Crankworx Cairns at Smithfield MTB park joined the party in October 2022, and oh what a party it was. In its first year, the first Australian stop on the Crankworx World Tour distinguished itself for sculpted dirt art and rowdy rainforest tracks, wild racing, and arguably the most raucous crowds to ever grace a Crankworx (save perhaps Heckler’s Rock). Oh, and shoeys. This tropical paradise meets the ultimate experience in mountain biking? That’s Crankworx Cairns for you.
