 Any crankworx organizers from each of these parks that read these comments: Thank you for putting something together for us all during the pandemic. Hats off to your drone pilots too, really enjoyed those shots. Ended up being a really fun format with the limited resources you guys had, and you had no obligation to throw these pseudo-live events together for us, but it was entertaining and I watched them all so props. Imagine this meant a lot to the younger up and coming BC rippers too!

 Thank you. As part of the series, it has been an absolutely amazing experience. The CWX team has done SO much work in SO little time to make this happen, comments like this really help make it feel worth while. I know they read them - so thank you. 3

 Congrats to mountain biking and Crankworks for holding this event and OBVIOUSLY to Finn on the overall win. Big ups to all who rode, built and helped out.

 Nice job Crankworx on showcasing some of the other rad bike parks in BC. There is so much more to be had than Whistler. These parks have short lift lines, nice long runs and hardly any Aussies locals.

 Weird that only the top 8 are shown for the men.

Thanks to the folks who came up with the idea/organized this awesome summer tournament. Gave the rest of us something to look forward to after a day at work, or wherever.

 Did Finn race are DH or just take a victory lap? I don't see him on the results short list...

 He did a cruisey fun lap as his Air DH race run, so wasn't in the top 5 times.

 Im pretty sure he wanted to give the younger riders one better placement in a race since it didnt matter to his standing. Pretty much every interview he gave he mentioned the young rippers of BC and how great this was for them.

 plus he was no doubt extremely tired!!

 Oh Finn rode for show, not the win. His reason? He had a massively good poutine earlier in the day. (he looked HELLA stylish coming past my lens - so, go poutine!)

 @lognar: Drinking of the MilkThree-time Indianapolis 500 winner Louis Meyer regularly drank buttermilk to refresh himself on a hot day and happened to drink some in Victory Lane as a matter of habit after winning the 1936 race. An executive with what was then the Milk Foundation was so elated when he saw the moment captured in a photograph in the sports section of his newspaper the following morning that he vowed to make sure it would be repeated in coming years. There was a period between 1947-55 when milk was apparently no longer offered, but the practice was revived in 1956 and has been a tradition ever since.
