WHISTLER, B.C May 6, 2020 – The adrenaline. The action. The rivalries. The athletes with their skill, style and game-time energy. Cameras clicking. Fans buzzing. The brattle of chainsaws. The smell of victory champagne.
These are the hallmarks of Crankworx festivals and competition, and things that are missing from our worlds at the moment.
As we all shift to working from home, going for mellow, local rides with the members of our households, reimagining “normal” life, and dreaming of when we can all get back to what we know and love, Crankworx has decided to do some time travelling to tap into all those feels we’re missing.
And the world is invited.
Crankworx is excited to be hosting four Crankworx Watch Parties in May.
Starting this Friday (Saturday for those in the Southern Hemisphere), fans are invited to join their bike-minded friends from around the world on Facebook to re-visit some classic Crankworx broadcasts together, live, along with some special guests who’ll be coming along for the ride, active in the comments section of the video and there to answer questions.
Here’s what and who’s coming, when:
Friday, May 8 (12 p.m. PST): Crankworx L2A Slopestyle 2014, with special guests Anthony Messere and Antoine Bizet
Friday, May 15 (12 p.m. PST): Red Bull Joyride 2014, with special guests Geoff Gulevich and Cam McCaul
Friday, May 22 (12 p.m. PST): Crankworx L2A Slopestyle 2015, with special guests Nicholi Rogatkin and Tom van Steenbergen
Friday, May 29 (12 p.m. PST): Red Bull Joyride 2015, with special guests Thomas Genon, Tomas Lemoine and Logan Peat
Fans can RSVP here: Crankworx Facebook Watch Parties
Broadcasts will be replayed live around the world on Facebook, giving fans the opportunity to comment as the action unfolds, chat with fellow bike fans, as well as the pros.
Re-broadcasts will also be available on Crankworx’s Facebook page to check out after they wrap.
