For the superstitious out there, Friday the 13th truly lived up to its reputation as an unlucky day.
Gusting wind and a strong tailwind made the conditions too dangerous to complete the competition for the Teva Best Trick at Crankworx Les 2 Alpes. Safety is of the upmost importance so the decision was made to hold the Teva Best Trick on Saturday, July 14 at the same time as the Crankworx Les 2 Alpes Slopestyle.

The Qualifiers for the Slopestyle could not be held either. As such, all riders will advance to compete in the finals on Saturday. The Crankworx Les 2 Alpes Slopestyle, presented by iXS and the Teva Best Trick will take place from 8:30am-10:30am PDT.
