Battles for King and Queen of Crankworx about to kick off, strong field of women in Speed & Style set to take flight, and deep start list of DH racers ready to send it from Innsbruck June 16-20

WHISTLER, B.C., June 3, 2021 – Preliminary start lists have been released for Crankworx Innsbruck, June 16-20. On deck: a deep field of international riders across the board. It’s a very good vibe after a long period of uncertainty in the worlds of racing and events.

“It’s been 15 months since we’ve been able to do a full international Crankworx, where all the athletes could travel. The excitement and anticipation from the athletes, as a result, is on another level,” says Darren Kinnaird, Managing Director of the Crankworx World Tour. “We’re seeing examples of that on Instagram, in registration numbers, and in fans’ reactions as we get closer. I’m blown away to see what athletes are doing to prepare…and the things they’ve been working on in the past 15 months. I can’t wait.”
