Kona Riders Throw Down at Crankworx Whistler

Andreu Lacondeguy wins Best Trick during the slopestyle, Bass nabs a very impressive 4th place amidst insane competition, Joe Smith scores 8th in the downhill-with a crash no less, and Kona Grassroots riders haul home all kinds of brass. It was an action packed week all round, stay tuned for more updates.

Andreu snags $6,000 for the Crankworx Slopestyle VW Best Trick award. He threw a nutty 360 flatspin seatgrab indian air that he had just learned in the foam pit last week. The first time he ever attempted it on dirt, in front of 20,000 people, he stuck it. Photo: Joe Sales
