 Awesome event with excellent coverage. If only there were some type of game that would increase the immersion and involvement level. Maybe one where readers can pick a team to root for in each event, and accumulate points towards a grand prize. Man, that would really make me feel even more involved with the event and the brands associated.

 I don't know what my favourite tech article is, although it's probably a tie between "Spotted: Evil's New Long Travel Bike" and "Spotted: Evil's New Long Travel Bike"

(you guys wrote it twice)

 Both Evil riders killed it. A slightly bigger Wrecker with riders choice of fork length.

 What a blast to see Crankworx at a different venue.
This event was way more intimate and low key compared to the finale in Whistler.
The crowds were great and the pro’s were all awesome and accommodating.
Sven and Boris were cool as, rockstar photog duo.

 Two of the biggest highlights:
1) Tracy Hannah winning the DH by 24 seconds! She does win worldcups though, and to be fairrrr there were no top WC riders in the mens race. But still it was amazing to see her pwning.
2) Emil Johannsen doing a windshield wiper (tailwhip, stop it with your foot and swing it back the other way = insanity)

 Is anyone else disappointed that the tandem couple didn't compete in pump track, speed and style (think of the combos that'd be possible), and whip off?

 Anyone (or any couple) that can tail whip a tandem would have the honour of breaking the internet.

I for one would welcome our new tandem whipping overlords.

 Isn't it a highlight that it wasn't cancelled due to Corvid-19? Now that UCI is out does this mean we will see some more big names in the DH at round 2!!

 When it comes to articles its funny to see how much more focus there is on Tech than racing during Crankworx.

 Last big race of the year not canceled or last big race in forever?

 The biggest thing for me out of seeing all those reports is, I WANT TO BE ABKE TO TAKE PHOTOS LIKE TREVOR LYDEN. Holy crap bro, they're amazing
