CRANKWORX WHISTLER 2012 WRAPS AS BIGGEST AND BUSIEST EVER
With the 2012 version of Crankworx Whistler in the books and event organizers already leveling their sights on next year’s historic ten-year anniversary of Crankworx, every Whistler loc should be high-fived for putting on a stellar show. The 10-day freeride event and festival welcomed the world and proved how wicked awesome Whistler is.
In today’s (Sept. 26) press release highlighting the Crankworx 2012 recap video, Crankworx GM Darren Kinnaird has nothing but praise for the biggest, baddest, and most successful Crankworx to-date. “From record crowds of over 146,000 who attended Crankworx Whistler 2012, to the number of people tuned-in to experience live webcasts powered by Red Bull Media House and watch Pinkbike’s video on demand segments, we brought the action of Crankworx Whistler to more people than ever before. This year’s event was a game changer with highlights including Steve Smith’s ‘triple-crown’ DH wins, to a major upset in Red Bull Joyride that saw Belgian rider Thomas Genon ride away with first place and $25,000.”
If you missed Crankworx 2012, are looking to re-live the event, or want to share it with your friends, make sure to tune-in to a two-hour TV special on NBC next Saturday, October 6 devoted to Crankworx and the Red Bull Joyride Slopestyle event.
