The Team Behind the Legendary Crankworx bike Festival give it a go in Europe…
Over the past eight years Crankworx Whistler, as an event, has become a household name amongst mountain bikers. It is the pinnacle of mountain bike festivals, the grand daddy of them all, bringing together all the different disciplines and the top athletes from all over the world.
They all support each other, have a go at other disciplines and generally just have a good old time riding and racing bikes and drinking beer together. It is like a big gathering for everyone to catch up, shoot the shit and exchange war stories about their seasons and what they have been up to until now. Almost like a summer break for bikers, catch up and ‘refresh’ themselves and recharge their batteries for the rest of the season.
