Kidsworx & Familyworx at Crankworx Whistler

Kidsworx at Crankworx in Whistler

The first two days of Crankworx have been full of fun and exciting events. The opening celebrations started off with the family-friendly Kidsworx Village Crit, followed by the mens’ and womens’ Fat Tire Crit.

The Kidsworx Village Crit is an awesome opening event showcasing the sports’ youngest athletes, from ages 2 – 15. My daughter was super stoked to compete in the Ages 7-9 race and had a ton of fun on . See official results of the Fat Tire Crit on the official Crankworx website.

Following the Fat Tire Crit, Five Alarm Funk took to the stage as the opening band for Crankworx. This energetic, 10-piece band was an awesome musical experience to behold, and had everyone in the crowd dancing in the open-air Whistler Olympic Plaza.

The big event of Day Two was the CLIF Bar Dual Speed & Style brought 15 riders to the finals – an event that is one of the rider’s favourite at Crankworx. The unique mix and format of disciplines allow races and slopestyle athletes to bring their strengths together to battle it out for supremacy.
