Photo Epic: Crankworx L2A - DS&S

Jul 11, 2015
by Bartek Wolinski  
The Dual Speed & Style went down in dry and dusty conditions yesterday. It was a case of deciding whether to go for speed or style; if not both. Riders took the course to race in the heat and although the track was watered through the day it dried almost immediately. Bernard Kerr was the fastest man of the day, stoked to come away with a win after so many years of competing at Crankworx. Sam Reynolds kept things fast and stylish taking second place, very closely followed by Pump Track Challenge winner, Adrien Loron. Speed triumphed over style once again, but it's no easy feat to thrown down when you're hitting things at those speeds.

Let s get ready for the Crankworx Les 2 Alpes s Speed amp Style competition.
