After initially being scheduled for Sept. 6 to 19, Crankworx B.C. has been moved to Sept. 22 through Oct. 2.

The change was made to make it easier for international athletes to attend the B.C. stop on the 2021 Crankworx World Tour.

“In order to make it as smooth an experience as possible, we’ve opted to push our dates by a couple weeks in September,” said Crankworx managing director Darren Kinnaird in a press release. “As a bonus, this will give us the opportunity to share a taste of fall in B.C. with our athletes and the world, which is often some of the best riding of the year.”

In addition to the date change, Crankworx also announced the timing of the three stops as well as the full list of events.

Crankworx B.C., which is spread across three mountain resorts including Sun Peaks resort (Sept. 22 to 24), Kicking Horse Mountain Resort (Sept. 26 to 28) and Silverstar Mountain Resort (Sept. 30 to Oct. 2), will consist of nine contests across six different disciplines, with five events being broadcast live on Red Bull TV.

The disciplines include Downhill, Dual Slalom, Air Downhill, Speed and Style, Pump Track and wrap up with the second Crankworx Slopestyle World Championship (SWC) event of the season.

Dual Slalom as well as the Air Downhill events will take place at both Sun Peaks and Silverstar, Kicking Horse will see the CLIF Speed and Style as well as the Mt7 Psychosis events, while Pump Track and Slopestyle will also be held at Silverstar.

Riders for these events will include contenders for the King and Queen of Crankworx titles, as well as riders who are qualified to compete in the SWC.

Among those in contention for the Queen of Crankworx title are Whistler's Georgia Astle and Squamish's Bailey Goldstone the only Sea to Sky riders in the field for the event.

The third and final stop on the 2021 Crankworx World Tour is set for Nov. 1 to 9 in Rotorua, New Zealand.
