The first event of Crankworx New Zealand, in Rotorua, kicked off today with the “Whip Off” event.  It was a wild affair, with some insane demonstrations of bike control, cajones, as well as a couple of cringe-worthy slams.  The pictures will do more than enough to explain how things went, so here’s how the podium:  Ryan Howard, Connor Fearon,  Bernard Kerr, Dave McMillan, Remi Morton, with Casey Brown taking the women’s, and Brandon Jackson taking the honorable mention for the Men’s.
