Crankworx Rotorua Downhill presented by the Professionals

Pedal to the metal, full gas – that’s what the Crankworx Rotorua DH is all about. The unofficial kickoff to international downhill racing season, this event brings together the world’s racing elite to take on Mount Ngongotaha at Skyline Rotorua. Bringing together a mix of off-camber hard packed Rotorua dirt with step-ups, bridge-drops and a rock garden, this track is a racer-favourite.

Where to spectate:
There is awesome spectator access and viewing points along most the downhill trail, which you can access through the Crankworx village at Skyline Rotorua. There will also be maps on-site for you to check out.

The best features to catch all the high-speed action along the downhill include:

  • Damm Jump
  • Fat Mans Root
  • Larches
  • Woodyard
  • Schladders
  • End jump (Saturn 5)
