Brendan Fairclough Wins Crankworx Dual Speed And Style
On August 11, 2012 the Dual Speed & Style presented by AVID had it’s Whistler debut. Britainâs Brendan Fairclough, a rider widely recognized as one of the most well-rounded racers on the DH circuit, ended up in the final with Spainâs Andreu Lacondeguy, one of the worldâs best known freeriders. Lacondeguy, who actually has history battling the clock as a DH racer, gave Fairclough a run for his money but in the end pushed too hard and ended his race in a spectacular cloud of dust while the British World Cup racer sailed over the finish line.
In the battle for third place two freeriders were pit against each other; American Kyle Strait who qualified first yesterday, and Swedenâs Martin Soderstrom. Soderstrom was pulling out Joyride-worthy tricks in every heat but in the small final was bucked on a roller and fell, giving an easy finish to Strait.
