Vorhersage

Die mitteleuropäische Wetterlage bleibt geprägt von sommerlicher Trägheit. Dabei überwiegt nach wie vor die Zufuhr von Warmluft. Somit steht einem weiteren heissen Tag nichts im Wege: Es ist untertags sonnig, erst im Laufe des Nachmittags nimmt die Bewölkung etwas zu, und am Abend ist mit dem einen oder anderen Wärmegewitter zu rechnen.

Tendenz

Langsam, aber sicher müssen wir uns auf unbeständigeres Wetter einstellen. Schon am Dienstag wird es nicht mehr ganz so schön und Gewitter werden häufiger.

Pros

Jill Kintner
Jill Kintner
Geburtstag: 24.10.1981
Heimatstadt: Bellingham, WA, USA
Top Disziplin: Downhill, Slalom, Pumptrack

A quick scroll through Jill ‘Jilly’ Kintner’s 31 past Crankworx podiums almost speaks for itself. A lover of bikes since the age of two, and a competitor from the age of eight when she kicked off her career on the BMX track, Kintner’s two-wheeled dominance has been apparent since Crankworx’ first days, an experience she remembers clearly, and not just for the fact that she took first place in her event: “I did the 4x, and it was raining I think, but it was one of the best events I had ever been to. Well organized, chill vibe, all kinds of stuff going on in the village, and the slopestyle seemed so surreal standing at the bottom looking up the hill. Paul Bas made a name for himself winning that event outta nowhere. I remember that the most clearly, Paul, and then Zinc who loaned him a mountain bike. I was new to the sport and really loved how mountain biking felt to be around, in nature on a mountain, and with solid people.”

With a Crankworx career that’s now spanned well over a decade, she says it’s hard to pin down a favourite moment.

“It’s kind of all the little things that add up for me; I love being in the thick of it with event pressure, the coffee shop in the morning, tweaking on bikes, seeing my friends in one place, riding all day, and then relief after each event. Crankworx is the most hectic week with 3 practices a day, and it goes by so fast, so I enjoy the moments I can with people I meet throughout the process. Taking the crown meant a lot to me as well, and the party after was all time fun with our crew.”

With the memory of winning Queen of Crankworx 2016 fresh in her mind, her goals and intentions for the year ahead are clear: “Win the events I enter, and defend my crown.”

Loic Bruni
Loic Bruni
Geburtstag: 13.05.1994
Heimatstadt: Cagnes sur Mer
Top Disziplin: DH

Loic ‘SuperBruni,’ ‘LBX,’ ‘Blair,’ or ‘Lolo’ Bruni says from the age of three, all the way to the numerous podiums he’s topped, riding bikes has always put a smile on his face. He first started competing in 2009 in U17 on the national circuits, a pursuit he describes fondly as simply “riding bikes with good friends.” In 2013, at the age of 19, he made his way to Crankworx Whistler, a place and event he says he’d always dreamed of, that did not disappoint: “It was rad. Full of people and passionate riders. So much fun, beautiful girls and cool riding.” In 2015, when Crankworx touched down in New Zealand for the first time, Bruni’s win in the inaugural Crankworx Rotorua DH presented by iXS will be etched in his mind forever as a Crankworx career highlight, though Crankworx Les Gets comes close when it comes to favourite Crankworx stop: “the trails are sick when the weather is nice and the mountains there are absolutely beautiful!” Heading into 2017, Bruni says he’s looking to mix it up at Crankworx: “I want to do as much of the events as possible. It is a really fun parallel circuit that allows us to ride more relaxed and still go fast. So to me, I’d like to go and do well on the events. I’d like to start doing some pump track – I’ve always looked at it as a really fun thing. We’ll see but I hope the crowd will come biiiiig for us on the DH.”

Caroline Buchanan
Caroline Buchanan
Geburtstag: 24.10.1990
Heimatstadt: Canberra
Top Disziplin: Pump Track, Dual Slalom

Known the world over for her dominance in BMX racing and 4cross, Caroline Buchanan has a winning history in Crankworx competition. Her two-wheeled story began at five-years-old – she then competed in her first BMX World Championships at eight. Her Crankworx career began in 2013. She describes the experience as “the best event vibe I have ever experienced.” Her Crankworx career highlight, so far, came the following year, when she stood on top of the box in the Ultimate Pump Track Challenge presented by RockShox alongside her now fiance, Barry Nobles. “We have both never won a competition at the same time so it was a fairytale night for us both to win.” After missing out on 2016 as she prepared for, and competed in, the Summer Olympics in Brazil, Buchanan is raring to go for Crankworx 2017. “I’ve never competed in a full Crankworx season before. I’m excited to be racing all four stops of the series and be a contender for the overall Queen of Crankworx title. That’s the goal.”

