PHOTO EPIC: Crankworx Les Gets

For the second week in a row the mountain bike world collected in a European mountain town for an array of two-wheeled activities. And boy was it a good time!

The Whip-Off competitions around the globe seem to get more and more wild as the weeks go on. Kade Edwards left it hang for the French crowd, grabbing a second place and some impressive photos!

Crankworx events see riders turn their hand to an array of different disciplines. Rachel Atherton took to Dual Slalom racing this weekend, beating BMX legend Jill Kintner to grab the win!

Bernard Kerr would have to face off his Pivot Cycles team mate Eddie Masters in the final, edging him out by the smallest of margins to capture the win!

Every inch counts when it comes to pump track racing. Luca Cometti looked smooth on track and earned himself a 3rd place finish when the night was done.

2nd place probably wasn’t what Myriam Nicole was looking for on home soil. She’ll be raring for the battle when the next World Cups come around!

If winning the Dual Slalom wasn’t enough, Rachel Atherton also picked up the DH victory. Is she on a roll?

We’re always grateful to see this legend back between the tape. Steve Peat can rail a grassy turn better than most!

11th place for Mark Wallace on what has to be one of the fastest downhill tracks raced in today’s era!

Smooth and stylish as ever, Luca Shaw looked to be having a great time in Les Gets, finishing in 9th place.

Loris Vergier continues to put in solid results all season long; 3rd place for the Syndicate rider in Les Gets and looking great for the World Cups ahead.

Two years in a row Troy Brosnan has marked the grassy slopes of Les Gets as his own, capturing back to back wins on his classical race track. Great job Troy!
