Third Time's The Charm - Jack Reading at Crankworx

Aug 24, 2010
by Goldstein Productions  
Ellsworth's and Jack Reading's visit to Crankworx 2010.

This year, Ellsworth came out to Crankworx with a full trailer and support, making Jack's visit from the UK even bigger. After three years of racing at Crankworx, Jack has managed to get two stellar results in BOTH the Garbanzo DH, and CND Open, placing seventh, and thirteenth respectively.

Video inside,“ON THE LINE! ON THE LINE!” were the only words we could make out from two Asian riders we met after hiking back to the top of D1. Jack Reading and I had been filming all day, when we met two riders who started talking to Jack, but he couldn’t understand what they were saying. One struggled to say that he couldn’t speak English very well; however the one thing that was clear was that they knew Jack. After a few seconds of thinking, they finally started yelling, “ON THE LINE! ON THE LINE!” Instantly, Jack and I knew they had seen him in the movie, which was released last Spring. The two riders carried on to tell us that they came from South Korea for a few weeks to ride Whistler. It has been one thing to get some fan mail from people in various countries, but we were blown away to actually meet two people from halfway around the world who, although they could barely speak English, were raving about Jack's segment in On The Line.



So to anyone who enjoyed Jack’s part in On The Line, here’s round two with Jack from Crankworx this year:

 Didn't know him before crankworx but had a bit of a chat whilst supplying tools to his Ellsworth buddy who flatted up garbo. Turns out he's a real nice guy as well as a pinner! What is it with so many pros being awesome? Pros in so many other sports turn out to be douchebags.
+1 for Mountainbikers!

 I like how at 0:15 the film has been reversed to get that lowering view - you can see people in the station walking backwards.

Jack has got to be one of the most dynamic riders I've ever watched. It's no wonder that most of the vid had to be in slo mo.

 Shame he isn't racing next year seems to be on form and riding bette each year atm. Was talking to him at Val di Sole and he is doing masters in optometry, not exactly a walk in the park as far as degrees go so next year he is dedicating to study. Good luck to him but he is pinned
