CRANKWORX ROTORUA GOES LIVE ONLINE

ROTORUA, NEW ZEALAND, November 4, 2014 – With just five months to go before Crankworx hits the Southern Hemisphere, fans can now find some hotly anticipated information online to start gearing up for the kick-off to the 2015 mountain biking season, from March 25 – 29 in Rotorua, New Zealand.

Kiwi freeride legend Kelly McGarry says having the Crankworx festival in Rotorua is a huge step forward for New Zealand mountain biking, bringing the spotlight to the local riding scene.

“Crankworx festivals draw the world’s best riders from all aspects of the sport and it puts them together in one big mountain biking arena to ride and compete – it’s all streamed live on the net so everyone worldwide can watch the action go down and see how we do it down here,” he says.
www.crankworx.com/rotorua has gone live this week with all the details on what to expect in Rotorua, how to get there, where to stay and how to be a part of the action, as well as a whole range of information and videos showcasing what the world’s biggest mountain biking festival is all about.

The regional tourism organisation, Destination Rotorua, has also gone live with a web page – RotoruaNZ.com/crankworx and is sharing more details about things to do and see while in New Zealand, as well as providing insight to the riding with videos showcasing the Rotorua terrain.

Skyline Rotorua’s Mountain Bike Gravity Park will be the main event location for Crankworx Rotorua and will host Round One of the Crankworx Downhill and Dual Speed and Style Series, Round One of the Enduro World Series, the Rotorua Pump Track Challenge and the first stop in the brand new Crankworx event Triple Crown of Slopestyle.

With course development underway you can check out the current Skyline Gravity Park layout, plus lots more information about the venue, at Skyline.co.nz/rotorua/Crankworx_Rotorua.

Crankworx Rotorua director Tak Mutu says with a whole lot of information going live, it’s a good time to start booking accommodation, locking in travel arrangements and handing in the leave slips.

“We’ve already heard about some accommodation being sold out for the week of Crankworx, so it’s worth getting onto planning the trip – these online resources will be the perfect place to start,” he says.
www.crankworx.com/rotorua will continue to evolve as more details of the event get locked in – stay tuned for more information about the official programme, ticket sales and sponsors, plus some other key announcements.

“Another way to stay in the loop is to ‘like’ the official facebook.com/crankworx page,” says Tak.

Crankworx Rotorua is the third international event for Crankworx, adding to the current festivals in Whistler, Canada and Les 2 Alpes, France.
