 Great to see Sam Hill participating (and winning) in other Whistler Crankworks events this year.

Also, great to see Blenki back on form his MSA training crash. Blenki for King.

 Samuel Effing Hill. That is all.
  • + 64
 He still won even though a silly photographer was blocking a prime inside line: www.instagram.com/p/BmerM1PB99o/?hl=en&taken-by=pinkbike

 @slumgullion: What a muppet, I wonder what he thinks the tape is for?
  • + 21
 @slumgullion: I love how he just goes back to looking at his camera while standing in the course.
  • + 16
 @slumgullion: I imagine Sam had some fresh words.
  • + 27
 @taquitos: somebody should have just risked their run and drive right into that twat.
  • + 8
 Turn the volume up you can here Sam give him some choice words! Classic Aussie @bulletbassman:
  • + 80
 @slumgullion: I don’t say this lightly, and one never wants to mess with someone’s living, but that guy should get fired if he was working for a MTB outfit somewhere. Sam handled it incredibly well and was luckily able to brake and reroute, just letting a simple “Get off the track, mate!” sum up his thoughts, but man, how wrong that could have gone. Season ending wrong for Hill who’s almost wrapped up a second consecutive EWS overall. What a jackass, and then the tool just smirks and looks down at his shot, laughing it off like he knew better that the line was unrideable and what was Sam going on about. Total clueless prick. He should’ve been sending Sam an apology by that point.

 @slumgullion: What an idiotic jerk. EVERYONE knows... when it's Sam Hill, you stand in the middle of the track, on the OUTSIDE line! Wink Mad Wow. Just wow.
  • + 12
 @catfish9797: Man, I am actually furious watching this guy. Doesn't even get off the track, just stands there continuing to f*ck around with his camera. It's like watching a gif that loops and gets funnier and funnier each loop, only I am getting furiouser and furiouser.

 @gonecoastal: crankworx needs a van parking competition - they have everything else...
  • + 3
 @powderturns: Yes!
I'm wondering when the ebike-off will get added? A moto-esque track where 4x bike riders battle it out for supreme retard
  • + 2
 @gonecoastal: haha the medal needs to be a giant chrome dildo
  • + 1
 van guy will be winning this even when he’s 85.

 Only 42 entries and 22 finishers. That means if you'd entered and made it down you could claim a top 25 pro Crankworx result on your resume : )

 Hosting the event whiile there is a world cup taking place is a bit weird

 @ORTOGONAL555: a lot of WC riders raced it, flying across Canada to do it.
  • + 1
 @Rubberelli: less than 10. Maybe more riders will compete in other races
  • + 1
 @ORTOGONAL555: there was only a total of 22 pro men and 14 pro women competing, with WC riders making up a good percentage of that.
