Crankworx continues to deliver an endless summer with one last round of racing in 2021. The global series is kicking off Summer Series New Zealand with an old classic. A three-stage Super D race in Alexandra is the first day of two weeks of racing on the South Island.
With Summer Series following the final Crankworx World Tour stop in Rotorua, there’s a handful of Canadians sticking around for one last kick of racing before returning to a cold Canadian winter. Casey Brown, Louise-Anna Fergeson and the reigning King and Queen of Crankworx, Bas van Steenbergen and Vaea Verbeeck are all on the roster for a full slate of racing.
Crankworx Summer Series New Zealand follows the format set out here in Canada at the B.C. Summer Series in 2020. A roaming festival-meets-road trip vibe sees athletes travelling around to race several events in different venues. This time, around New Zealand’s South Island. After the Alexandra Super D, Crankworx circus heads to Wānaka, Cardrona and the iconic hills of Queenstown.
No overage road trip, this event brings together 86 top riders between top international pros, aspiring young CWNext athletes and some local amateurs.
