Congratulations to Tommy Wilkinson, and crew, winners of the 2016 Best In Show, chosen by a panel of judges. And a second big congratulations to Ben Haggar for pulling in the Peoples’ Choice Award. Each took home $3500.
Five photographers. One wildcard contestant. Three days in the epicentre of the Crankworx World Tour: Whistler, British Columbia. This is one slide showdown to remember. When Deep Summer lights up Olympic Plaza, it leaves even the most seasoned Whistlerites looking at mountain biking’s West Coast haven with fresh eyes.
Watch all five shows and count down the days till we’re deep in summer once more. We’re already hard at work planning our 2017 show!
After three attempts to win over the voters, Whistler’s Chris Pilling earned himself the WILDCARD spot in the competition, as selected by Pinkbike readers. He has been a semi-professional photographer for five years, but a shooter for many more, and was looking to take his career to the next level when he hit the Deep Summer stage. His most amazing to that point? A shot of a rock-rollover first executed by Wade Simmons on The Malamute in Squamish, B.C., the picturesque Howe Sound waterway in the background and a 15-foot rock shelf over a 200 foot drop up front. Chris is from Calgary, Alberta and has been living in the Whistler area, shooting his heart out, for two years.
