The 2014 Crankworx Europe event is kicking off in Les 2 Alpes, France, right now and as we've come to expect from a Crankworx event people are going huge, and with that comes equally huge crashes. Nicholi Rogatkin has been the first rider to eat dirt in a spectacular fashion after his massive front flip attempt went just a little bit wrong, but we've got a feeling this will probably be just the first of many big crashes from the event.

He was definitely lucky to walk away from that one!
