Crankworx – Garbanzo Downhill
There were 320 athletes in the pro and amateur categories taking to the 12km long course, and with a huge variety of terrain to cover and race times clocking in around three times longer than a traditional downhill race. That’s the Garbanzo Downhill Race. Bitten by mosquitoes, hungry, cold and wet, I am still happy to shoot this race. This year I witnessed lots of crashes as the spot I was taking photos at was wet and slippery from the rain we got in last couple of days.
Chris Kovarik (AUS) maintained a blistering pace in today’s Monster Energy Garbanzo DH to take home first with a time of 13:22.99, knocking last year’s winner Justin Leov (NZL) into second place with a time of 13:29.85.
