Crankworx Looks Back on 3 Years of Innsbruck Action with Week of Virtual Celebrations

Jun 9, 2020
by Official Crankworx  


In June, the mountain bike calendar is traditionally firing on all cylinders: Crankworx, World Cup, EWS, etc. etc. Riders are in the groove, the stories for the year have started to unfold, and content is coming in fast and furious into our Pinkbike feeds. This particular June is a unique one in our history, and we’re all looking to the fall and the jam-packed calendar that awaits. But that doesn't mean we can't tap into the stoke in the meantime.

In this week that would have seen the only European stop of the Crankworx World Tour going off, we’re taking the opportunity to re-live the action that’s gone down in Junes past, connect with some of our fave athlete and industry folk, and get the party started ahead of Crankworx Innsbruck 2020, rescheduled to September 30-October 4.

Ever wondered what goes into creating some of the courses built to challenge the best riders in the world? Tom Hey of Elevate Trail Building is one of best in the biz, and the mastermind behind many of those that’ve shaped both Crankworx Rotorua and Crankworx Innsbruck. We'll chat to Tom about how he honed his craft in trailbuilding, then took his skills on the road to the greatest heights in the sport.

Tune in live on Crankworx’s Instagram channel, or catch the replay on IGTV.

What brings legends from across disciplines like Kyle Strait, Martin Söderström and Tomas Lemoine together? That’s a lineup that undoubtedly belongs to Speed & Style, and the 2019 Mons Royale Speed & Style Innsbruck was definitely one to remember. Join this third and final Facebook Watch Party for the week, hosted by Mitch Chubey and local boy Peter Kaiser who’re both known for going fast, doing tricks and bringing it all together when it matters most. They’ll be commenting as the action unfolds and there to share the excitement with you.
