The ultimate experience in mountain biking is back!
Crankworx Whistler is a 10-day celebration of all things mountain biking in Whistler, B.C., home to Canada’s largest bike park.
As part of the Crankworx World Tour, Crankworx Whistler brings together the best mountain bike athletes to compete in elite-level, adrenaline-charged competitions, including the RockShox Canadian Open DH on the all-new downhill course in Whistler Creekside and the infamous Red Bull Joyride Slopestyle event.
The event takes place in Whistler from July 21 - 30, following stops in New Zealand, Australia, and Austria. While the athletes might be all “grit-and-grind,” you certainly don’t have to be.
