One of the most entertaining events at the Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival in Whistler BC is the Whip Off World Champs. Taking place on the trail Crab Apple Hits, massive jumps create the stage of competition. If you are unfamiliar with a ‘whip’ it comes from motocross and is called a moto-whip. The idea is to turn the bike sideways in the air then bring it back before landing. The spectacle is quite entertaining.

 

Here are a few photos from this year’s event.
