Tons and tons of riders are already flocking in from around the world to participate in this huge competition. Whistler is the final stop of a four city world tour that spanned the globe. 

The festival takes place from August 11th to 20th and the town is already preparing for another giant party. All mountain biking events are free to watch and there are plenty of joyride and downhill competitions that take place in the village and on the mountain.

While there are plenty of events going on during the day, the night life will be even crazier, as local clubs and bars will be holding free shows with free cover, giveaways and prizes. Garabaldi Lift. Co, Moe Joes and Garfs are a few of the many clubs hosting parties for the massive events. 

If you've been to Crankworx before, you know what a wild party it turns into - and if you've never been, there's no time like the present to join the mayhem. Parties and events will be taking place across the village every night of the festival (including weekdays).
