The heat and dust combined with wide turns, steep woods and endless alpine meadows make this Crankworx Les Gets run a legendary one. Australians vs French in the first two places ! The best female riders in the world were present in Les Gets, including Manon Carpenter (GBR), Tracey Hannah and Myriam Nicole (FRA). The latter won her first Crankworx in Les Gets, ahead of Tracey Hannah (AUS) and Swiss rider Emilie Siegenthaler.

Same scenario on the men’s side, with the presence of Troy Brosnan and the incredible Greg Minnaar, holder of 70 podiums in his career. It must be said that the challenge was big.

Dual Speed & Style

Jakub Venci’s endurance allowed him to take the victory in the Dual Speed & Style of the Crankworx Les Gets 2017. Strength and perseverance are perhaps the keys to success in reaching the podium of this event. However, Jakub Vencl proved that rest can sometimes pay off. With 3 consecutive victories under his belt, he is the man to beat, despite his recent health problems which forced him to rest following his victory at the Dual Speed & Style in Rotorua (New Zealand).

He also excels in Slopestyle, which he has been doing for 10 years, and one of his goals is to compete in Pump Track. His background as a trials rider makes him an outstanding competitor who could well dominate all mountain bike disciplines. Another top rider is Martin Soderstrom. The Swede, who is coming back from injury, took third place in the ranking ahead of the American Mitch Ropelato. He considers this performance as a first victory and is training hard in the gym to get back to his best level.

Pump Track

The Pump Track of the Crankworx Les Gets 2017 won by the specialist of the discipline, Frenchman Adrien Loron.
In second place, another Frenchman, Chaney Guennet. COCORICO ! He is considered THE Pump Track specialist, undefeated in the discipline and yet he had not won a Crankworx since the one in Les Deux Alpes 4 years ago.
Adrien Loron (FRA) has always fought on the bumps and turns of every Pump Track on the Crankworx World Tour. However, he has only won in Les Gets in France in this discipline that he has mastered.
“You always learn from your mistakes, I was always convinced that I was capable of getting back to the top,” he said.

Winner Jill Kintner said that her downhill training sessions on the day had paid off in the Pump Track win. “You have to have good timing and good legs. You don’t pedal, but you sprint using your whole body. So you have to be very dynamic. In second place, Caroline Buchanan (AUS) finds additional motivation in this fierce competition as she too covets the title of “Queen of Crankworx”.
