Slavik and Burbidge-Smith take first wins at Crankworx Innsbruck 2021

Precision and power were the names of the game in the Specialized Dual Slalom Innsbruck today, as live broadcast action kicked off from Crankworx Innsbruck 2021. With a start list that featured a who’s who from every corner of mountain bike racing, it was hard to predict how the day would play out. And the unpredictability continued as racing, and the temperature in Innsbruck, heated up. On the women’s side, Casey Brown (CAN) first knocked out the #1 seeded Kialani Hines (USA) to make it to...

Two back-to-back weekends of World Cup XC has kicked the season off to a fast and furious start for a hungry field making up for lost time, vying for Olympic spots, and striving to beat World Cup records. It’s been anything but predictable as athletes and teams launch into a high stakes season.
 
Not all videos need a deeper story or a whole lot of moving parts. Sometimes the best way to achieve a great result can be to keep it simple; Take two friends who happen to be one of the best Street Trials riders and one of the best BMX riders on the planet and follow them on a mountain bike ride...
 
Even though the World Cup kick-off in Germany missed the 20,000 spectators usually huddling together around the track, this first stop managed to deliver MTB racing action at its finest.