Matt Walker
Matt Walker
Geburtstag: 24.03.1990
Heimatstadt: Kawerau, New Zealand
Top Disziplin: Downhill, Pump Track, Speed & Style, Whip Off, Enduro

Matt ‘Waxer’ Walker has been racing BMX since he was eight-years-old, then began competing in downhill races when he was 16. At 23 he made his Crankworx debut in Les 2 Alpes: “Loved it, and have been to almost every Crankworx event since!” He’s had a strong presence since then, with his strongest showing to date this past season, where he made an early push for the title of King of Crankworx after landing himself on two podiums in Rotorua, including top spot in the Giant Toa Enduro. His season was unfortunately marred by injury, but redemption is on his mind heading into the new year, with a goal to take the title of King in 2017.

Geraldine Fink
Geraldine Fink
Geburtstag: 17.05.1995
Heimatstadt: Zurich, Switzerland
Top Disziplin: DH, Pump Track, Dual Slalom, Whip Off

Geraldine ‘Gery’ or ‘Wheeliequeen’ Fink made a commanding Crankworx debut in Les Gets in 2016, taking the third spot on the box in the Crankworx Les Gets Pump Track presented by RockShox. She started riding trials at 13-years-old, switching to downhill racing three years later, eventually making her way to Crankworx in Les Gets: “It was amazing to share the joy of bikes with all the athletes and spectators.” Despite her dominance on the pump track, she says the whip-off is her favourite Crankworx event, an event she hopes to podium in in 2017.

Adrien Loron
Adrien Loron
Geburtstag: 26.02.1992
Heimatstadt: Carpentras, France
Top Disziplin: Pump Track, Dual Speed & Style, Dual Slalom

Adrien ‘the gypsy’ Loron has been a fixture on the Crankworx scene over the past three years, but his two-wheeled dominance started long before he stormed onto the stage, and podium, in Les 2 Alpes in 2013. He started riding bikes at three-years-old, and entered his first competition at seven. At 19 made his way to Les 2 Alpes, relatively unknown, and owned the pump track, taking the top spot on the podium in the Crankworx Les 2 Alpes Pump Track Challenge presented by RockShox, a moment he describes as “one of the best things that ever happened to me.” Since then, he’s distinguished himself as one the Crankworx pump track’s most fierce competitors, taking the Crankworx Pump Track World Tour overall series win two years running, while also distinguishing himself in Dual Speed & Style. This diversity has helped him make his mark, with the title of King of Crankworx sitting just outside of his reach in both 2015 and 2016. And while France is home, and the site of his premiere Crankworx victory, he says Whistler is where the magic lies for him: “All Crankworx events are awesome but Whistler is still the best for sure. You can shred the bike park, enjoy the nature around, race on the sickest courses, party with friends. All the best.” With the momentum he’s gained over the past three years, he says he hopes for nothing more than to keep pushing forward in 2017, hopefully locking down the title that’s so far eluded him: “King of Crankworx for 2017 is my main goal, but I also want to win a Dual Speed & Style event cause I never did it before.”

Casey Jayne Brown
Casey Jayne Brown
Geburtstag: 27.10.1990
Heimatstadt: Revelstoke
Top Disziplin: DH, Enduro, Whip-Off

She’s been topping Crankworx podiums since 2007, crowned Queen in 2014, and holds the unofficial, but undisputed, title of Queen of the Whip-Off – in short, Casey ‘Browner’ Brown is a Crankworx force to be reckoned with. She started competing in bike events at 14-years-old, attending her first Crankworx two years later in 2006, an experience she describes as unforgettable: “I’d never seen anything like it before. Probably one of the most influential events of my younger years.” She says her Crankworx career highlight so far came in 2015 when she topped the box in the Canadian Open DH presented by iXS at Crankworx Whistler, her best performance in a downhill race to date. Despite her success in DH and other disciplines, she says the whip-off is her favourite event, and her stoke has translated to many wins at Crankworx whip-off competitions around the world. Heading into 2017, she’s keeping her unmistakable spirit and dedication going strong: “My goal is to focus on 3-4 events each Crankworx and have the most fun!”

Cameron Zink
Cameron Zink
Geburtstag: 08.03.1986
Heimatstadt: Reno, Nevada
Top Disziplin: Slopestyle, Speed & Style, Dual Slalom

The name Cam ‘Zank’ Zink is, and always has been, synonymous with Crankworx.

