Event description

Description

Giant ferns above, dirt gold below – get ready to get amongst some quintessential Rotorua terrain and kick off international downhill racing season at the all-new Redwoods Downhill race at Crankworx Rotorua. Part of the first weekend of Crankworx action, the race will take place on Sunday, March 18 in the famed Whakarewarewa Forest, following one of the area’s classic tracks. The Taniwha Trail (also known as the National Downhill) was originally built in 1994 by Rotorua’s MTB pioneers and features the full gamut of all that’s good in a downhill track, from technical steeps to big jumps and drops. The addition of the race to the Crankworx Rotorua roster adds another option for downhill specialists to make their mark on the first stop of the Crankworx World Tour, while giving racers, and fans, an opportunity to get loose and loud amidst the towering Coast Redwoods that dominate the area’s famed forest landscape.

CRANKWORX : ENTER THE REALM OF THE EXTRAORDINARY
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).
