Merino clothing brand Mons Royale and CoLab Creative have produced a short film featuring rider Conor Macfarlane taking a creative route through his home town of Queenstown en-route to Crankworx in Rotorua. Richard Birkby, Head of Brand and Marketing at Mons Royale said “When we announced our title sponsorship of the Mons Royale Dual Speed and Style at Crankworx Rotorua, we hooked up with Conor and the boys from CoLab to put this film together. We’ve had some fun with Conor’s route to the airport through his home town of Queenstown to get him to Rotorua on time. “ The Wanaka based merino brand has signed a title sponsorship deal with Crankworx in Rotorua as part of its growing commitment to mountain biking.
Mons Royale’s title event, the Dual Speed and Style is the love child of dual slalom and freestyle - the ultimate window on the future of freeride where creativity begins. Booster jumps, step-downs, boner logs and wooden drops, riders can expect them all culminating in a crowd-pleasing, hair-raising mixer of moto whoops and flat corners. Fastest down wins the speed points, but speed doesn’t trump style. Racers earn a time credit for their artistry mid-race for tricks, flips and spins. Spectators can lock in tickets to see the Crankworx Rotorua event on Thursday March 26 from 11:30am - 2pm through Ticketmaster.co.nz/rotorua. To find out more, check out crankworx.com/rotorua
