Crankworx Innsbruck 2019
This picturesque destination continues to solidify its reputation on the international circuit. Now the only European stop on the Crankworx World Tour, all eyes will be on Innsbruck come June (12 – 16) to see how the battles that kicked off in Rotorua play out, and how the stage will be set heading in to Whistler. Following on the heels of UCI World Cup DH racing in Leogang, the world’s best are expected to flock to Crankworx Innsbruck for its world-class courses, great vibe and unequalled setting.
The 100% Dual Slalom Innsbruck will make its debut in 2019, with course details expected to roll out in the weeks leading up to the festival. Also returning: riders’ favourite courses for Crankworx Innsbruck Slopestyle and Mons Royale Speed & Style Innsbruck, tight action from the RockShox Innsbruck Pump Track Challenge, rough and raw battles in the iXS Innsbruck Downhill presented by Raiffeisen Club, and arguably the most scenic Whip Off contest in the world, the Official European Whip-Off Championships presented by SPANK.
“We are delighted that Crankworx will be taking place in Innsbruck for a third time. The event here will be the only European stop in 2019 and will feature an additional discipline,” explains Karin Seiler-Lall, head of Innsbruck Tourism. “Last year around 20,000 fans were on hand to watch the world’s best gravity bike athletes in action. Spectacular photos of Innsbruck with incredible tricks and enthusiastic fans went around the world. Crankworx is an important driver that will continue to push the city of Innsbruck to develop an even more comprehensive infrastructure for mountain biking.”
Georg Spazier, CEO of the organising committee and head of innsbruck-tirol sports, explains what fans can look forward at the only European stop of the 2019 Crankworx World Tour: “In addition to more mountain bike action with the world’s best riders, the third edition of the event in the Bike Innsbruck will feature a diverse programme of activities and a unique atmosphere with something for everybody – side events, parties, Kidsworx workshops for youngsters as well as an expo area with a huge range of international exhibitors and delicious food.”
