After a very late night and an amazing yesterday I’m sure most people’s heads were pounding and in need of a bit of a sleep in. Add in record high temperatures and very dusty conditions you’d think the Canadian Open was somewhere like in Utah or Interior BC. The final event is surely not be missed as the Canadian Open downhill course is straight up gnarly. With super steep technical singletrack to a new bottom jump section with some serious pop everyone who was there to see it live got their day’s worth. The Open is starting to become a huge crowd pleaser with the shirts off rock and rowdy crowds heckling anyone they could and others just running all over to see all the features. In the end it was top world cup downhillers Emmeline Ragot taking the Pro womens and Gee Atherton taking the mens. Both are looking forward to the World Championships in 2 weeks in Mt. Saint Anne QC. Crankworx 2010 is surely to go down as the best ever with yesterdays record crowds and great weather everyday all events went off without a hitch.
Until next year where we’ll be back again enjoy some of the highlights of today and overall.