His racing career started at 9-years-old, and built until he made his way to the very first Crankworx, where he took fifth place in the inaugural slopestyle competition – an experience he describes as “incredible.”

“I saw a new sport become legitimate overnight and it showed me what I would be doing for the last 13 years,” he said.

His star rose as Crankworx grew, quickly leading to a career-defining moment in 2006 when he claimed the top spot on the box in slopestyle, his first big win. Of his many years, and many winning moments, he says his favourite came in 2010: “…landing on the last jump and riding into a mental finish corral. The best feeling in the world short of the birth of my daughter… Then the infamous SRAM beer shower.” Those watching 2016’s Red Bull Joyride got to witness a special moment. After over a decade of slopestyle competition, Zink announced his retirement from the discipline. With that shift in his focus, along with some developments in his life off the bike, he says he’s still looking to push it in 2017, focusing on his all-round mountain bike game.

“Our second child is due just before the two European stops, so I am not sure if I will be able to compete in all of them, but my goal was to be King of Crankworx. Now that I am not doing slopestyle, I can focus on many more events.”

Tomas Slavik
Tomas Slavik
Geburtstag: 12.06.1987
Heimatstadt: BRNO, Czech Republic
Top Disziplin: Dual Speed & Style, Pump Track, Dual Slalom

Tomas Slavik took the Crankworx World Tour 2016 by storm, and while his name in Crankworx competition may have been relatively unfamiliar for newer fans of the sport, it was far from his beginning. He started racing at age six, first in BMX, then transitioning to a mountain bike at 16. In 2008 he made his way to Whistler to compete in his first Crankworx: “It was a completely new world to me…I had the best time of my life riding my bike at that time.” After a few podium finishes, he all but disappeared off the Crankworx scene, reappearing with a bang at Crankworx Rotorua 2016, taking the win in the Mons Royale Dual Speed & Style, asserting his speedy dominance and besting a field made up of some of the world’s best. With two other podium finishes, including top of the box in the Giant Dual Slalom at Crankworx Whistler (“when I crossed the finish line on a 1st race and I realised I might become King Of Crankworx by this win which was absolutely amazing feeling after such a hard season and so many races. Big relief!”), over the course of the season, he wrapped his season with one of the most hard-won prizes in mountain biking: the title of King of Crankworx for 2016. Heading into 2017, he’s dreaming of a repeat: “It would be great to have fun on my bike, meeting friends from all other disciplines and at the same time scoring at the events to get KING OF CRANKWORX title. Sounds like a good plan to me, but at the same time I know it’s super hard to get this title and lot of guys is on the same mission so we will see :)”

Conor Macfarlane
Conor Macfarlane
Geburtstag: 03.12.1990
Heimatstadt: Queenstown, New Zealand
Top Disziplin: Downhill, Dual Speed & Style

Like many, when Conor ‘C-Mac’ Macfarlane started riding bikes, it was more about function, “to school and back started it all,” but that changed when he got into his early teens as started entering cross-country races, a passion that soon took hold and took him all over New Zealand, and beyond, to Oceania Champs, Junior worlds, etc. In 2011 he made his way to Crankworx Whistler to, like many, take in all the action as a spectator, setting the foundation for what was to come. Since then, especially as Crankworx took root in his home country, Macfarlane has begun to make a name for himself on the Crankworx World Tour circuit. His goal for the 2017 season? “Ride bikes and have fun!”

Tomas Lemoine
Tomas Lemoine
Geburtstag: 23.09.1996
Heimatstadt: Marseille, France
Top Disziplin: Slopestyle, Pump Track, Speed & Style

Known for his multidisciplinary skill and the wild style he brings to competition, Tomas ‘Stratos’ Lemoine has been carving out a name for himself in the mountain bike world over the past four years, while racking up some solid podium finishes, and always putting on a good show for the crowd. He began riding at five-years-old, then entered his first BMX competitions at six. At 16, he competed in his first Crankworx competiton in Les 2 Alpes, starting off strong, podiuming in the Speed & Style, an experience he describes as “amazing!”

“First podium on speed n style with Cam [Zink] sick on lead. And first time I had the chance to ride a big contest with such big names on the slopestyle scene! I was dreaming!”

