Crankworx World Tour

Rockshox Rotorua Pump Track Challenge presented by Torpedo7

Riders, get ready to master the maze and show the world what you’ve got. Over the years, Rotorua’s Pump Track has played host to some of the most epic battles of the festival, with racers taking to the track at sunset to battle for chainless supremacy. This ultimate stripped-down skill showcase sees competitors duel head-to-head, without a single pedal stroke, on a course which demands near-perfect flow and explosive force.

  • Time trial qualifiers format. A combined time of one run from each course will be taken. Time permitting, riders will have the option to do one rerun of either of their two runs. If, for whatever reason, a rider elects to do a rerun, that run-time will count, regardless of whether the previous time was better.
  • Top 32 Pro Men and top 8 Pro Women advance to the elimination finals. Riders will be seeded for the dual elimination finals based on the time trial results.
  • CWNEXT: Top 16 riders from each age category will be seeded for the dual elimination finals based on qualification results.
  • Pro: minimum 26-inch wheels
  • CWNEXT: minimum 24-inch wheels
  • Full-face helmets are mandatory (any certified 1 or 2-piece)
  • A maximum differential will be established, calculated as 10 per cent of the average seeding run time. A rider may lose a run by no more than the maximum differential.
  • In the event of a tie, the winner of the last run is the overall winner of the heat
  • Chainless format
  • Safety recommendation: remove chain ring
