, Video: UR Team Crankworx Rotorua Recap

The UR Team sent over their latest video from Crankworx Rotorua. Check it out inside.

What an event to kick the year off!

After 5 days of amazing times, podium results and celebrating bikes Crankworx Rotorua is officially over .

As our first event of the year we were all super keen to see what Rotorua would bring and it didn’t disappoint.

The highlight for the team had to be our pocket rocket Tracey Hannah grabbing a 3rd in Pumptrack and a 2nd place in the DH.

Sam Reynolds took out a 10th in the Slopestyle that will be remembered for incredible riding but more the spirit shown in celebrating the life of the late, great Kelly Mcgarry. We will never forget you.

Alex took a great 8th place in the DH and this bodes well for the Rookie Pro heading to Lourdes. Andrew Neethling was close behind in 10th with Mick Hannah having a big crash but still taking 13th place! Mick was 4th at the qualification and his split time before his crash was close to the podium times.

All the riders have real speed this year and we are excited to see what they can do at Lourdes.

Of course team manager Fabien Cousiné wanted in on the action too and took a fine 3rd place in the Air DH , 20th place in DH and top 16 in pump track.

The team will now begin the EWS series and World Cup DH in the coming weeks – so stay in touch by checking back.
