Tristan Lemire Scores Air DH Youth Win While Connor Fearon Slides into the Top Ten

Fresh of his Junior win at the US Open just two weeks ago, Quebec based wunderkind Tristan Lemire again found himself on the top step, this time in the 13-14 youth category of the Air DH on Airline yesterday. His time was fast enough to have had him 3rd equal in next grade up too. We’ve said it before, but you need to keep your eye on this kid. His mentor, and Kona Gravity Teammate, Connor Fearon also dropped in yesterday for his first Crankworx event and rode his Process 165 in the Top 10, finishing… well… in 10th place.

With three more events on Connor’s plate, including the Canadian Open and the Dual Slalom, we will still be seeing plenty more of him over the next few days.

Connor keeping it low and fast in practice.

It would not be the Crankworx Air DH without an A-Line party train. Aggy representing on his 165!

Enduro Rider Alexander Kangas is no stranger to A-Line and has raced his fair share of World Cup DH events, so entering the Air DH was a no-brainer. 35th is not what he wanted but in a stacked field of the worlds fastest and most stylish pros, its nothing to complain about.

With both carbon and aluminum frames, fender mounts, internal cable routing, hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless ready tires, and flat mount disc brakes and thru-axles, the Jake is ready to race, whether it’s to first place, or to the bar after a big day in the woods.

Super Jake
The Super Jake takes our renowned Cyclocross platform to an elite level and is the weapon of choice for world-class pro CX racer Kerry Werner.

Major Jake
The Major Jake is the perfect bike for the serious racer that is still looking for something they can take on long cross-training rides.

Jake The Snake
The working man’s privateer steed, the Jake the Snake is the go-to bike for Cyclocross racers and hard core commuters alike.
