Why Jill Kintner Ditched Crankworx NZ to Focus on the Tasmania EWS

When you're the best at what you do and you do that thing year after year, it's easy to want a new challenge. The MTB world was quite surprised to see the multi-time Queen of Crankworx, Jill Kintner, ditch the 2019 Crankworx New Zealand event. But now we know why - she is trying something new, racing her first-ever Enduro World Series in Tasmania. It sure seems like Jill would have tried this years ago, but she's patient and calculated with her decisions. Sven Martin caught up with Jill to get the scoop on this move and considering the footage of the trails we've seen from Derby, it seems like a no-brainer to us.

Jill with Glenn Jacobs from World Trail. World Trail is responsible for bringing the magic to Derby. He's also a long-time friend of Bryn and Jill. It's fitting then that this be the venue for Jill's very first EWS.
