Garbanzo DH Crankworx Day 3

Garbanzo Dh is a technical 15minute DH from the top of Whistler Bike Park. The trails are steep technical and gnarly as you decend your way down to the Whistler Valley. Downhill bikes are usually the weapon of choice, this year Chris and myslef thought it would be a good challenge to hit it on our trail bikes the Santacruz Nomads and test our ability against the Worlds best Dh racers. Racing the previous two days in the criterium and the enduro it was all about survival and keeping it clean and fast on course.

We were stoked to be just outside the top 20 and 1minute of the leader in a stacked pro field of 80 racers consisting of many dh world cup racers and local shredders. Full results are here – http://www.crankworx.com/whistler/downloads/Garbanzo%20DH%20results.pdf
