Tomas Slavik brings gold and silver medal from Crankworx
Last week was just all about the final stop Crankworx World Tour in Whistler B.C. where the best riders in the world were fighting for the overall title King Of Crankworx. Defending champion Tomas Slavik was coming into Whistler from 6th position and even though he did great results he was able to climb up through the ranking “just” to 4th spot which is still amazing result. He was able to take silver medal at Speed N Style and then he was second rider in Crankworx history taking back to back gold in Dual Slalom!
“Final round of Crankworx is always tricky one because you can always gain or loose a lot because there is so many events. I was coming into Whistler out of 7th spot and I was fighting my way up through the ranking as hard as I could, but at the end I was able to push myself to 4th spot, which is still great result in between such a prestigious company of riders racing Crankworx. At the end I ended up 2nd at Speed N Style and was able to take back to back gold in Dual Slalom, so pretty stoked about Whistler! Its been a long Crankworx season with lots of ups and some downs for sure, but couldn’t be any happier. Learnt a lot and will try to get the best out of me for 2018 Crankworx season. My performance in Whistler also underlined my great shape before Worlds 2017 in Fourcross, which starts this friday in Italy. Its always a special moment racing for your country, your flag and fighting for the rainbow jersey. Was preparing a lot and Crankworx showed me Im on the good way :) Keep your fingers crossed for me this friday, I will keep you updated. Thank you Crankworx for amazing Tour!”
