Taking the Giga to a Crankworx Downhill podium

Fresh from the podium at Crankworx Roturua, we take a look at Dan Booker's new Giga 297.

Dan's been on a New Zealand adventure on a break from being one of the head trail builders at Tasmania's Maydena. Traveling, surfing and clocking up some miles racing too. After piloting his Giga to a 2nd place finish at the Pheonix Enduro (with a huge crash) a couple of weeks ago, he headed to Roturua, New Zealand for Crankworx.

His bike is a seriously trick piece of kit, thanks mainly to his support from Sram, Australia and Nukeproof finishing kit. Like the rider that spotted Dan's talents and raised them to us at Nukeproof, he runs flat pedals.
