Just the Tip: EWS Giant Toa Enduro - Crankworx Rotorua 2017 - Video

Mar 26, 2017 at 16:36
by Pinkbike Staff  

Wild times on the trails of Rotorua for the first stop of the 2017 Enduro World Series calendar. Rain, deep ruts, mud, and plenty of mechanicals and crashes made it incredibly challenging for all of the racers, including the best in the world. Wyn Masters and Cecil Ravanel persevered to take top honours, but there was plenty of good action. Get in on all the action in the first episode of Just The Tip with Brett Tippie for the 2017 Crankworx season.

 Wait do we actually have to take Wyn Masters seriously now? Cause after years of conditioning from his videos I'm not sure I can.

 honestly I think it that the rest of the field (especially the loosest riders with mega flow) can reel him in when he can't churn that v12 hes got under the hood.... like a bug diesel stuck in the mud.

 You know what they say about american muscle.

 Well last man down after the "loose" riders in the mud has its serious disadvantages... Although I do give the advantage to a few others as well. He still placed 1st and 3rd on stages 6 and 7, "How bow sum credit?"

 Maybe it's that stupid looking helmet of his? It's going to be hard for everyone to look at him with a straight face all season.
  • + 4
 @Dethphist: I heard his helmet kept getting stuck between the trees in tighter sections.

 Tippie does beauty interviews! Keeps the stoke level high! YT was sharp on scooping up this old stallion ????????⚔️
  • + 12
 No doubt. Tippie is definitely the ambassador of stoke!
  • + 9
 Wyn might be the MTB Jesus, His re-writing the the rules and making miracles, won't be surprised if a video surfaces of him riding on top of the puddles and mud,

 Stoked for Wyn and it takes a metric sh!t ton of training and skills to compete at this level and in those conditions. I do doubt that these results will be repeated at any of the subsequent rounds (yes I know that the Masters brothers are not contesting the entire EWS). The tracks were destroyed for the top 20 riders, not to mention what happened on course 1.

I think the overall is going to come down to a few riders, namely Rude, Graves and Hill. Take a look at the results for Stages 6 and 7 once things began to dry out. My early season prediction is Hill taking the overall.

 Tippie for Chief?

 #enduro keeps dishing up tasty races... far more variety on the podiums than dh ... except for Cecile of course...

 Awesome to see the DH riders doing so well - with Tippie as MC, they're all making Enduro very cool

 I like how Josh Bryceland is so casual; Wearing a a half-shell, a long sleeve T-Shirt, no gloves, no glasses or googles.
  • + 1
 Except rat was wearing glasses. You must be thinking of Eddie, because he fits your description. Maybe if rat wore no knee pads like Eddie he might have been able to keep up.
