A whistle-stop visit to Sydney beforehand, Anthony got to take in the local sights and hang out with fellow-frothers from Polygon Bikes and Bikes Online, where they hit the local trails for some jumps and flips, and loads of fun!
Next stop, Crankworx Cairns. The world’s best riders were welcomed to a work of dirt art that involved five brand new tracks carved into the red dirt. The event promised much and delivered on all levels. Cairns was a beaut!
The Speed and Style event was hotly contested, as the riders threw it all down to make it to finals with plenty of big moves. The weather could not have been any better for the finals, with nothing but perfect riding conditions and a crowd filled with stoke.
After qualifying in eighth place coming into finals, it was Tomas Lemoine, who could not be beaten on the day. Anthony Messere went on to score the last spot on the podium, taking third spot. What a comeback!!
After an epic comeback in Cairns – Messere will be on the start line for the final stop of the World Tour at Crankworx Rotorua. Stay tuned for Part 3 of Anthony’s comeback at ‘the soul of Crankworx’.
