Aspire at Crankworx Whistler 2024


Jul 22


Squamish Lil Wat Cultural Centre, 4584 Blackcomb Way, Whistler, BC, V8E 0Y3



Aspire 2024, a Grow Cycling event, presented by Outdoor Research and proudly supported by Crankworx Whistler.

This July, we are flipping the script of the typical conference landscape by welcoming young athletes, families, and underrepresented communities to the audience, and current athletic superstars to the stage. We are building connection and providing valuable introductions to the next generation of talent by extending a warm invitation to industry professionals to engage in networking sessions.

Aspire is built around the concept of attendees wearing an “Aspiring …” badge (e.g. Aspiring Clothing Designer), which signals to industry and brand leaders who they want to be and where they want to go during networking sessions. Speaker sessions are designed to be tactical and inspirational, integrating discovering the job you love with inside knowledge on how to get there.

Our incredible speaker line up includes; Tiffany Smith, Camber Outdoors CEO, Blake Hansen, Andrew Jackson, Bas Van Steenbergen, Jess Hana (Jess the Maker), Greg Minnaar, Gaspare Licata, CEO of crankbrothers, Mark Harrison, Founder of SponsorshipX, Katie Holden, Casey Brown, Patricia Drüwen and Hannah Bergemann

All tickets include food, swag, and the chance to hang out and talk with your favorite riders.
All proceeds go directly to Grow Cycling Foundation and its initiatives.

In partnership with; Outdoor Research, Tourism Whistler, Whistler Mountain Bike Park, Red Bull Bike, SRAM, Pinkbike, including our Outdoor Essentials Partner Topo Designs and Legacy Builders AvantLink, AlpX, 7 Summits Snacks, GT Bicycles, Abbey Bike Tools, Propain Bicycles, Crankbrothers and OneUp Components.

Please join us for an unforgettable evening! #aspirations2reality
