Crankworx Innsbruck 2021: Watch (Red Bull TV), Play (Medal Predictor) and Get In on the Action (City Expo)

Officially, today marks the first day of the Crankworx World Tour for 2021. Unofficially, it’s a family reunion for the mountain bike world. Over the next five days of Crankworx Innsbruck, 424 athletes, including 284 of the world’s top pro riders, will do what they haven’t been able to do since March of 2020: gather together and compete.

“Crazy to think the last international race I competed in was March 2020 in Rotorua. This is probably the longest break from international travel and racing for me since I was 16. Very excited to get out there an pick up where I left off. Thinking back to 2020, the last Crankworx Slalom race, I was able to take the top step. The goal for me is always to win. That’s why I race. So hoping for more of that this week.” – Kyle Strait

Adding another layer to the excitement, today marks the launch of Crankworx Medal Predictor on redbull.com.

The contest gives those following the action a chance to test their Crankworx Slopestyle knowledge by predicting the riders who’ll be top three in Innsbruck. Fans can race for the top and compete against each other, and a panel of experts. Crankworx Medal Predictor contests will run for each Slopestyle contest across the Crankworx World Tour in 2021, with great prizes up for grabs all season from Crankworx and its partners, including a STATUS complete bike.
