Inside The Tape: Les Gets Downhill - Crankworx Les Gets 2018

Jun 22, 2018
by Pinkbike Staff  

Two legends, one course walk. The Crankworx Les Gets DH track is long and extremely fast. What will it take to have a good run? Tippie and Gracia give us the inside line.

 Les Gets should be back on the World Cup circuit! There's no school like the old school

 would be awesome if this track were on the World Cup circuit-I agree. Red bull however would probably insist on turning it into a bike park track

 Redballs is giving out helmets like the health department gives out condoms.

 Very well done by both Tippie and Cédric. Also hey, surprise guest appearance from Peaty! Will he do the mid-course stop for a beer this time?

A little difficult to hear Cédric sometimes, surprisingly, but I got used to that.

 The new Standard for track walks. I feel like I owe Mr. Gracia a coaching fee after this...

 I honestly expected this to be way more annoying. Pleasantly surprised that this was very educational and they were bot super mellow.

 Ha! Thought exactly the same. Both these men, together!! But heh, they were concentrated and educational.

 I really hope Crankworx shows us the first wooden jump after the start and cuts then to the grass section at the end. That'll be the best use of their two cameras.

Can someone tell me where this starts? I know Michaela Gatto (sp?) will tell me it starts right here, but, where is here?

Bring on the hype machine that is a Crankworx broadcast. Athletes deserve more than the drivel they get currently...

Two thumbs up to CG and Tippie though. Great track walk.

 A current racer trying to keep his cards to his chest like be smooth, keep those brakes open, yada yada. Which is fair enough. But THIS is what we want to hear. Ex WC Racer telling freely every detail he sees on track. TOP!
