Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle

Big jumps and bigger tricks

Video by Liam Mullany

Rainfall couldn’t keep the Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle contest from going off. The skies cleared up and the moisture took leave of the jumps, dissipating dramatically in clouds of steam not unlike the geothermal vents which can be seen (and smelled) around Rotorua. Riders took to the course, which, though a bit soft, was rideable. When all was said and done Canadian Brett Rheeder took top honors. Watch our Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle video to see what went down.
