Crankworx Whistler

When Crankworx rides into town, Whistler BC makes its annual transformation into the Colosseum of freeride mountain biking. In a stadium of dirt sculpted out of raw mountain, a hedonic convergence of riders and bike lovers from all around the world gathers to crown champions and revel in the mountain biking revolution.

Home to hundreds of game-changing moments in freeride mountain biking’s history, Crankworx is a 10 day festival to epic endurance, supreme flow, monster air and vertical-dropping riding. A monument to gravity, a testament to passion. The phenoms, the veterans, the aeronauts, the tricksters, the speed-freaks, the enduro-maestros – all the best mountain bike athletes answer gravity’s call. It is time to pay homage, at the place legends are formed.
