Australian Sam Hill claims first place in Garbanzo Downhill during the 4th annual Kokanee Crankworx. With a time of 14:25.7, Hill made sure to leave the competition behind on an epic, mud-slicked course in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.

An impressive field of athletes descended 3,400 vertical feet from the top of the Garbanzo Zone, through technical single track and high speed open sections on the Dave Murray ski run, finishing over the GLC Drop at the base of the Boneyard.

“Crankworx is awesome. I look forward to it every time, it’s the most relaxing event of the year”, says Sam Hill, winner of the event and Monster team rider. “The course was a little slick today but I had my mud tires on and they worked well for me, I’m pretty happy right now.”

With Hill grabbing first, second place was awarded to Justin Leov from Golden Colorado, with a time of 14:59.3; third place went to Andrew Neethling of Draper, Utah with a time of 15:01.9; and Marc Beaumont of Dronfield, UK took fourth with a time of 15:04.9.

The top rider in the women’s category was Tracy Moseley of the UK with a time of 17:23.5; Fionn Griffiths of Shrewsbury, UK took second place with a time of 17:32.6; Joanna Petterson of South Africa took third place with a time of 18:32.3; and hometown girl Angela Teng of Whistler, BC took fourth with a time of 18:37.3.

Tomorrow, July 23, marks the start of WomenzWorx with Gala training all day and the Gala Competition taking place Tuesday, July 24. This event is the first of its kind in North America and WomenzWorx festivities include free Bike Park tickets to the fist 100 women to check in at Guest Relations.
