 Maybe when the pinkbike community quits making stupid inappropriate comments abt girls they will be more willing...just a thought.

 I guess you never saw the naked crit races at the NORBA nationals back in the 90's.....all you favorite pros would show up in the dirt parking lot at night for a winner takes all cash in the hat event.....I just remember seeing Marla Streb full bush and all riding.

2nd Jakob Jewitt

4th Jackson Goldstone

Fox Air DH-
1st Jakob Jewitt
2nd Finn Finestone
3rd Jackson Goldstone
4th Damian Georyev

If you don't know Jakob Jewitt, Finn Finestone and Damian Georyev yet...you will! Hey Pinkbike, there were (over) 200 kids that showed up to race at Crankworx Kidsworx this year. How about some recognition for the other 199 instead of just the one!

 Because Jackson's dad has more friends that are associated with PB? That's usually how it works and thanks for posting up the results. I bet they can put in better times than rippers twice their age. Finn is amazing and I highly suggest people to search for his vids. He's like the Jackson Goldstone of freeride mtbing. Also PB, another great job with the coverage... aside from the dude imitating Cher.

 It is super awesome that they put the men and the women on the podium together. The more awesome part is that they apparently dropped the "podium girls"! Bring on the neg reps - but that "eye candy" objectification gotta stop if we actually want women to be a part of this sport.

 The "trains" looked a lot more fun and exciting in the still pictures than they did on the webcast. Love the picture of the cork screw, it shows just how step and technical that section is......well done photographers!
