I gave it everything I had but it wasn't enough for the result I wanted...However i think its one of the best race runs I've ever put down so leaving stoked and excited for the rest of the season!

Propain Factory Racing

Join the journey with Propain Factory Racing in the second episode of their 2021 video series.

Crankworx is always a fun event and makes for an amazing time in the Austrian Alps doing all the different disciplines and enjoying time on the hardtails, slalom and DH bikes!

Main focus has been on the downhill but we couldn't miss the opportunity to race dual slalom and pumptrack, as well as a perfect evening at whippoff!

As it comes to downhill we had some ups and downs during the downhill race. George Brannigan was flying the whole week but couldn't make it on the final run due to a flat tire. Henry Kerr and Luke Meier-Smith finished 31st and 30th.

Remy Meier-Smith had an amazing run and proved he can mix with the best junior riders in the World, finishing 2nd with only 3.289 to the winner.

For the break before heading down to Les Gets riders split to different events.


Henry and Remy smashed out the IXS Downhill Cup at Brandental which turned out really well. Henry grabbing 5th spot in elite with just 0.338 off the win and Remy won the Junior U21 category!


Same week Luke Meier-Smith grabs 2 times second place in U21 category at EWS at Canazai. Losing less than a second to the winner with 30min of racing!


Les Gets provided a fresh and fast track for the second round of 2021 World Cup.


Unfortunately, Remy Meier-Smith and Henry Kerr didn’t qualify for the finals after their qualifying runs didn’t go to plan.


Luke and George went into the finals with positive thinking for Saturday. They both improved their runs and we’re stoked for the results despite bad weather.



George finished a very respectable 8th place and Luke Meier-Smith grabbed 19th place in his first ever World Cup elite final.

Onto a little break and we're even more excited for further races this season!

 Bernard Kerr is not wrong, his race run was amazing, I'd suggest watching it again on Red Bull TV if it is available - incredible to watch.
