The name is a little misleading because the Crankworx dual slalom is no bigger than most dual-slalom courses (and not even close to the Sea Otter). It gets its name from the event's sponsor, Giant Bicycles. Now that this is clear, it was Troy Brosnan and Melissa Buhl who won their Pro divisions.
In the Pro Men category Troy Brosnan (AUS) took first place, Luca Shaw
(USA) came in second and Bas Van Steenbergen (CAN) finished in third.
Troy’s Giant Dual Slalom win was fresh off of a second place finish in
Thursday night’s Ultimate Pump Track Challenge. In both events Troy made
it to finals, racing in every heat of each competition.
“It feels amazing, I’m coming back trying to have fun and get in a little training before Worlds,” said Troy Brosnan, winner of Giant Dual Slalom. “It was a good night. The crowd was pretty big and that helped.”
In the Pro Women category Melissa Buhl (USA) took first place, Micayla
Gatto (CAN) came in second and Steffi Marth (GER) finished in third.
“It’s been a long week with a lot of events, so I feel really good about this win,” say Pro Women winner Melissa Buhl. “This is my first win at Crankworx and I couldn’t be happier.”
