King & Queen of Crankworx

This multidisciplinary battle wages all season long, with results tabulated after the dust has settled on all Crankworx World Tour stops. Athletes aim to collect as many points as possible for a shot at claiming the crowns and earning the additional $20,000 paycheque.

Triple Crown of Slopestyle

The Triple Crown represents the near-impossible dream in sport. In horse racing, it is the winning trifecta of pulling down the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont grand prizes – a feat so rare American Pharoah cracked a 37 year drought when it won the crown in 2015. In baseball, a player is in Triple Crown contention when they’re pulling the top three averages – the highest batting average, home runs and runs at bat – in a single year or a pitcher is “pitching triple crown” if he’s leading in wins, strike-outs and earned average runs. Surfers must master the waves of the three toughest events in the world in a sport already dominated by the near mythical demands of gargantuan waves.

As the marquee events on the Crankworx World Tour, the stakes were always high at Crankworx Slopestyle contests, but the festival had its sights set higher. In addition to offering a prize for the Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship at the end of the season, the Triple Crown of Slopestyle gives one extraordinary athlete the chance to pull in an additional $25,000, making it the biggest prize in mountain biking. In order to win, a rider must earn first place finishes in three Crankworx Slopestyle events in a season. Launched in 2015, the trophy went untouched until 2018, when it was finally claimed by American Nicholi Rogatkin in Whistler.

All Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship events are broadcast LIVE on Red Bull TV and crankworx.com.
