WHISTLER, BC – The annual Dirt Diaries movie competition has become as much a part of Crankworx as the actual competitions. Crowds gathered in the Whistler Olympic Plaza last night for the screening of six five-minute contenders. In this winning "Sickest Edit Ever" from Matt Dennison and IFHT, Kyle "Norbs" Norbraten saves Whistler Mountain Bike Park from its greatest threat yet—rollerbladers.
WHISTLER, BC – Considered by some to be the definitive event of slopestyle if not all of Crankworx, the Red Bull Joyride drops this Saturday in Whistler. Brandon Semenuk, 2014 champion, has one last chance to upset Brett Rheeder's shot at sweeping the Crankworx World Tour. Can he do it?
WINDHAM, NY – The only US stop of the World Cup, Windham 2015 was one for the books. Aaron Gwin and Rachel Atherton took the pro podiums for men and women respectively, but put considerable distance between their box mates, and the young Loris Vergier spent considerable time in the hotseat. This raw highlight reel by the Parkin Bros. showcases the speed and power these racers put down up close and personal.

VIRGIN, UT – Tickets for the 2015 Red Bull Rampage go on sale today.

Red Bull hasn't specified a number, but on-site spectator access will be limited.
WHISTLER, BC – Speed and Style. Perhaps no other event captures two of the purest elements of mountain biking, often found to be at opposite ends of the spectrum by most. When it comes to gravity fueled competition, many riders consider themselves racers or freeriders, but it takes a certain kind of talent to compete in both, let alone at the same time. It's no wonder then that list of competitors from the Whistler stop of Crankworx reads like a roster of mountain biking's modern pioneers.
With the summer months dropping off the calendar one by one and the days growing shorter, many of us begin to go into bike park panic mode. In many parts of the country, even our local trails aren't accessible all year long, let alone the lift-served gravity goodness that has become a beacon of the summer months for those seeking a downhill fix.