Since then he’s continued to podium in both Dual Speed & Style events and on the pump track, taking his first win this past season in Rotorua, while always putting in a solid showing in the Crankworx World Tour slopestyle competitions, which continues to be his primary focus heading into the 2017 season:

“[I’m focusing on] Having a lot of fun and doing well on slopestyle first. And would be stoked for some more podiums in pumptrack and speed n style! Let’s see what happen I’m excited for 2017 as we have now a new stop!”

Keegan Wright
Keegan Wright

Top Disziplin: Downhill, Pump Track, Dual Slalom, Enduro

For those watching the inaugural Crankworx Rotorua Pump Track presented by RockShox in 2015, Keegan ‘Wrighty’ Wright’s second place was a podium finish to remember. The young Kiwi rider, who started riding bikes at eight-years-old and competing at 10, with a focus that shifted to mountain bikes at 15, was riding with all of Rotorua behind him, an experience he describes as: “INSANELY SICK!! SO AWESOME…so stoked to have the home crowd there cheering me on! It was pumping!” If his performance in 2015 was any indication, the future is bright for this young rider, who’s looking to flex his multidisciplinary muscle in 2017: “I just wanna get some solid consistent results and have fun doing it, would be good to give that King of crankworx a go too!”

Remi Thirion
Remi Thirion

Heimatstadt: Raves, France
Top Disziplin: Downhill

After 2016, Remi ‘Mitch,’ ‘Mimi’ or ‘Michel’ Thirion will forever be known to mountain bike fans as the Master of Mud, after taking top spot in the inaugural Crankworx Les Gets Downhill presented by iXS, an event of epic muddy proportions. His journey started long before he slid his way over the finish line and into the history books, starting out on a bike a three-years-old, and starting to compete at nine. He spent several years making a name for himself on the downhill World Cup circuit, making his Crankworx debut in Les 2 Alpes in 2015, where he also claimed his first Crankworx podium finish, taking second place in the downhill. The following year, the French rider came back for more, crushing his competition on what he describes as the muddiest track he’s ever ridden. Heading into 2017, he’s got his sights set on continuing his dominance in Les Gets, looking to repeat his win on the historic track in his backyard.

Bas van Steenbergen
Bas van Steenbergen
Geburtstag: 15.02.1994
Heimatstadt: Kelowna, BC
Top Disziplin: DH, Dual Slalom, Dual Speed & Style

Bas ’Steezebergen’ (“didn’t start that myself I swear”) van Steenbergen has been a fixture on the Crankworx scene since 2011, first as a junior, and more recently as winner of the 2016 Fox Air DH at Crankworx Whistler. Born in the US, raised in Holland, and now with a home base in Kelowna, BC, van Steenbergen has been ripping on two wheels since his parents took the training wheels off his bike at three-years-old. When he was 14 he started racing BMX, progressing to downhill racing at 17, then making his Crankworx debut in 2010, topping the podium as a Junior for the first time the following year. He says his Crankworx career highlights both came in 2016, when he took the win in the Fox Air DH, and also raced head-to-head with his brother Tom in the bronze medal match up of the CLIF Bar Dual Speed & Style. Coming off the momentum of 2016, his hope for 2017 is “to consistently get points throughout the year in different events and hopefully get the King of Crankworx title at the end.”

Brandon Semenuk
Brandon Semenuk
Geburtstag: 02.02.1991
Heimatstadt: Whistler, BC, CAN
Top Disziplin: Slopestyle

A man who almost needs no introduction, Brandon ‘B’ Semenuk is a rider who’s truly grown up alongside the sport. His career launched at 14, when he entered his first Crankworx in Whistler in 2005, qualifying for the slopestyle competition, an experience he describes as “nerve-racking.” He returned the following year, this time making it to the finals. His path to success continued, in 2007 getting his first taste of a Crankworx podium, something he’s experienced in some capacity every year since. Of all the moments of glory that have made up his career to date, he says the sweetest is the first time he owned the top step of the podium in Whistler, in 2011. Semenuk is the most decorated Crankworx slopestyle athlete to date. He keeps things pretty simple as he continues to re-write history year after year, with his goal in 2017 to: “Put on a good show.”

Brett Rheeder
Brett Rheeder
Geburtstag: 16.02.1993
Heimatstadt: Mount Albert, Ontario
Top Disziplin: Slopestyle

The past few years have seen Brett Rheeder reach an unprecedented level of skill and renown in the world of mountain biking – and beyond. Brett started making tracks on two wheels very young and was competing by age 14. Three years later, he made his way to Crankworx Whistler.“I was in pre-qualifications for the slopestyle. I crashed and didn’t get a chance to qualify. I was definitely in over my head at that time in my career,” he recalls. The learning curve didn’t take long.

