We're days away from the beginning of Crankworx 2009, a week of wonder, wild parties, ridiculous riding, great music, eclectic fashion and good times in Whistler, British Columbia.
It all kicks off on 8 August with the dual slalom and The Block Party, a free family-friendly bash focusing on the premiere of the latest Kranked film, Kranked: evolve. The rest of the week is jam-packed with huge events; here’s a run down of what’s going down:
- Sat 8 Aug - Dual slalom and The Block Party/Kranked Revolve premiere
- Sun 9 Aug - Monster Energy Downhill, Ken Quon Cross-Country
- Tues 11 Aug - Womenzworx presented by Sombrio Girl
- Weds 12 Aug - Air DH, Saint Deep Summer Photo Challenge
- Thurs 13 Aug - VW Trick Showdown, Deraylor Music Festival
- Fri 14 Aug - Giant Slalom, Kidsworx, Deraylor Music Festival
- Sat 15 Aug - Canadian Open Enduro, Monster Energy Slopestyle, Trialsworx, Canadian Cheese Rolling Championships, Deraylor Music Festival
- Sun 16 Aug - Canadian Open DH presented by Kona
Unfortunately your man on the ground (me) had a very fast and painful meeting with aforementioned ground not a day ago and managed to dislocate his left shoulder. But not to worry – this just means I have even more time to get all the gossip, hot new products, rider interviews, pro bikes and general insider info.
So get prepared because if you're not here, we’ll make it feel like you are! Check out the action at www.crankworx.com.
