Gravity Media Australia produced and broadcast the four-day event with footage from 52 different camera positions

Gravity Media has partnered with Red Bull TV, GTR Events and Boombox Group, to deliver mountain biking event, Crankworx Cairns.

Crankworx is a four-day festival of international mountain biking competitions and races, originated in Whistler in British Columbia. It’s Whistler’s largest annual festival.

Gravity Media Australia was appointed by GTR Events, Boombox Group and Red Bull Media House to create and deliver for Red Bull TV.

Across five different courses and four days of competition, Gravity Media accessed 52 different camera positions, satellite broadcast technology, and 15 cameras including speciality cameras and drones to capture what is described as “the ultimate experience in mountain biking”.

Nathan Bassett, event director, Crankworx Cairns, GTR Events, said: “Gravity Media applied a great level of professionalism and brought a global broadcast to life for the world to experience the inaugural Crankworx Cairns in Tropical North Queensland.”

Marcus Doherty, account executive, media services and facilities at Gravity Media, added: “Gravity Media has a long relationship with GTR Events, including the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in Geelong and the UCI MTB World Championships in Cairns.

“We were absolutely thrilled to once again align with GTR Events and work with Boombox on bringing Crankworx Cairns to a global audience. The Smithfield Downhill track in Cairns is one of the most brutal venues for a broadcast rig in Australia, and our team developed a unique fibre network that allowed brilliant camera coverage in areas where others have not been.”
