Mountain Biking

The massive festival of all things mountain biking that is Crankworx rolls into the Les Gets this week, bringing the world’s best riders to the small French town.

The main contest is scheduled to take place this weekend (weather permitting) but in the meantime the riders have been keeping themselves busy with a whip off competition. Given that the whip is the most photogenic thing you can do on a bike, this was quite the event – and thankfully our man Callum Jelley was on hand to capture the whole thing with his camera.

We haven’t seen whips this twisted since last Saturday’s trip to the local sex dungeon…

1) Ryan ‘RDog’ Howard came second but won the day with whips so cracked they were audible

2) Peanut Gallery, features humans, not peanuts

3) Aforementioned peanut, Edward Masters showing off his colourful pants

4) Andreu Lacondeguy whipped so hard he span all the way round. Animal!

5) Topo with the famous Flamingo

6) These Kiwis are not flightless birds. Ed Masters and Rupert Chapman

7) Bernado Cruz took home the win with his ridiculous moto-x style whips

8) 3rd place went to Louis Reboul who was constantly cracking way past 90 degrees

9) Just a couple of dawgs! RDog being chased down but the Bulldog, Brook Macdonald

10) Brook Macdonald once stole my flip-flops, true story. Pictured here just stealing the show.

11) Danglin’ with Sergi Cabrera

12) Luis Lacondeguy hanging it way out!

13) Swedens are so damn stylish. Martin Soderstrom proves my point here.

14)  Andreu doing an aerial science experiment

15) Do you think they got the shot? RDog doesn’t care

16) Carson Storch was one of the only fellas on a slope bike and damn did he make it look good

17) Sam Blenkinsop reachin’ for the sky
