First pro winners: Mitch Ropelato (USA) and Jill Kintner (USA)
2019 pro winners: Tommy Zula (USA) and Jill Kintner (USA)
Whistler Bike Park Trails: Crankworx Pump Track at Base 2 on Blackcomb Mountain

Ultimate Pump Track Challenge Location: Base 2 on Blackcomb Mountain – Access this event at Blackcomb’s Base 2 via FREE access to the Excalibur Gondola. Upload is accessible to foot passengers from Skiers Plaza. There is also FREE parking at Blackcomb Base 2 in Lots 6 & 7.

The Pump Track sees two riders line up head-to-head and drop into a maze of berms and rollers, each racing to cross the finish line first. The catch? No pedaling allowed.

Chains off. Game on.

Strength, momentum and skill are the name of the game in this arena where pedal-less power reigns supreme and a single mistake can cost the victory.

2022 WILDCARD EVENT

Crankworx Summer Series SilverStar Pump Track will be a wildcard event for entry into the Whistler Pump Track.

  • The top two, not pre-qualified finalists in U15, U17 and U19 will be awarded a guaranteed free entry in the same age category at Crankworx Whistler 2022
  • The top two, not pre-qualified finalists in the Open category of Pump Track will receive a wildcard entry into the Pro Invitational category at Crankworx Whistler 2022
  • Details to note:
    • If one or both of the finalists do not take this opportunity, the entry is not passed on. It is not transferable.
    • If a finalist is already registered in the same race & category at Crankworx Whistler, we will refund their entry fee.
    • In the event that the finalists in Silverstar compete in a combined age category, those finalists will have to be entered into the correct age category in Whistler
      • For example, if a 16-year-old wins the U19 Pump Track in Silverstar because of combined age categories, that rider would be entered into the U17 Pump Track category in Whistler (not the U19 category).
