Innsbruck Stats & Facts
Crankworx World Tour
The Crankworx World Tour is a multi-stop series of mountain bike festivals, bringing together the best mountain bike athletes to compete in elite-level competitions in a variety of disciplines. It began in Whistler in 2004 and has since grown into the largest event of its kind in mountain biking.
Elite riders battle at each stop for individual event supremacy and, while doing so, earn points toward an overall prize, considered by many to be the most difficult in mountain biking. The titles of King and Queen of Crankworx are awarded at the end of the season to athletes who’ve shown their multidisciplinary mastery over the course of the season, amassing points across events, festivals and continents. In addition, the tour includes five series events in the disciplines of Downhill, Pump Track, Speed & Style, Dual Slalom, and Slopestyle. Each Crankworx World Tour stop features each of these disciplines. In addition to the King and Queen of Crankworx points, athletes accumulate points across individual disciplines. At the end of the season, series champions are crowned in all five.
