Update from Crankworx, 6am PST Saturday, March 24: Working with the weather we’ve had, we’ve changed the order in which our competitors will be racing tomorrow in the Crankworx Rotorua Downhill. Doors at Skyline will open at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, so go down early and get amongst and watch your favourite Pro Women and Men drop into one of the best downhill tracks of the year. Pro racing kicks off at 9:30 a.m., with the first Pro Women dropping in at 10:12 a.m., and local boy Louis Hamilton kicking off Pro Men’s racing at 10:36 a.m. Pro action will wrap at 11:30 a.m., just in time to grab some lunch in the expo and check out some great vendors.
Be sure to stick around in the afternoon, as Amateur and Junior DH racers take to the course to practice from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., before racing from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
We’ve also added a Slopestyle Practice session to the schedule from 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., with the opportunity to go live from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
In the case that inclement weather prevents us from running the Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle in Memory of McGazza on Sunday afternoon at the time above, we’ll aim for Monday morning Slopestyle practise from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., with a live show from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Update from Crankworx, 8pm PST Thursday March 22:
With some weather issues on the horizon, we’re carving out the best window to pull off an amazing event for our athletes and fans. With that in mind, we’re opening doors early at Skyline. Come down from 8 a.m. [Friday at 12 noon PST – Ed.]
onward, with the Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle in Memory of McGazza to go live sometime between 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. [Friday at 2 pm PST - 7:30 pm PST – Ed.]
The exact start time will be dependent on the weather. Plan to come early, enjoy the festival vibe. For those watching from home, webcast start time on Red Bull TV and crankworx.com
will be announced ASAP.
