Coming to the Whistler Mountain Bike Park August 2009:

Whistler Mountain Bike Park will be transformed this August 8th to 16th as it hosts both pro-riders and amateurs for the Kokanee Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival .  This action packed festival is sure to please, featuring world class competition and a prize purse exceeding $100,000.

This year’s festival will include past crowd pleasers such as the dual slalom, where competitors face off in head-to-head races, as well as two new events; a Best Trick competition and a dual Giant Slalom.  With pro-riders competing for over $80,000 in cash and prizes, this year’s event is sure to bring out world class competition.

Check out the latest gear at the Expo and Demo areas

The Expo is the place to be if you are interested in picking up some new gear, or seeing the latest from industry reps and event sponsors.  The Expo will start at the base of the mountain and wind its way through Whistler Village.  Demos of the latest XC, Freeride and Downhill bikes and components will also be available for anyone with a driver’s license and credit card.

The opening of the Festival will be celebrated with a community kick-off party featuring a free screening of Radical Film’s latest Kranked-Revolve.  Other non-biking events to look out for are the Canadian Cheese Rolling Championships on August 15th, and the Deraylor Music Festival from August 13th to 15th.
