Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle in Memory of McGazza

Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle in Memory of McGazza



The Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship’s first stop launches from the dirt gold and amidst the mighty Redwoods of Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park. New Zealand’s grand master of the discipline, Kelly McGarry, and his building partner, Tom Hey, designed and built one of the best slopestyle courses in the world before McGarry passed away in 2016. The event was renamed in his honour.

The Rotorua event is a special one for many reasons. Like every Crankworx Slopestyle, it is the marquee event of the festival, bringing together the elite of the discipline eager to prove themselves and start their season off with a bang.

The Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle in Memory of McGazza will be broadcast LIVE on all your devices exclusively on Red Bull TV, as well as on and Pinkbike.
