Inside the Tape: EWS Raw - Crankworx Whistler 2017

Aug 12, 2017
by Pinkbike Staff  

Get out on course with Tippie and see what the line choices are for the top EWS racers and some fast locals to boot. Tippie guides us through some of what he is seeing out on the rough and ragged Westside trails that make up stages two (Rockwork Orange » Korova Milk Bar » Wizard (not Whistler) Burial Ground), three (Billy Epic » Bob's Rebob), and four (Howler » No-View) of the 2017 race. With rain forecast for race day, how much of these lines will change?



MENTIONS: @bretttippie / @EnduroWorldSeries / @officialcrankworx

 Agreed, I could seriously watch 40+ minutes of tippie explaining lines then watching the worlds best demonstrate!

 Just the tease!

 Dear Pinkbike, please more of these kinds of trails!

 These videos are sick! One of these for every venue, for the most technical features would be sick! The possibilities are endless too. Gnarly XC features like the drop at Lenzerheide, or how to navigate the rock gardens at MSA!

 Gonna go ahead and pile on and say YES to these videos. I know it pays the bills for PB, but I think we all spend too much time online obsessing about gear rather than skillz, which coincidentally also pays the billz. Huge thumbs up for Hot Lap and Inside the Tape.

 This is pretty sick - combine this with a little onboard gopro footage and this has some great potential.

 You can see these fragments of trail in Rics course preview posted a bit earlier Wink I've seen it before this and it's great to see the footage from the side now along with some line choice analysis Smile

 Fantastic ! More of this please. More Tippie line analysis ! Sooo good !! I love the analysis and explanation - followed by world class riders showing how its done. When I grow up, I wanna ride like that. Ok, I'm 40 something.

 Awesome format that really shows the skill of the riders and the importance of line choice. It is amazing what a difference each of those small decisions on lines make over the course of a full day of racing.

 Awesome segment. Tippie is killing it.

 Yeeeah!! Now thats what I want to see! No slowmo, annoying music or anything. Put Tippie there and ask a rider to explain a line, then film it how its done!

 Awesome to see fantastic coverage cheers

 Tippie has been a little over the top in the past but this was just solid analysis of line choice, exit speed, sending it, etc. More of this please.

 Love this vid. The rock plus angled root section gave me the creeps. Rae Morrison rode it so effortlessly... these guys and girls are totally awesome.

 That chicken run switchback line at 1:50 looks so much more difficult that the straightline drop
  • + 4
 Inside or In Between the tape? same difference?

 Ha, yeah, slight slip of the tongue from the Tipster. New series, Inside the Tape. It's hectic up there!

 @AJBarlas: If it comes natural, just roll with it.. Cause you ain't gonna train Tippie's tongue.

 @denomerdano: Hah that's for sure, but we don't want to step on toes with Clay Porter's 2006 movie "Between the Tape".

 Why you didn't do that earlier?!?! I love that, seing lines, that's what we like! How can you say it's a Frenchline when we're still in between the tape?! ahah! Yewwww
