Whistler, British Columbia is a Mountain Biking Mecca and home to the world’s largest MTB festival, Crankworx. This week-long celebration of all things off road is held each summer and is by far one of the gnarliest sporting events on the planet. A totally wicked spectacle, Crankworx involves the world’s best riders punching trails in BC’s finest alpine countryside. Throughout the week, thousands of riders shred the mountain, while getting super sideways on massive ramps. Events like the GIANT slalom, Canadian Open Downhill and the world famous Whip Off comp, provide action packed entertainment for spectators and riders alike. This year’s Whip Off comp was won by a 14 year old local, Finn Iles, who defied gravity and hung his MTB out super sideways, to beat some of the world’s most insane riders.
