Elite Women

Crankworx brings the usual mix of local wildcards, riders going for the Queen of Crankworx titles and the downhill stalwarts. The Elite Women’s ranks were chocka with exactly that.

Elite Men

A few high profile casualties and some lightning fast runs from some up and comers saw a mix of old and new faces at the sharp end of the Elite Men.
