Bikes & Beats at the Crankworx Innsbruck Gravity Nights
Crankworx without side events and parties would be a bit like schnitzel without the breadcrumb coating – good all the same, but somehow missing an essential ingredient. That’s why in 2018 visitors to Crankworx Innsbruck can once again look forward to a huge range of activities both during and after the sporting competitions to make sure that their Crankworx schnitzel tastes better than ever!
Charge up your batteries and activate your energy reserves – there are just three weeks to go until the start of Crankworx Innsbruck! “Preparations for Crankworx Innsbruck are in full swing and we are looking forward to welcoming both locals and international guests alike to five spectacular events at Bikepark Innsbruck. We have also been working with local partners and associations to come up with a great range of side events and parties,” explains Georg Spazier, head of the organizing team behind Crankworx Innsbruck, innsbruck-tirol sports GmbH.
Yoga on the shores of a mountain lake, a strength and release session powered by BASEFIVE, loads of contests like BunnyHop and Crazy Outfit as well as an Expo Area showcasing all the latest innovations from the world of mountain biking – Crankworx Innsbruck 2018 really offers something for everyone. For the first time, female riders can look forward to a number of ladies-only side events looking at all aspects of mountain bike riding and maintenance. Food trucks serving delicacies and cool drinks from around the world will be on hand to fill hungry mouths. For more information about the side events going on at Crankworx Innsbruck click HERE.
