Crankworx enters its sixth year bringing the stoke to the France with the launch of Crankworx Les Gets. This five-day epic celebration of jaw-dropping riding sees the gravity mountain bike scene descend on a key European riding hub, bringing its competitions, new product, demo bikes, music, photography and parties along for the ride.
Crankworx Les Gets opens with one raucous showdown of dirt-churning, whip-off action. Forget the rodeo’s bucking broncos and the high-flying acrobatics of the circus. When a great rider hits a long, clean whip, it is a smooth horizontal 45-degree salute to our world of endless sun, big air and dust-spitting attitude. Get ready to revel in some tire-swinging steeze as Crankworx Les Gets revives the Official European Whip-Off Championships presented by Spank.
