Whip off is such a good time that I can’t wait to go hit that jump again. Looks like we’ll have a strong team of ladies this year who will be sick to get together.Robin Goomes

great quotes Off season this time has been busy! I spent a good part of my time in New Zealand, before returning home to Australia for the first time in nearly a year. I just enjoyed cycling and riding with friends! I feel like [now] vs a year ago I have more structure in my plans for the season, as well as less uncertainty! What I can imagine changes the way I ride and race. I’m excited for Innsbruck, I always enjoy the events and the courses.Harriet Burbidge-Smith

RockShox Pump Track Challenge Innsbruck

great quotes I think we definitely miss the crowd to support us when we ride, so it’s going to be crazy to see again. I’m sure everyone in the crowd will be happy to be back too. The party will probably be twice as big. I just get excited every time it’s a new World Tour season, you know. It’s a big event this year because we have one more stop, more District Ride, so even more exciting. [In the off-season] I did a lot of skate park, and a bit of everything. So I feel like the riding was quite large this winter and this off-season. I feel super connected to my bike and I’m pretty excited to go into this season.Thomas Lemoine

CLIF Speed ​​& Style Innsbruck

great quotes Crankworx is an amazing facility and I feel very lucky to be part of such a cool series, Innsbruck has been on my bucket list for ages! After getting a taste of Crankworx in New Zealand, I look forward to competing around the world alongside the best athletes in the world. There’s nothing more encouraging than watching your friends conquer new tricks, dominate the trail, and pump it full of gas in a competitive environment. Red Bull Formation brought a lot of us together which was great. It will be good to reunite with these phenomenal women in Austria and also to meet some new faces. I can’t wait to see what awaits us all.Louise Ferguson

Crankworx Innsbruck Slopestyle

great quotes I feel good but I already feel in my body that the greatest moment of my life is coming soon! At the moment I’m trying to only put on big stuff to get used to the airtime and big lips! My goal would be to finish the competition at least in the Top 10 to have the chance to go to the other stages of Crankworx, but I will give my 200% to try to be on the podium!Alejandro Bonafe, 2021 Red Bull Rookie of the Year
great quotes Innsbruck is still one of my favorites because the course is super smooth and enjoyable. It’s not a new course, but my mates are working on the course there, shaping it. I’m always excited to be there because all my friends are coming too. It’s always a good time there and a great party. Super cool to have people back. It’s always a factor that pushes me as a driver. If there are thousands of fans just waiting for you to drop by, cheering you on… I’m super happy. It’s gonna be a good show.Erik Fedko

Unofficial official scrub
As this is an officially unofficial event, you’re going to have to be there to see who’s going to throw themselves for the unofficial title…

great quotes I look forward to Crankworx Innsbruck this year because it’s always a relaxed atmosphere to race. The site is great and it’s cool to hang out with friends. Also, the track is not too difficult, so you can enjoy riding more than some World Cup tracks. Innsbruck is close to Germany and some good friends live near Innsbruck. The home crowd is always good to have and pushes you to perform well.Nina Hoffman
