Racers and freeriders took to Crabapple Hits at Whistler Mountain Bike Park to throw their best whips, the biggest and most stylish of which was rewarded with a $1,000 cash prize.
Cam Zink and Brendan Fairclough took home honors of Best Overall Lines, while Ian Morrison had the Lowest Whip / Scrub, and second place went to Thomas Vanderham. But this year’s title went to Tyler McCaul.

The Dual Speed and Style event debuted Saturday at Crankworx, pitting an invitational field of Dual Slalom riders and slopestyle superstars against each other head-to-head and side-by-side down tricked-out Dual Tracks.
Rounding out the events this weekend at Crankworx was Sunday's Garbanzo DH, a 7-kilometer, 3400-foot descent through some of the gnarliest terrain of the Whistler Bike Park. Masochists, right this way.
Day two of Crankworx featured the Canadian Open Enduro, a rally-style mash-up of DH and XC riding.
