5 Must Watch Videos From Crankworx Whistler

If you haven't been following Crankworx and seen the action you probably should change that right now. Below are a handful of videos from the bonkers event, from unReal star Brandon Semenuk's winning slopestyle run to the Canadian Open DH highlights, with classic Brett Tippie appearances throughout. Crankworx is the pinnacle of mountain bike competition mayhem and really has it all, so get caught up on all of the craziness that went down this year at the Whistler Bike Park.

#1: Brandon Semenuk's Winning Joyride Run

Brandon Semenuk slays, as most everyone should be well aware of by now. He absolutely crushed his way to a first place finish in Joyride, throwing two huge cork 720's and some other extremely technical tricks to do so.

Whipping a bike is one of the best feelings in the world. The whip off comp at Crankworx is the best riders in the world getting their bikes absurdly sideways in the most stylish whips you will ever see. You'll definitely be inspired to perfect your bike throwing skills after watching this one.

#3: Canadian Open Downhill  

Super rough, fast, and steep; the Canadian Open DH race is no joke and the speed and finesse that world class racers ride with is mind blowing. Check it out as they bounce like crazy through roots, and absolutely blast through the whoop section at the bottom of the course. 

#4: Head to Head Pumptrack Racing 

This isn't your average pump track, or your average riders ripping it. This head to head pump track challenge looks like one hell of a time, and these riders absolutely tear it up, showing off how well rounded of riders they are. 

#5: Fox Air DH

100+ features for riders to air, scrub, and get all-around rowdy on is what the Fox Air DH consists of. Finishing on top in the men's division was Steve Smith, after coming back from multiple ankle injuries in the past year and first place for women was claimed by Jill Kitner. Be sure out Steve getting drifty in unReal as well.
