Event Details

Guns blazing, laser-focused, full-throttle on the adrenaline. Skill triumphs over gravity in this race down Mount Ngongotaha. Riders will catch one last look at Lake Rotorua then drop into a technical quagmire of smooth off-camber hardpack broken up by step-ups, bridge-drops and a rock garden to keep the race interesting. The course culminates over the Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park’s summer luge course with racers flying into a crowd-pleasing step-up, step-down, table combo demanding monster air. The challenge? Finish in under three minutes.

The Crankworx World Tour is where ordinary humans perform the extraordinary and launch into the realm of the unimaginable. From slopestyle ninjas to downhill champs and enduro experts, sideways steeze-masters, slalom slayers and pump track pros – they all ride faster, climb further, fly higher, and go bigger than what was once thought to be possible, taking on the world and the challenges set before them with seemingly superhuman power and passion. In 2018, Crankworx brings their feats of two-wheeled magic to four stops around the world. Come along for the ride as the Crankworx World Tour travels to Rotorua, New Zealand (March 17-25), Innsbruck, Austria (June 13-17) and Les Gets, France (June 20-24), before bringing it home to Whistler, Canada for the 15th year of Crankworx competition (August 10-19).
