Crankworx and Whistler Blackcomb celebrate the creative spirit, and storytelling culture of mountain biking in this video throw-down that’s produced some iconic content over the years.
Six filmmakers bring us the ride of our lives this summer, showcasing a slice of one athlete’s diary. These four to six-minute videos begin production early summer and hit the big screen during Crankworx Whistler. Teams must include the Whistler Valley and Whistler Mountain Bike Park in a quarter of their film—from there it’s free creative licence. They choose the size and scope of their team, their supports, their geographical boundaries. This is the blank canvas of the Crankworx culture beat, shining the spotlight on shooters on the cutting edge of their game.
Location: Whistler Olympic Plaza – Free spectators’ viewing at Whistler Olympic Plaza and bike valet will be available.
