***Update: Sunday gates open early for more awesome. The excitement starts at 8AM.****

Crankworx Rotorua is back for six days of action, from 19 to 24 March in 2019.

The first day will give spectators free access to the Dual Slalom event on Tarawera Rd; a gateway to some of Rotorua’s best riding.

From Wednesday 20 March to Sunday 24 March spectators will require tickets to access the final five days of the event at Skyline Rotorua. Events at Skyline include: Air DH, Dual Speed & Style, Whip-Off, Pump Track, Slopestyle, plus Kidsworx and other participatory events.

This is the official site for purchasing tickets to the final five days of the event.

If you’d like to add on a VIP pass, you’ll need to purchase a General Admission ticket first and after the payment is confirmed, a link will be sent to your email with an option to additionally buy a VIP pass upgrade through a second transaction.

Bike and bike park uplifts will be sold separately onsite at Skyline Gravity Park.
