Well, that's a wrap on Crankworx Innsbruck 2019. But before you cut off your wristbands, pack up your bikes and hang up your helmets, let's take a walk down memory lane and relive some of the best moments from the week.
Mons Royale ambassador Peter Kaiser clinched the win in this event earlier in the year at Rotorua and he was hoping to maintain a podium streak.
With Speicher Lake and Nordkette framed in a beautiful backdrop, the event began with several missteps, as athletes struggled to clear the jump. Eventually, everyone got into a rhythm and the sending began.
Kaos Seagrave took the top spot, white zebra-print pants and all. Peter Kaiser, despite cracking his frame during his last whip, earned himself third place.
It was the day we'd all been waiting for; the Mons Royale Speed and Style. The Mons crew started the day off with the Mons Royale "Become A Knight" mini-bike jousting competition. The winner walked away with a head-to-toe Mons Crankworx outfit and the crowd left amped for a different sort of dual - Speed & Style.
The beer was flowing in the Mons tent as friends and fans turned out to watch the best all-around rider emerge victorious. Mons rider Peter Kaiser saw his way through to the semi-finals, but unfortunately was beat by Sam Reynolds.
The Day Four event, the legendary Innsbruck Slopestyle was postponed due to high winds. Therefore crowds got a double whammy in the form of slopestyle and the iXS Innsbruck Downhill on the final day of the festival.
The day kicked off with the Downhill, where riders thrashed their way down the steep rugged slopes of Mutters. Mons friend Caro Gehrig earned fourth place and Kiwi hero Brook Macdonald claimed the win for the men.
But then along came Emil Johansson. Sidelined for much of the competing year in 2018, Emil shook crowds with a comeback at Crankworx Whistler. Now he's back with a vengeance. He took first place over Rheeder in the first round.
It's a rare thing to see Rheeder work for a win these days, but he certainly clocked in for the second round. The Canadian emerged victorious over the young Swede, but the lines have been drawn. Emil is back.
