Start List: Slopestyle - Crankworx Rotorua 2019

Mar 22, 2019
by James Smurthwaite  
Nicolia Rogatkin winding up his 1440 spin during the last run of Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle 2018

The time for imagining, training and perfecting is over. The 14 best Slopestyle athletes in the world have left their training grounds and are ready to show the world, and each other, what they’ve been working on.

The top six riders from last year's Slopestyle World Championship gain automatic entry, plus the next top-eight riders from the FMB World Ranking, as of six weeks prior to event start date, get a golden ticket. Noticeably absent are Szymon Godziek (POL), currently recovering from ACL surgery, and Simon Pages (FRA), who had to withdraw. Taking Pages’ place is Alex Alanko. Matt Jones is also injured, allowing Tom Isted to compete in the event.

There aren't many options to pull from to form the perfect Fantasy team here so each pick is key. You have until the live broadcast starts, choose wisely.



Check back after the event to find out how your team did then make sure you start editing your team for Innsbruck in June.

 Is anyone having trouble editing the team for the slopestyle event?

 Yes. I've tried the usual - restarting, logging in/out, etc. PB will be awake soon & will get it figured out.

 Matt Jones is out, he is injured Frown
Tom Isted (Instead ?) is taking his spot.

 Mixed feelings on this one. Definitely wanted to see Matt shred the course as he was throwing down in practice. But Tom has been killing it lately and working hard to get here.
  • + 2
 @AWDxTY: I guess it's also a mixed feeling for Tom, getting your spot because Matt is injured... But... it's the rules.

 What!? Matt Jones is out? I need to go see what I can read on this. I was really looking forward to his riding this year.

 As a designer, making those sequence comps for Rogatking must be a pain Big Grin
  • + 1
 They're just a bunch of pictures of mountain bikers in various positions close together... The man rotated so many times and so fast, the sequences look disjointed and always give me a chuckle
  • + 2
 Absolute black just posted a pic of Matt's NEW helmet really jacked up but they said he was okay so we'll see. I hope he can still ride
