WHISTLER, British Columbia (BRAIN)—Kokanee Crankworx finished its seventh year as the biggest yet. Though excitement has wrapped for this year, there is plenty to look forward to with next year’s event, now less than 10 months away, July 16 to 24, 2011.
Event dates were selected based on the 2011 UCI World Cup Downhill schedule to ensure continued attendance from world class downhill racers, according to a press release.
Growing on the success of the live webcasts, introduced in 2008, Kokanee Crankworx stepped it up again this year, ensuring that every single event was available to not only the vast on-site audience, but online viewers as well. Add record attendance estimates and this year’s festival went down as the most watched Kokanee Crankworx to date.
“Kokanee Crankworx 2010 succeeded once again in capturing the soul of mountain biking. With so many events over the nine day stretch in almost every discipline, this year’s festival exceeded our expectations in every aspect. And the positive feedback keeps coming in,” said Jeremy Roche, general manager of Kokanee Crankworx.
