Crankworx Cairns | The Mammoth Australian MTB Event

It’s been a red hot minute since we had an international level event in Australia and we’ve never had a Crankworx stop. With less than a week until Crankworx Cairns kicks off in Australia’s North, it’s time to have a look at the details….

Crankworx is an institution when it comes to mountain biking festivals. It’s a quintessential blend of dual slalom, speed and style, pump track, downhill and finished off with a heavy dose of slopestyle – in short it’s everything awesome about mountain biking.

Cairns is the idyllic location that will bring a blend of tropical Aussie lifestyle and balls to the wall mountain biking. A brand new course has been built by some of Australia’s best trail builders and there’s little doubt that the week will be one to remember in Aussie mountain biking history.
