Gravity Media has confirmed details for the global coverage of this year’s Crankworx Cairns.

Gravity Media Australia will deliver the international broadcast technology and production outcome for Crankworx Cairns, the world's largest mountain bike festival across 22-26 May.

Coverage of Crankworx Cairns will be delivered across Red Bull TV.

Crankworx, a four-day festival of international mountain biking competitions and races, originated in Whistler in British Columbia and is now Whistler’s largest annual festival. It has evolved into the Crankworx World Tour with festivals in Whistler, Cairns, Innsbruck and Rotorua.

Gravity Media Australia has been the broadcast technology partner for Crankworx Cairns since its successful debut in 2022.

Across five different courses and four days of competition, Gravity Media will access 90 different camera positions, satellite broadcast technology, and 23 cameras including speciality cameras and drones to capture the ultimate experience in mountain biking.

The broadcast undertaking will access Gravity Media Australia’s unique fibre network and speciality cameras solutions, building on the successful coverage of Crankworx Cairns in 2022 and 2023.

Gravity Media Australia’s role with Crankworx Cairns builds on Gravity Media’s long-term partnerships on major cycling events in Australia including Tour Down Under, Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in Geelong and UCI MTB World Championships in Cairns.

Gravity Media Australia also delivered the broadcast technology and production requirements for the UCI BMX Racing World Cup held in Brisbane earlier this year.

Marcus Doherty, Account Executive, Media Services and Facilities at Gravity Media: "Crankworx Cairns is a spectacular event.
"The landscape and the scope of Crankworx presents some broadcast challenges requiring innovative technology and production solutions.
"We look forward to creating and delivering the global coverage of Crankworx from tropical north-east Australia."
