Danny Macaskill and Ryan Leech – Legends Unite

0

Whistler’s Kokanee Crankworx is all about Going Big. Whether it is DH, Slalom, Slopestyle or even Cheese Rolling, Crankworx will always push it up one notch and go a little farther than expected or even imagined possible. With that in mind there is almost a pre-conceived notion for the festival that can almost make it seem predictable. This past Saturday however, The Ryan Leech Trials Demonstration was a little different than the usual.

Youtube sensation and trials/street riding extraordinaire Danny Macaskill made a guest appearance at the 2pm Ryan Leech Trials Demonstration where the two rode together for the first time ever. While they are both masters of the sport, the riding styles of Ryan and Danny could not be more different. Ryan is a a composed, methodical and precise rider while Danny is Fluid, momentum driven and powerful rider. As I said, both incredible to watch, but still approach each obstacle in a completely different manner.

Every year Crankworx seems to get just a little bigger. The event brings the worlds best to Whistler BC for a week and a half of racing/competing action. From racing to slopestyle, pumptrack to photos really this is the biggest cycing competition in the world. While I have not had the time to see everything, The Ryan Leech trials demo and the best trick competition have been highlights as of so far. With that in mind, these are a few shots from said events.
