Every summer spectators come to this spectacular event which transforms Whistler village into a free ride mountain bike festival like no other in the world! Whistler Blackcomb’s famous mountain bike park is bustling with riders gathering to push their skills to the limits and crown new legends. Crankworx has an action packed line up of events to include Dual Speed and Style, Garbonzo Downhill, Air Downhill, Dual Slalom’s and Best Trick. The energy and vibe of the crowd while watching these competitions is an amazing experience for all ages!
Not only is this 10 day festival about the adrenaline bike park competitors but the village comes alive with the FREE opening weekend concert series. This year Crankworx brings in some great acts including recent Juno award winners the Arkells to kick off the opening weekend in Olympic Plaza! Other bands you can enjoy are Young Empires, Jets Overhead and Said the Whale! For those interested in the Whistler nightlife August 11, 2012 is the start of the Bud Light Cranked Up DJ Series running throughout the festival!
With the Sundial Boutique Hotel’s unbeatable location steps away from the bike park you won’t miss a thing! Our Mountain View Suites are a spacious accommodation and comfortable location to catch all the action. If you want to stay in Whistler from August 10 – 19 and try the bike park so you can test your skills we are happy to arrange that for you! Maybe you’ll get a chance ride with the pro’s, and if not you will be amazed to see them in action during Crankworx 2012.
