Last month we reported that Redbull’s Crashed Ice is to visit Avoriaz this winter for a round of the coveted Riders Cup. And it seems the local area is most definitely on Red Bull’s radar at the moment as they’ve just announced that Crankworx, a massive freestyle mountain bike event usually held in Les 2 Alpes, moves to Les Gets for the next three years.
Crankworx is a week-long celebration of mountain biking, attracting a global audience and almost 20,000 visitors to the resort. Expect to see trick demonstrations, huge music events and freestyle and slopestyle competitions across Les Gets, in addition to manufacturers expos and stacks more associated events including the Official European Whip-Off Championships.
Dates for Crankworx Les Gets 2016 have yet to be confirmed, last year’s Les 2 Alpes event took place between 9th and 12th July, but as soon as they’re announced by Les Gets we’ll let you know!
