Day 1 of Whistler Crankworx is a wrap, so here is a group of photos that were captured during the event.

Check inside for Crankworx images...Day 1 of Whistler Crankworx is finished up and was a successful day. The weather was basically a slight rain all day, which should be a big help to the racers this week. The pits were getting rolling and the pro riders were hitting the tracks.
