Born in Whistler, B.C. in 2004, Crankworx has evolved into a multi-stop international festival series, bringing together the best mountain bike athletes to compete in elite-level competitions in a variety of disciplines, as well as hosting races for amateurs, Kidsworx contests for young riders, participatory events, and celebrations of mountain bike culture, all while showcasing amazing destinations.
Crankworx Rotorua took flight in March of 2015, becoming the first Crankworx festival outside of North America and Europe. Since then it’s played host to some of the most memorable moments in Crankworx history. Each year, the festival kicks off the international competition season, bringing the best in the world to get amongst the lush forests and famed New Zealand dirt gold.
