Crankworx Rotorua 2016 – Day Two

Posted on Thursday, 10 March 2016

Thursday’s action included Pump Track, Slopestyle Training and the Mons Royale Dual Speed & Style training and main event.

For the little ones, Kidsworx was in full swing. BMX champion Andrew Hickey ran coaching sessions on the Pump Track and Pimp My Ride, a Scavenger Hunt and the Tamariki Track were up and running again on Thursday. Kids from far and wide, and of all abilities got amongst it, which was awesome to see!

Speed and Style is a signature Crankworx creation, which challenges head-to-head competitors to balance the need for speed against extra points for stylish tricks. Congratulations to Tomas Slavik (CZE) for taking home the victory of the Mons Royale Dual Speed and Style event, five years after last competing at Crankworx. American Jill Kintner has taken out her first win in the 2016 Crankworx World Tour season.

For those of you who can’t make the event, Crankworx is broadcast live from Crankworx.comPinkbike.com and the Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle is live on Red Bull TV
