Crankworx - Day 2 images

Yesterday was another stunner here at Crankworx, Rotorua. It was practise day for DH & Slope with the big event of the day being the Mons Royale Dual Speed and Style.

Check out all the the Spoke team's images from the day as Jill Kintner became the first ever women's winner of the Speed & Style and Tomas Slavik showed that sometimes speed is better than style as he stole the big prize away from Kyle Strait.

Are you fast enough and do you have any style?

Fast and furious - Tomas turned on the speed in the final with the fastest time of the day, which was too much even for Kyle's double tailwhip finish
