Tickets available now for the ultimate mountain bike experience in Innsbruck
Crankworx Innsbruck is THE ultimate mountain bike experience in 2019. Tickets go on sale today for this five-day extravaganza bringing together the international freestyle mountain bike elite and featuring plenty of side events plus a chilled festival vibe. This year for the first time there will be not only Standard Tickets available but also VIP Tickets giving holders access to exclusive benefits at Crankworx Innsbruck.
Crankworx is without a doubt one of the most spectacular events ever to be held in Innsbruck. Since its debut in 2017 it has become a regular fixture on the Crankworx World Tour. This year the world’s top freestyle mountain bikers will gather at Bikepark Innsbruck from 12 to 16 June for what will be the only European stop on the 2019 Crankworx World Tour.
So what is Crankworx all about? It’s a fun, friendly mountain bike festival for all the family where the best riders in the world compete in a range of disciplines and push each other to perform even more incredible and gravity-defying tricks cheered on by a diverse crowd of all ages, from grandmothers to hardcore bikers. The festival site also includes an Expo Area where the top bike brands present their latest products and give visitors the chance to test them. Another highlight of the five-day festival is Kidsworx Innsbruck presented by Tiroler Tageszeitung – a special programme of events, activities and workshops designed for children and teenagers. Hungry visitors will find a selection of food trucks on site serving culinary creations from around the world. And, last but not least, there is time to hit the trails yourself, watch the incredible competitions and simply enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

Which sporting disciplines will feature at Crankworx Innsbruck 2019?
Crankworx Innsbruck will kick off this year once again on Wednesday (12 June) with the Official European Whip-Off Championships presented by SPANK held by the reservoir at the top of Bikepark Innsbruck, where fans can look forward to sick tricks and a simply breathtaking mountain backdrop. The action continues on Thursday (13 June) with two fan favourites back to back: the 100% Dual Slalom Innsbruck, which sees two riders go head to head on a course full of twists, turns and kickers, followed by the RockShox Innsbruck Pump Track Challenge, where it is all about getting around the track as fast as possible without pedalling. Friday (14 June) welcomes the Mons Royale Speed & Style Innsbruck, an event in which both time and tricks go towards determining the winner. Saturday (15 June) will again host the discipline featuring the most insane tricks, the Crankworx Innsbruck Slopestyle, while Crankworx Innsbruck wraps up on Sunday (16 June) with the action-packed iXS Innsbruck Downhill presented by Raiffeisen Club.
