Crankworx World Tour

Rotorua Air DH presented by Bosch

Set on Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park’s Mr. Black, the Rotorua Air DH presented by Bosch challenges racers to send it on 32 jumpable features while charging for the win on Rotorua’s dirt gold. The trail was crafted as New Zealand’s answer to the Whistler Mountain Bike Park’s A-Line, arguable the most famous trail in the world.

While this event attracts some of the top names in Downhill and Enduro, it’s designed to get the Rotorua bike community out and into the international Crankworx racing scene. So come get amongst the tables, step downs, step ups, and more, alongside some of the best from both the local and international racing scene.
