Crankworx World Tour – Les Gets 2016
From 15th to 19th June 2016
The Crankworx World Tour is going to Les Gets in 2016, this is the fifth time the Tour will be in the Alps and it promises to be a fantastic event. With four days of incredible riding, expo’s, product demonstrations, music and parties!
Competitors accumulate points over the course of the tour with the series winners named at the final event in Whistler. A series winner is the competitor who has the most points at the end.
The Tour features four series titles :
Crankworx DH Championships
Pump Track Challenge Series
Speed & Style World Championships
Crankworx Slopestyle Championships
As the marquee event of Crankworx, Slopestyle accrues an additional accolade. The Crankworx Slopestyle Championship will be awarded to the athlete with the most points after three events, but if a rider can win all three, they will earn a new title, the Triple Crown of Slopestyle.

“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,”
Darren Kinnaird, Crankworx World Tour general manager.
