    Since the beginning of the race/festival, the Dual Slalom and Monster Garbanzo Downhill have already been run.  I caught some of the live footage, and all of that skill and energy just laid out on the line was incredible!

    But in case you missed those event, the official Crankworx Blog has all of the information that you could possibly desire about the past two days.  As a part of that, they posted two great recap videos of each of the past days, which I'm embedding for you below.  They contain some talking, but a ton of great HD riding footage as well.  Check them:

    I know that I'm going to be catching as much of this coverage as I can!  This week is already feeling sort of like the World Series, College Bowl Week, or March Madness... except way more hardcore, because is mountain biking. 

    Also, I'm hoping to be able to bring you a "Live Blog" coverage/commentary of one of the upcoming events; hopefully either the Trick Showdown or the Slopestyle Competition.  Stay tuned to the blog... more details to follow!

    Question: What is the one Crankworx event that you really want to watch/
