Crankworx BC

Crankworx BC Will Start on 22 September

by 0

With the cancellation of Crankworx Whistler due to Covid, the Crankworx World Tour will make its second stop in British Columbia. Crankworx BC was originally due to take place at the start of September, but organisers have shifted the date. It will now take place from 22 September to 2 October.

Touring across BC, the event will take place over ten days. There will be nine events, five of which you can check out live on Red Bull TV.

Here’s what the organisers have to say about the event:

The stage is now set for some of the world’s best, and fans around the world, to get a taste of all-time fall-time in British Columbia. The dates for Crankworx B.C., originally set for earlier in September, have been moved to September 22 (the first day of fall) through October 2. The change was made to create more ease for international athletes who will be travelling to B.C. to compete in this second stop of the 2021 Crankworx World Tour.

The world is opening up, but there are still some intricacies to travel when it comes to international competition. In order to make it as smooth an experience as possible, we’ve opted to push our dates by a couple weeks in September. As a bonus, this will give us the opportunity to share a taste of fall in B.C. with our athletes and the world, which is often some of the best riding of the year.

In addition to the overall date change, the timing of the three stops and the list of events have been released. Overall, Crankworx B.C. will include 10 days, nine races/contests and six different disciplines, with five events broadcast live on Red Bull TV.

Locations:
Disciplines:
  • Downhill
  • Dual Slalom
  • Air Downhill
  • Speed & Style
  • Pump Track
  • Slopestyle

The final event on the list is set to wrap the 10 days of competition with a bang. The Slopestyle contest will be the second Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship (SWC) event of the season. The new course at SilverStar has been in the works since the summer of 2019. It combines the vision, creativity and muscle of Brett Rheeder and Matt MacDuff.

At the time, it was to build a progressive course with added smaller features blended into the bigger, more typical slopestyle features. The idea with this was to have a course more welcoming to less experienced riders. However, as time has gone by we were faced with some limitations with the construction. We will no longer be adding the smaller features into the mix. The course will, however, be built for maximum progression. Slopestyle courses should be built where the riders don’t have to think about the course but rather on their tricks and runs being put together and it’s my goal to make sure that happens.

Crankworx will be releasing the full schedule and the list of qualified and invited riders in the coming weeks. Riders will include King and Queen contenders who are on the hunt for the overall titles, along with Slopestyle riders qualified to compete in the SWC.

Coverage will include live racing and competition on Red Bull TV, event highlights, behind-the-scenes action, and more. The full scope of the event (spectators, etc.) will be determined closer to September as organizers assess what can safely be added.

Not too good about writing about myself, but not so bad at writing about other things. There was a time that I hated bikes, but then they became my life. Wouldn't be the person I am if I hadn't been on this journey. Here's to bikes, drinking tea and everything that comes with life on two wheels. I'm Lauren, I like bikes and writing about them. Always trying my best and up for adventures.
