bigquotesIt’s been an empty season and I am so pumped to get back on the contest circuit again. Not being able to travel outside of Sweden these past few months has allowed me to focus more on my riding... basically just an extended off-season with better weather and lots more bikes. I hope the event will be a good end to this crazy year.Emil Johansson

Slopestyle, Pump Track and Speed & Style will all be invitational events.

Meantime, registration is now open for Dual Slalom and the DH. Details: https://www.crankworx.com/athletes/

bigquotesWe are so thrilled to be able to continue the momentum of live racing we started with Summer Series, this time in Europe and on Red Bull TV. With so many of the world's best athletes flocking to Europe for the fall, we'll have the opportunity to bring together a stacked field of riders from different disciplines to see some great racing. We're confident that, working with our team in Innsbruck, we'll be able to put together a safe event and an amazing show for our fans around the world.Crankworx World Tour Managing Director Darren Kinnaird

bigquotesWith an eye on the global situation and in a close collaboration with the local authorities, we are happy to announce that we’ll be able to make Crankworx Innsbruck happen in 2020! With strict health and safety guidelines we have found a way to offer our international and local athletes the chance to participate in the Crankworx season finale here in Innsbruck. As we know, the athletes are on fire to get back between the tape, so we’ve been working hard on a solution all summer long. It was a requirement to reduce the participants on-site to a minimum, so our full focus will be on sport and getting the action live to our fans around the globe. We sincerely want to thank all our partners for their continued support and hope to return to the festival as we know it for our next edition!Georg Spazier, head of the Crankworx Innsbruck organizing committee

 You can find our CoViD-19 numers here:

experience.arcgis.com/experience/d225672c788d4847b231f1283d63aead/page/page_3

At the moment, they are comparably low, and that is how we like them. Please help us keeping them low.

 I like how they left out that half the athletes won’t be there due to travel restrictions... pretty messed up they’re even calling this a world class event

 @CRAFTY-P: Most world/universe stuff in the US include only north americans (Canadians and US). Now that mostly only US people can't attend world stuff, it's not world anymore it seems.
