Crankworx Day Three!

Posted on Saturday, 28 March 2015

A behind-the-scenes look at Crankworx Rotorua Day Three, Friday, 27 March!

There was incredible MTB action on Friday with both the Crankworx Rotorua DH and Rotorua Pump Track Challenge on - but for us at Skyline, the main event was unquestionably the Skyline Rotorua CWX Luge Challenge!

Watch the full CWX Luge Challenge video edit here.

Crankworx Rotorua athletes traded their mountain bikes for Luge carts and took on the twists and turns of the Skyline Rotorua Luge in this three-wheel battle for glory. Remy Morton, Kelly McGarry, Conor Macfarlane, Reon Boe, Trish Bromley, Samantha Hitchcock, Mick Hannah and more took a break from the Crankworx festival MTB competition for a different kind of wild ride.

Check out a gallery of CWX Luge Challenge photos on Vital MTB.

Check back here tomorrow for a behind-the-scenes look at Saturday's action, and don't forget - for the latest insider info, follow Skyline Rotorua on Facebook and Instagram!
