TELUS OPTIK™ TV FEATURES THE CRANKWORX COMMUNITYTRIOLOGY OF SHORTS CONTINUES WITH LOCAL FAMILY’S STORY

Mountain biking together, and enjoying the Crankworx festival, keeps the Goldstone family tight

WHISTLER, BC Dec. 11, 2014 – Telus Optik TV showcases the Crankworx experience through the eyes of a family today with the release of a second episode of this Community Programming series focused on the Whistler mountain bike community.

Ron Goldstone and Miriam Bailey’s 10-year-old son, Jackson, is already a sponsored rider, but mountain biking is clearly more than a means to competitive success for this crew.

In 8 Awesome Things with The Goldstones, the family of dirt enthusiasts tells the world why life from vantages like the Top of the World, a run in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, is so “awesome.”

“Living where we do in B.C. here, it’s really easy for us to get together and go for a quick trip down the BMX track or a quick cross-country loop… It’s just nice to be able to spend a lot of time doing stuff that I think everyone loves in the family,” says Ron Goldstone.

The Goldstone kids, Bailey and Jackson, compete in Kidsworx, the Crankworx competitive events for those under age 15, and the entire family takes advantage of the festival’s 10-day run to spend some quality time enjoying their life’s passion together.

The three-part program was made possible by a Community Programming Production Support grant from TELUS Optik Local Community Programming. The Series highlights the many ways Crankworx draws new mountain bike enthusiasts into the fold, allowing riders of all levels and abilities to improve their skills, connect with the scene and, generally, push the boundaries of what is possible to do on a bike.

All three episodes of the program will be available for free on demand on TELUS Optik TV.
