COMING TO CRANKWORX SUMMER SERIES CANADA – SILVERSTAR? HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Crankworx Summer Series Canada is officially kicking off the season at SilverStar Bike Park this week, July 28th – 31st! It’s sure to be an action-packed weekend full of epic riding, live music, a village market, and more. Here’s a round-up of all you need to know if you are coming onsite this weekend.

Crankworx Summer Series Canada is building the trail for athlete progression, holding spots in the same category and discipline for the top two finalists of the Air DH, Pump Track and Dual Slalom events.

You will not want to miss watching these seasoned pros, pinned locals, top amateurs, up-and-coming youngsters all battling it out for their chance on the podium, and an entry to Crankworx Whistler.

The Title Slopestyle at SilverStar Bike Park competition will also be awarding the highest ranked rider that is not already qualified for Red Bull Joyride a Wildcard Entry or as we are calling it, their “golden ticket” (yes, it’s really going to be a giant golden ticket!!) to the 10th Anniversary of Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler.

Sticking true to the spirit of athlete progression, we are stoked to partner with SilverStar Bike Park to bring Crankworx Slopestyle Session at SilverStar Bike Park: a women’s only, invitational slopestyle session on Monday, August 1st and Tuesday, August 2nd. Crankworx Slopestyle Session at Silverstar Bike Park is an invitational development session aimed at creating a path for women in Slopestyle mountain biking.
