Crankworx Rotorua brought nine jam-packed days of gravity-mountain biking to the Southern Hemisphere for its fourth year, and sadly we couldn’t make it.

So we’ve compiled the edits that showcase just how damn good it is! In case you didn’t know, it’s the first stop of the Crankworx World Tour, hosted in the Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park and amongst the famed redwoods in the Whakarewarewa Forest trail network, with events spilling out all over the city. It launches all four Crankworx Series competitions, unofficially kicks off the international downhill racing season, brings the riders out to play for the first whip-off of the season, and establishes the first rider capable of winning the Triple Crown of Slopestyle for the year.

With a full complement of Kidsworx events, concerts and its own showcase of the sport’s creative side, Rotorua is the place to experience how the Kiwis revel in the cult of the fat tire. Yep, you wish you ere there too! So, kick back and watch the highlights from what looked ot be one big MTB party!
