Kokanee Crankworx starts today in Whistler and will run clear through next weekend. It’s the nation’s ultimate mountain biking event with the Whistler Mountain Bike Park taking centre stage for all the action.
Kokanee Crankworx has become the authoritative free ride festival, a supercharged magnet for the world’s best riders, the definitive domestication of dirt in the service of epic endurance, supreme flow, monster air and gravity-fuelled mountain biking. The best mountain bike athletes in the world know that when gravity beckons, you simply say, yes mistress.
This weekend opens up with a concert series, then there’s the Kokanee Aftershock nightly DJ series, the Deep Summer Photo Challenge, Red Bull Joyride at Night, and parties across the village. A full schedule of concerts, competitions, and events can be found online and all of these activities are free (except for a few parties and events in the evening, where noted on the website).
From the Dual Slalom, Canadian Open Downhill, and Teva Best Trick Showdown, to the Canadian Cheese Rolling Championships – there will be no shortage of action over the next ten days.
Kokanee will also be presenting a silent disco (tickets $10, Kokanee prizes) July 22nd and the official wrap-up party at Garibaldi Lift Co on July 23rd. I have a prize pack to give away to a reader and their mountain biking friend of choice. The prize pack includes:
