Crankworx is known as much for its “get amongst it” spirit as it is for pro-level competition. There’s a little something for everyone, regardless of where on the spectrum of experience they fall.
But while opportunities are limitless, space is not. Every year, every event at Crankworx Whistler sells out. Get in early to reserve your spot at the start gate in 2019.
The same goes for young riders looking to get a taste of the Crankworx action.
Once again back and continuing to go big in 2019 is the full roster of Kidsworx events.
Kidsworx was born in Whistler, and has since matured and flown the coop, expanding to all stops on the Crankworx World Tour.
2018 saw the highest numbers to date across the board in Whistler.
