Photos and Results: Crankworx Whistler - Fat Tire Crit

by Pinkbike Staff  

Crankworx started today with the Fat Tire Crit, held in the village next to the iconic Olympic rings. Racing was pretty straightforward: 20 minutes on the rivet, plus 3 laps for the women; 25 minutes on the rivet plus five laps for the men. Cash Primes were offered throughout the crit as incentive to go hard, plus the chase moto could cut slower racers out of the mix at any moment, so it was in the racer's benefit to stay as close to the front as possible.

Andreane Lanthier Nadeau--aka Alm--getting the hole shot not too shabby after training 7 hours today for the EWS.
  ALN leads out the ladies early on.

Berkenpas with a flyer off the front that eventually turned into a solo affair.

Hmmm theres a dude in a red bull lid behind us.. should we worry Nope--eyes front and ignore that guy.

  It was a strong field in the mens with a dozen riders holding position for the lead group.
