Blenkinsop and Buchar win Crankworx Garbanzo DH 2011

Sam Blenkinsop and Claire Buchar win the Garbanzo DH race at Crankworx, Whistler.

Is this the hardest downhill race in the world? Fourteen minutes of pain on a super difficult track. Could be.

Blenky and Buchar beat the pain and take home the giant cheques.

Marcel Gutierrez had a banger so too Jack Reading. Ben Reid just outside the top 10 (come on lads, lets have some blog action from Cranky!)

Manon Carpenter had a great ride for 2nd, just 7 seconds behind Buchar. (She beat her dad too. Carps senior had a bit of big smash, so get well soon J)

Oh and check out all the big names who DNS: Brosnan, Atherton, Hart, Fairclough, Riffle. It’s National Champ season so are they saving themselves?

Stay tuned for some Parkin Crankworx magic. (Come on lads, fire that laptop up and beam out the gold!)
