Oh yes. Live racing is back, friends.
Today through August 14, Crankworx is bringing the action from its home in British Columbia to you. We're pioneering the return of live mountain bike racing in a made-for-T.V. (that's right, no spectators), multi-stop series showcasing some of the best that B.C. has to offer.
Over the next three weeks, the CLIF Crankworx Summer Series will bring you:
25 of the world’s best mountain bike athletes.
Three iconic destinations.
Four races per stop.
12+ hours of MTB action.
All culminating in one overall CLIF Crankworx Summer Series title.
Here's who we'll be following as they hit the road and race in Kicking Horse, SilverStar and Sun Peaks.
Each stop will include include four disciplines (Downhill, Dual Slalom, Enduro, and Air DH), with riders competing in an “all-in” format. Basically, everyone races everything.
Coming your way: live broadcasts, event highlights, weekly recaps, and more. The CLIF Crankworx Summer Series will be available right here on Pinkbike, crankworx.com, and EDGEsport (available to view through TV, online and digital services).
Helping fans to follow along with the action safely from home will be the Crankworx Summer Series Fantasy league. Fans will be able to build their dream roster for a chance to win some great prizes from our sponsors. Details at fantasy.crankworx.com
The CCSS will also feature Crankworx Connect, an online expo featuring live Q&As from Crankworx athletes on-site and around the world, giveaways, tech talks, and more. Crankworx Connect will be available on crankworx.com as well as on Crankworx’s YouTube and Facebook channels.
Stay tuned for Pinkbike Primers, broadcast schedule details, course previews, bike checks, tech roundups, and moooooooore. So very much more.
All this to say: your Pinkbike feed is about to explode.
Get stoked. Be safe. Watch #CrankworxFromHome.
