The Crankworx Rotorua slopestyle competition is fast approaching, a chance for some of the sport's most talented aerialist to unleash their arsenal of tricks in front of thousands of cheering spectators.
The course in Rotorua resembles a set of extra-large dirt jumps, with a couple drops into smooth landings thrown in for good measure, which is why the many riders have chosen hardtails over full-suspension slope bikes. Take a look at this selection of bikes that you'll see getting airborne and inverted at every opportunity once the event gets underway. On Saturday, April 1, 2017 (or March 31 depending on your time zone), tune in to Pinkbike for the live broadcast.
