Casey Brown and Jesse Melamed wrapped up a big week in Golden, B.C. with wins in the Maxxis Kicking Horse DH. The event was the final race in the second of three weeks of Crankworx Summer Series racing.

While downhill wrapped up the week above Golden, it was the enduro racers taking their turn to shine. Melamed was joined by Squamish’s Rhys Verner, an enduro specialist for Kona Gravity Racing, on the podium.

On the women’s side, all-round talent Casey Brown landed another Crankworx win, keeping her in the run for the overall Summer Series title.
