As we’d previously reported, Redbull’s massive Crankworx MTB festival relocates to Les Gets for summer 2016. But back when we announced the move from Les 2 Alpes, we didn’t have many more details to offer.
The three-stop Crankworx World Tour will visit Les Gets between 15th & 19th June 2016. That’s the week before the 2016 Pass’Portes du Soleil, bringing an early start to the summer season for Les Gets.
“Back in the ’80s, Les Gets was one of the first regions in the world to use its lifts to shuttle riders, and its 2004 UCI World Championships is the stuff of legends. This is a location steeped in the culture and history of our sport and we are thrilled to be adding the region to the World Tour,” says Darren Kinnaird, Crankworx World Tour general manager.
