This was Crankworx Innsbruck

June 27, 2017 / Athlete News

The first ever Crankworx Innsbruck is in the books, and what a show it was.

The Polygon-UR Team scored gold, silver and bronze: Tracey Hannah won the downhill race with a comfortable 6 seconds gap, while her brother Mick finished second just 0.25 seconds behind the current world champion Danny Hart. Kenta Gallagher is finding his speed again after an injury with an 18th place. Sam Reynolds proved to be up to form at the Dual Speed & Style and scored a third place.

The main event, the Slopestyle presented by Kenda, was a gripping show like no other. Due to a bad weather forecast for Sunday, the finals were moved to Saturday. Thousands of spectators lined the course and the event was broadcasted live on Red Bull TV. A starters lineup full of big names, it was Nicholi Rogatkin who laid down an absolutely mind blowing winning run. Crankworx Innsbruck was a great success, and we are already looking forward to coming back next year!

The Hannahs are unstoppable right now and are putting down a killer season.
