Straitline Gear at Crankworxs 2012

This years event was big time, the show must go on type of big and that came with a lot of carnage on the riders as the winds picked up.

So it was anyone's game and our riders threw down in front of a crowd of 50,000.

Starting with Casey Groves who is full factory Straitline, he had a hell of a day finding out a family member just passed away but threw it down a ride dedicated to his cousin.

Casey has nothing but heart!

3rd place winner McCaul stole the show with our Hydro and had some squirrely landings that sent him into the Teva booth or RedBull icon  making the crowd roar:

5th place winner Anthony Meserre boosting as usual on our Defacto pedals, the wind didn’t play favourites, this event was gnarly.

Jack Fogelquist, riding our Defacto pedals took some big falls due to winds. He was killing it but washed out on the dry surface ending his runs, he was bummed for sure after winning an invite

This opening shot in qualification shows his crash at 1:15, he still qualified and shook it off for the next days showdown.

I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Great work!