While a back injury did take Rheeder out in 2013, even set backs seem to make this tough competitor stronger. He returned better and seemingly more determined than ever, landing on the podium at Red Bull Joyride at the end of 2014, before taking the 2015 season by storm. As Crankworx launched its World Tour, and with it the Triple Crown of Slopestyle, Rheeder quickly became the one to watch, winning the inaugural Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle, then carrying that momentum on to Crankworx Les 2 Alpes. He took a second season win, with his favourite competitive Crankworx moment to date. “It was my second time back in Les Deux Alps, since my back injury there in 2013, and also the first Crankworx I won where none of my competitors messed up or crashed. It was a straight-up win.”

Emil Johansson
Emil Johansson
Geburtstag: 20.06.1999
Heimatstadt: Trollhättan
Top Disziplin: Slopestyle

When he was seven-years-old, Emil Johansson got his first bike. By 13 he was competing, and by 17 he had already made his way to the biggest competition in mountain biking. No big deal, right? He describes his first Crankworx experience competing in Red Bull Joyride 2016 as “beyond my imagination.” At such a young age, and with a near podium finish already under his belt, he finished fourth in 2016’s Joyride. The future looks bright for Johansson, though he’s not putting too much pressure on himself heading into the 2017 season, with goals to “just do my best and see how far it takes me.”

Jack Moir
Jack Moir
Geburtstag: 08.02.1994
Heimatstadt: Morisset Park
Top Disziplin: DH, Enduro

Jack ‘Shark Attack Jack’ Moir stormed the Crankworx scene in 2016, but his life on two wheels began much earlier, when at four-years-old he started racing motorbikes. He they parlayed those skills onto a mountain bike at 13. After a few years of competitions he made his way to mountain bike mecca, Crankworx Whistler, competing in the 2014 Garbanzo DH and Canadian Open DH presented by iXS. The spark of Crankworx stoke and mastery was clearly lit that year, building to a 2016 that was his best Crankworx World Tour season thus far, with four podium finishes, starting at Crankworx Les Gets, home of his favourite Crankworx event so far: “The downhill in Les Gets this year was so much fun! It was the muddiest race I have ever ridden. So many good times getting loose and sliding around with everyone.” Moir then closed out Crankworx season in Whistler with what, for him, has been his Crankworx career highlights to date, placing second in the Canadian Open DH presented by iXS and taking the overall Crankworx World Tour Downhill series title for the season. With a stellar 2016 behind him, he’s aiming to keep that momentum going into 2017, hoping to get on to more podiums and take the overall downhill series title again.

From racing to dirt jumping to taking his first Crankworx competition at Crankworx Rotorua in 2016, and finishing his year on the podium, last Max ‘Maxie’ or ‘Freddy’ Fredriksson  seems a slopestyle star on the rise. He says Crankworx was always his dream, so making his way  to the world’s stage in Rotorua was a moment that changed his life.

“Rotorua was my first and is my favorite Crankworx. The vibe there was so different to all the other ones. It was so relaxed with tons of practice and the course was the best one I’ve ever ridden,” he said.

After kicking off his season at Crankworx Rotorua, he rode a wave of momentum through to Whistler, wrapping up with a third place in Red Bull Joyride. His career highlight?

“For sure the moment when I landed my run during Joyride in Whistler 2016. It’s been my biggest dream to be a part of the event ever since I discovered it on TV as a kid. I will never forget that moment.”

Heading into his second Crankworx season, he’s looking to keep pushing forward: “My goals are high going into 2017 and I hope to get some good results together with some good times!”

A fixture on Crankworx downhill podiums, Tracey ‘Little Trace’ Hannah, started racing on two wheels at the age of four, eventually making her foray into the world of Crankworx competition at 19. Nearly 10 years deep, she appears to be racing as strong as ever, with a number of winning moments to her name, including winning the overall Crankworx Downhill World Tour in 2016. She says beyond the competitions, Crankworx for her is about fun, and memorable moments: “I really love the dedications that happened at Crankworx for Stevie Smith and Kelly McGarry. They were really special riders and the moments were ones to remember forever.” Heading into 2017, Hannah’s focus is on continuing to dominate in downhill. She intends to make her presence known at Crankworx, on the UCI World Cup circuit, and at World’s.

Wer auf der Suche nach Airtime ist, findet sie auf dem Arzler Alm Trail. Extrem flowig, verspielt und das Vergnügen endet quasi direkt in der Stadt - geniale Feierabendrunde!
