 2
 probably kph
  • + 2
 common sense.
  • + 1
 Yeah, kph sounds a lot better. Hahaha still fast!!
  • + 1
 where is brandon semenuk?
  • + 2
 That's why i love MTB!
  • + 1
 So who was the guinea pig ???
  • + 1
 yes no wood bs, course looks amazing
  • + 1
 Are the public allowed to ride these?!
  • - 1
 Probably, they're at the ranch and the last one runs out on the DH course if I'm not mistaken. Doubt there will be many takers.
  • - 2
 I really wanna try them but i dont know if thats a healthy decision Wink
  • + 6
 "Invitational" does not mean the public will be allowed to ride these.
  • + 3
 I imagine they'll just be hidden after the event then? Maybe they will get taken down or blocked off, I don't know. But it is a PUBLIC bike park with some pretty large hits already open.
  • + 1
 mountain biking done right
