Born in Whistler BC, Crankworx is a 10-day multi-disciplinary mountain bike festival celebrating epic endurance, supreme flow, monster air and vertical-dropping riding.
This year, August 7-16, the downhill, slopestyle and enduro legends of the world return to Whistler to battle for freeride glory. Nowhere else will you see competitors of this caliber gathered in one place.
Combined with a weekend Concert Series, the GoPro Dirt Diaries, the Deep Summer Photo Challenge, Kidsworx and Familyworx, exhibitions, demos and clinics, parties and après, Crankworx Whistler truly encapsulates the best of summer on the West Coast.
Here’s a great shot of the kids giving it their all at Kidworx and Familyworx 2014.

And what makes any event Fabulous is the VOLUNTEERS! Crankworx organizers are looking for additional volunteers this year.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, and those who are between 16 and 18 must have a parent sign a waiver.
Those who volunteer with receive a Crankworx T-shirt, and for every 12 hours worked, a voucher for the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. At the wrap-up party, all volunteers will receive the chance to win from a pool of draw prizes.
Those looking to help out can sign up at www.crankworx.com/whistler/volunteer.
Foodworx is back for this edition of Crankworx to support the Whistler Community Services Society’s food bank.
Local businesses are being asked to solicit food or funds for the food bank, which typically experiences a lull in donations during the summer months.
The winning organization, determined by weight of food donated per employee, will receive a Call of the Wild ATV tour for four, which was donated by Canadian Wilderness Adventures.
Last year, the campaign brought in 755 pounds of food and over $7,000 to the food bank. Thornhill Real Estate Group topped all businesses in 2014.
