Crankworx Innsbruck 2020 highlights
With the world more than ready to get its teeth into some global racing action, all eyes were on Innsbruck as an international line-up of athletes competed for the various titles up for grabs.
The first big downhill race of 2020 saw local Austrian athletes at the top of the podium. The weight of expectation on Vali Höll for her first Elite season didn’t appear to hinder her performance, with a convincing win over Tracey Hannah in second place. Joining her in the gold medal position was David Trummer, who took the hot seat early on and held on to it.
Inclement weather caused some disruption to the planned schedule, meaning the Speed and Style finals were cancelled and qualification results used instead, which meant victory for Tomas Lemoine.

Given the exceptional nature of 2020, with only two Crankworx World Tour series events taking place in Rotorua and Innsbruck, there were no points awarded for the year-round King and Queen of Crankworx contest at Innsbruck. Nor were points awarded for the individual Crankworx Championships, such as slopestyle. Let’s hope normal service resumes for 2021!
Who to look out for at Crankworx Innsbruck 2021
All eyes will be on Emil Johansson to see if he can make it four for four in Slopestyle. Vali Höll sustained an ankle injury ahead of the 2020 World Championships, which put her out of play for the rest of the season, but she should be fit, well and ready to defend her title in 2021, where she’ll again be the local favourite. Her fellow Austrian David Trummer will surely be keen to defend the title he won on home soil, too.
