Yes. There is a small retail display and Seb or Sean can help you with anything in stock at the warehouse.

Anyone here in any of the races?

Was planning on racing garbo/canadian but my knee is the size of a small watermelon so not this year.

Never done early Crankworx before, so how busy tomorrow will it be? Thinking of heading up for a few laps but don't want to be stuck inline all day.

Today's line kind of came and went, wasn't consistently busy but had some stretches where it was. The fox tent is now in place making the bottom of the park very cramped.

first time since forever that I haven't raced the enduro, but the entry fee was (is) was f'ing insane, and I couldn't bring myself to follow through with the lottery. Kinda bummed once I saw the course, stage 1 I've been advocating for for a couple of years! They probably could've got away with dropping one of the westside stages and saved it for next year....

Basically no line up at all. Jump trails were punched to shit though. Had a rad time hitting all the double blacks instead up on Garbo. Some terrifying moments! :)

May want to check out all the different trail closures if anyone is heading up during Crankworx. Definitely park at Creekside though as I'm sure that some of the day lots space will be in use for the event.

There is some rain expected on Sunday which should help to revive some of the dry trails

The day lots were surprisingly empty at 10am on Sunday morning, pay parking doing it's thing I guess. We decided to park there to catch the end of EWS and have easy access to gear with the variable weather. Lines got bad a few times throughout the day, especially as they closed the gondi for lightning hold. Garbo was never busy as usual. We did about 5,300m which is just a bit below average day for us.

Middle and lower A-Line were running mint after rebuild and the rain, especially middle, my god is that a fun piece of trail. Trail crew were rebuilding the very top of A-Line in the afternoon, taking advantage of the rain. Garbo tech is great with the new moisture. Forgot how much better lower half of Dusty's DH is than the top half.

Cool as hell to see Melamed take the win at home last night, and pretty awesome to see Sam Hill racing in person.

I 'chased' the pro men around all the westside stages, that was fun watching different trails and seeing them a few times
