The Hutchinson Dual Climb, described facetiously by the athletes as “a little grueling”, took place today at Crankworx Les 2 Alpes. Grenoble local Quentin Derbier’s stamina and technique was rewarded with first place and 800€. He keeps the Dual Climb title for the second year in a row after winning every single heat on the way to the top of the ladder.

Next up on the Les 2 Alpes’ schedule of events is the Whip Contest on Tuesday, July 9 17:30-19:00 CEST. This rider-judged event has no rules and is modeled after the extremely successful Official Whip Off World Championships at Crankworx Whistler. Developed by Sven Martin, a mountain bike photographer who knows his whips, this event brings big air and style to the masses.
