Crankworx Whistler cancelled for 2021, set to return August 2022

Friends, it is so. This party will not be going ahead this year.

Today we share the news of the cancellation of Crankworx Whistler 2021.

Our Managing Director Darren Kinnaird had this to say about why me made the decision we did:

“To our riders, core media, festival partners, and fans, we know it’s been tough. Mountain biking is both a career and a passion for many, so to lose an event that I know means so much to so many people…it’s been tough for everyone. We have been exploring our options for Crankworx Whistler 2021 since last summer. We held on to the possibility for as long as we could, while working on alternatives. The province of British Columbia is on a good track and is in the process of lifting restrictions, but unfortunately there’s not enough certainty or lead time to pull off the festival for this year. That said, we’re hard at work on some exciting things to get riders and fans excited this summer, so watch this space.”

B.C. is currently at Step One of a four-step reopening plan. Travel within the province is restricted, and Canada’s borders remain closed to non-essential travel.

But stay strong, mountain bike friends! Good times are on the horizon.

Crankworx Whistler is already on the calendar for next year.

August 5-15, 2022, Crankworx Whistler is back, and you’re invited. The 10-day celebration of all things mountain biking will include the Whistler stop of the Enduro World Series, and the 10th anniversary of Red Bull Joyride.

Stay tuned for some exciting updates on that soon as the hype starts to build ahead of Red Bull Joyride 2022.

Meantime, planning for both the kick-off and finale of the 2021 Crankworx World Tour is in full swing.
