Crankworx Is Back In Whistler This August 11th - 20th

Crankworx is back in Whistler this August 11 - 20, 2017 for ten full days of mountain biking. Experience the world famous festival that celebrates the adrenaline packed sport of mountain biking in Whistler.

Crankworx Whistler Big Air

Whether you want to participate in one of the many competitions that are happening during the ten days or just spectate, there’s something for you do to at Crankworx. Rub shoulders with industry leaders and some of the biggest names in riding as you check out bike demos, slopestyle competitions, and so much more. This is your chance to ride some of British Columbia’s best trails with people who love mountain biking as much as you.

Crankworx Whistler Pump Track

All ten days of the festival is jam-packed with events and activities for riders and guests in Whistler Village to take part in. Many of the demonstrations and races are free to watch. Not sure where to watch the events from? Well, the easiest place is probably Skier’s Plaza. Whistler’s Skier's Plaza offers spectators to view most of the races and events without trekking up the mountain.

You can watch the CLIF Bar Dual Speed & Style, GIANT Dual Slalom, and Red Bull Joyride right from the plaza. You can also watch the Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized, Garbanzo Downhill, Fox Air Downhill, and the Official Whip-Off World Championships at the finish line in Skier’s Plaza. Plus, for all the events that you can’t see first hand at Skier’s Plaza, there’s a giant tv screen set up to show the crowd events on top of the mountain so you won’t miss any of the action.

Other events during Crankworx can be viewed at Base 2 and the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, accessible by hiking up the hill or purchasing a lift ticket. You can also head on over to the Whistler Olympic Plaza if you want to see the Dirt Diaries Film Contest, the Deep Summer Photo Contest, or the Red Bull Women in Action Sports Panel. Take a break from all the downhill madness and get a glimpse into the mountain biking world through some amazing filmmakers and photographers.

There’s so many more events happening at Crankworx in Whistler this year it’s hard to keep track of them all. To learn more about what’s happening during Crankworx you can check out the official Crankworx website or view the full schedule.
