great quotes Couldn’t be pumped more for it. It’s the event we’ve all been waiting for since 2019.Red Bull Joyride’s youngest winner, Emil Johansson, is aiming for his eighth straight Crankworx Slopestyle win

great quotes I’ve never been to Whistler for Crankworx so I’m super excited to go there this year. I know it’s been a few years since the last one and it’s OG CWX territory so I think it’s going to be wild! I’m thrilled to ride fresh courses in a sick place with crazy people and just enjoy the whole Whistler experience.Robin Goomes, Speed ​​& Style and Whip-Off Winner, Crankworx Innsbruck 2021

great quotes This is only my second time at Crankworx Whistler and what I’m most excited about is the crowd and energy of this place. After a 3 year hiatus I’m sure everyone wants to get back out so it’s going to be crazy I bet! Can’t wait to put on a show with all the boys and girls! Oh yes, and of course don’t forget the bike park laps.Niels Bensink, current leader, King of Crankworx

great quotes I started Crankworx as a junior with Whistler being my home. It was (and still is) so awesome to meet everyone I’ve looked up to in my hometown for ages and ride and learn from all the girls. To take the top step on the elite podiums alongside the same girls I still look up to and get to call my friends is a dream come true.Georgia Astle, Whistler locals and 2x Crankworx Whistler Pro podium toppers

great quotes I’ve been to the hill and personally watched every single Red Bull Joyride since it started in 2011. So like any slopestyle rider it was always my absolute dream to compete in this event but I think I find myself in a unique situation as a Canadian rider who has been there live since I was a kid, felt the vibes on the hill and been about it for years struggled to get in. It has a very special place and means so much to me to be there. Having my friends and family helping me every step of the way to make this dream come true and a huge Canadian crowd screaming and cheering makes it that much more special. Whistler is the birthplace of slopestyle, so it’s time for me to carry on the Canadian legacy and show the world what I’ve got.Griffin Paulson, BC native and first Red Bull Joyride competitor

great quotes I focus on the process and performance goals I have!! However, a Queen title has always been a goal of mine…. So it’s exciting to have started the season so well in Europe and to be there.Caroline Buchanan, currently second overall in Queen of Crankworx points

great quotes Innsbruck was an incredible experience and I was just grateful to ride the track let alone get away with a medal. Heading to Whistler I’m so excited to give my all and push my way back to the home of Crankworx and work towards that win now! Reach for the stars!Mike Ross, who earned his first Crankworx medal in Speed ​​& Style in Innsbruck
