Whistler, BC July 27, 2012 –Crankworx Whistler’s mobile site has launched and is ready to become an awesome resource for festival-goers on the ground in Whistler, and for people following the freeride mountain bike event around the world. The 10-day festival gets even closer to fans of freeride with live webcasts of ten different events, powered by Red Bull Media House, available at redbull.com/bike and crankworx.com.
“The Crankworx mobile site will let everyone stay on top of the non-stop action, whether they are looking for the latest race results or where the next party is,” says Darren Kinnaird, Crankworx General Manager. “People outside of Whistler can also experience Crankworx vicariously by tuning into the constant stream of social media updates on Twitter, Facebook and Flickr, not to mention daily videos on Pinkbike and sport recaps on our Vimeo page.
The Crankworx mobile site will give users access to important festival information like event schedules, updated sport results, expo and venue information, as well as the party schedule – all accessible via smartphone or tablet.
