It's time for some sweet whipping action, and we are not talking cupcakes or 99's here. Crankworx Europe 2014 has kicked off in Les Deux Alpes and Ben 'dirtbag diary' Winder is out there with his camera for us capturing the action.

So here we are; the event everyone looks forward to twice a year, once in Canada but first here at Crankworx Europe 2014. From Crab Apple hits to this booter in the Alps both downhill racers and the slopestyle boys are here to try and bag a novelty sized cheque. This year didn’t disappoint, young Scotsman Neil Stewart took the win, at a grand age of 17 he is definitely a man to watch out for in the future. Here's my gallery from the event and plenty of whippage to get you ready for the weekend, enjoy!
