Kokanee Crankworx has announced the largest wad of cash in fresh Canadian dollars in the festival’s five-year history which totals more than $70,000 in crisp new notes. I’m quite tempted to learn a super tucked 360 flip off a large timber construction myself, 30000 big ones is a lot of wonga.
The VW Trick Showdown has been added to the Kokanee Crankworx line-up this year. The event will take place in Whistler Mountain Bike Park’s Boneyard and will include two, 45-minute free-ride sessions on different features in the lower park. The format for this event is winner-take-all, but also includes a cash-grab for on-the-spot-sickness (not illness related) recognition. The head judge and announcer will hand out up to $100 to individuals who leave that on the spot impression during the contest.
Monster Energy Slopestyle 30,000.00
VW Trick Showdown 8,000.00
Jim Beam Air Downhill 6,000.00
Monster Energy Garbanzo DH 6,000.00
Dual Slalom 6,000.00

We will be picking two winners from our 2 weeks in Whistler competition this week, so keep your eyes peeled you could be going to Crankworx this year.
