Swatch, proud co-sponsor of the Crankworx World Tour for the second year running, heads to Whistler, Canada, the final stop in the Crankworx tour series, from July 21 to 30, 2023.

As the world's best slopestyle riders compete in the Crankworx season finale, all eyes will be on Swatch Proteam athletes Finn Iles and newcomer Erik Fedko as they both look to return to the podium at this year’s event.

The return of Crankworx to its home in Whistler also brings with it the return of the Dirt Diaries, a unique video competition that celebrates the creative spirit, and storytelling culture of mountain biking. This year at Dirt Diaries presented by Swatch, six filmmakers will showcase a unique four- to six-minute glimpse into one athlete's life.

The Swatch NEON Collection will be available at Black’s Pub, situated right at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb, where Swatch will be dialing up the vibrant atmosphere with some exciting and exclusive activities for Crankworx fans, including a meet and greet with Swatch Proteam riders and the opportunity to ride alongside Sam Pilgrim and Casey Brown.

Born in Whistler in 2004, Crankworx has evolved into a four-stage international event said to be the ultimate mountain biking experience. It brings together the best mountain bike athletes to compete in a multitude of disciplines, from freestyle to pump track and everything in between.
