Crankworx Whistler: The infamous Garbonzo DH!

Tracey Hannah and the Colombian strike again!

After a long, hot and dusty day of practice, the Garbanzo DH was once again won by Marcelo Gutierrez. This is his 5th time winning this race, what an crazy achievement! Sam Blenkinsop took out second place on his trail bike, followed closely by Jack Moir – riding his prototype 29er Intense downhill bike with a lock out coil shock and dropper post… Will we be seeing this in Cairns for that finishing sprint from hell?

In the womens field, in form like never before, Tracey Hannah took the win on Polygon’s new prototype rig by 10 seconds over Claire Buchar, with Emilie Siegenthaler just behind in third. We’re thinking Tracey is upping her anté just in time for a certain World Championships in her home town….
