“Last year we had over one million views of our online web action and with expanded streaming of all events we can bring even more of Kokanee Crankworx to the world,” said Jeremy Roche, Kokanee Crankworx General Manager. “Live webcasts, daily on-demand highlight reels from Whistler Creek Productions and our social media machine will keep everyone in the know as we blow away the past with the future.”
This epic festival has included another addition to its agenda. A King and Queen of Gravity will be awarded based on cumulative results over all of the competitions. The best results from each of the athletes within all categories will be tracked to recognize the top male and female. The King and Queen could be a pro, an amateur, or a junior. The goal is simply about giving recognition to the male and female that completely dominate the Kokanee Crankworx in numerous events.
