 I fell asleep houndreds of time during watching last 200meters of garbanzo or air dh and when trere is something interesting to watch there is no lifestream.... every shitty bike event has better coverage than crankworx this year. it sux so much! but nice to READ that Finn takes the win.

 the point off that competition is for it not to be live streamed
  • + 31
 I thought the point of the competition was to find out who had the best whip. I don't know where I got that idea from...

 You were clearly wrong. The whole point of the whip-off is to make sure no one outside Whistler gets to see it.

 Just uploaded an album of some of the sickest whips of the whip-off this year, if you're hungry for content

 Finn's parents are some of my best and oldest friends. They aren't Rich by Whistler standards, both work hard,but care huge about their boyz and what they do. Finn's older brother is a top WC downhiller junior. These boyz are super talented, and have amazing, totally un-selfish support from there folks. Right on Finn.

 @mattsavage The only way you get to be riding crankworx at 14 is with rich parents. Im sure money wont be an issue.

 @NoahColorado best comment ever
  • + 34
 I'm pretty sure it's not his "rich parents" that taught him to whip like a bauss
  • + 8
 He's sponsored anyways, that's how he gets all of his cool gear rides. Besides, even if his parents are rich, he has some sick talent to back it up. @Matt-W

 The live video coverage of Crankworx so far has been horrible at capturing the nature of the events. Then there's finally a good comp where you ONLY need one or two camera angles and they can't do it? Come on!!!!!!

 Sad but true,coverage has been hugely average, bummer.

 Yewwww ! Finn is a killer :o ! It's totally awesome that a kid of 14 years old has been the best ! Big Grin Congrats Finn Iles ! The crankworx had reason to let him ride.
  • + 1
 All the top guys were killing it, amazing to watch. Would hate to be a judge, could have gone to anyone in the top 5. Andreu and Aggy were boosting higher than most. Kerr and Thelander were throwing down huge and not even in top 5! The level of riding was insane!

 Big ups to the the coolest parents ever, money has nothing to do with it. Choosing to raise your kids in one of the most beautiful, caring communities anywhere is a great decision. Good things happen to good people
