Photo Epic: Silver Star Air DH – Crankworx Summer Series


It’s been a hell of a week for Vaea Verbeeck. 2nd in Enduro, and a sweep of Dual Slalom, DH and Air DH, the question is: can anyone dethrone defender Queen of Crankworx? His accident on Tuesday is said to have stopped most of the fatalities.On the men’s side, it’s not quite the same at the top of the podium, but it’s close. Finishing 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, Finn Iles leads the men’s standings, leaving Silver Star, with Bas Van Steenbergen just second.

So with the results already revealed from today’s Air DH event, let’s move on to some photos.
