Red Bull Joyride Whistler Crankworx

As you probably already know, Crankworx is back this August 11th to 20th, 2017 to celebrate mountain bike riding in Whistler. This ten day festival draws the best athletes in mountain biking and offers spectators a chance to watch some of the world’s top MTB competitions live in person.

Crankworx isn’t just for the avid mountain biker, it features events, demos, and activities that everybody can get into and most are free. From more information about Crankworx you can head over to our previous blog post – Whistler Crankworx 2017

Whistler Red Bull Joyride Crankworx

The Red Bull Joyride is set to be the final event of Crankworx mountain bike festival. Starting at 10:30am on Sunday, August 20th, Red Bull Joyride will take over The Boneyard below the Whistler Mountain Bike Park as riders compete in the largest slopestyle competition in the world. Whistler’s course has been described as the pinnacle of slopestyle courses, which it should be, because this is where slopestyle all began. Athletes will get the chance to ride a combination of dirt jumps, smooth transitions, and original features, on this world-class track.

Come out and watch as riders as they battle to come out on top in one of the most challenging events at Whistler Crankworx. Join the crowd at Skier’s Plaza to get a good view of the finish line and watch from the big screen set up in the Plaza as well. Or if you can’t make it on race day you can tune into Red Bull TV where it will live streamed starting at 10:30am on Sunday.
