Brian Lopes Claims First At Jim Beam Air DH At Kokanee Crankworx June 25th, Whistler BC

The Jim Beam Air Downhill took over the Whistler Mountain Bike Park Wednesday with over 340 competitors from North America and around the world. Finishing the day in top spot was Brian Lopes from Laguna Beach, CA with a time of 4:21:87.

The Jim Beam Air DH runs the length of A-Line starting at mid-mountain Olympic Station on Whistler and finishes over the GLC Drops into the Village. A-Line is the most popular and well-known freeride trail of its kind, with over 100 jumps and high speed sections where riders were clocked at nearly 40 mph (64kph) during the competition. With a one run format, the Jim Beam Air DH competitors had to pin it to win it.

As Lopes took first in the Pro Men category, Nathan Rennie from Murrieta, CA finished second; Greg Minnaar from Pietermaritzburg, RSA came third and Cedric Gracia from La Massana, AD came fourth.

In the Pro Women's category, Tracy Moseley from Malvern, UK grabbed first place with a time of 4:50:95. Second place went to Micayla Gatto from West Vancouver, BC; Fionn Griffiths from Shrewsbury, UK came third and Whistler's own Jen Ashton finished fourth with a time of 4:55:96.

Top riders in the other categories included Whistler local Stacy Kohut in the 4 Wheeler category; Edward Masters from New Plymouth, NZ in the Junior Men; local James McSkimming in the Amateur Men; Chad Hendren from Whistler in the Master Men; Casey Brown of Revelstoke, BC in the Junior Women and Aja Philp from North Vancouver, BC in the Amateur Women.
