Invitational: Crankworx Rotorua AirDH

Our up-and-coming 10-12 year old shredders (born in 2010, 2011, 2012) will have a chance to test their mettle on Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park’s Mr. Black. This invitational only category to the Crankworx Rotorua AirDH will follow the same course as the adults except for two mandatory B-line options. You will get to hit those soon enough, young shredders!

We are not currently accepting applications.


For safety and insurance reasons, we have limited this race to an invitational format with 10 entries in order to select participants that we know can comfortably clear all of the permitted features in Mr. Black with speed in a race format. The limited number of entries in this trial category will help us prioritise safety and asses the skills of this age group for future events.

Riders must have previous experience in a race environment with high-end skills on jumps and steep technical trails. The applications for this event, require the following information to be collated and sent in one email to rotoruakidsworx@gmail.com:

  • Sign-off from a riding coach or instructor acknowledging your child’s riding ability
  • Two videos of your child completing two separate runs comparable to Mr. Black
