Live Webcasts, Video On Demand And Social Media Ramp Up Interactivity For Largest Freeride Mountain Bike Festival In The World​

Connecting to all of the action at Kokanee Crankworx is best done in person. However, from August 7-15 technology will close the gap for those not making the pilgrimage to Whistler, the undisputed Mecca of freeride mountain biking. This year everyone can plug into the excitement of each day at Kokanee Crankworx with live webcasts of every event at www.crankworx.com, powered by GO211.com, daily video highlights on-demand and continuous updates courtesy of Twitter and Facebook.

“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,” says 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.”
