|It’s been an empty season and I am so pumped to get back on the contest circuit again. Not being able to travel outside of Sweden these past few months has allowed me to focus more on my riding… basically just an extended off-season with better weather and lots more bikes. I hope the event will be a good end to this crazy year.—Emil Johansson|
Slopestyle, Pump Track and Speed & Style will all be invitational events.
Meantime, registration is now open for Dual Slalom and the DH. Details: https://www.crankworx.com/athletes/
|We are so thrilled to be able to continue the momentum of live racing we started with Summer Series, this time in Europe and on Red Bull TV. With so many of the world’s best athletes flocking to Europe for the fall, we’ll have the opportunity to bring together a stacked field of riders from different disciplines to see some great racing. We’re confident that, working with our team in Innsbruck, we’ll be able to put together a safe event and an amazing show for our fans around the world.—Crankworx World Tour Managing Director Darren Kinnaird|
|With an eye on the global situation and in a close collaboration with the local authorities, we are happy to announce that we’ll be able to make Crankworx Innsbruck happen in 2020! With strict health and safety guidelines we have found a way to offer our international and local athletes the chance to participate in the Crankworx season finale here in Innsbruck. As we know, the athletes are on fire to get back between the tape, so we’ve been working hard on a solution all summer long. It was a requirement to reduce the participants on-site to a minimum, so our full focus will be on sport and getting the action live to our fans around the globe. We sincerely want to thank all our partners for their continued support and hope to return to the festival as we know it for our next edition!—Georg Spazier, head of the Crankworx Innsbruck organizing committee|
Crankworx Innsbruck’s #1 priority is to bring live mountain bike racing to the world, with rider, staff and community safety top of mind. But with eased travel restrictions, the risk of resurgence is real. That’s why organizers are taking every precaution with procedures to protect all involved.
With this in mind, Crankworx Innsbruck will be following these five steps to safe competition:
