whip contest on crabapple hits whistler bike park during crankworx 2011.
Who among us didn't spend our early childhood years on a bike pretending the it was a moto? Ripping around our neighbourhood sidewalks, alleys and parks, a clothespin holding a hockey card in our spokes. Imaginations ran wild dreaming that we were grabbing a handful of throttle and screaming around a track claiming to be Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael or James "Bubba" Stewart. Every opportunity to put a little air between the tires and the ground was taken.

When all was said and done and the riders had gave it their all the judges went into deep deliberation. The final decision had Eliot Jackson winning the Best Scrub while, Graham Aggasiz won the Best Whip Not Pulled Back Award and the Best Whip went to Brazilian Bernardo Cruz who was nailing the biggest, dirtiest moto whips of the day.

Will Elliot Jackson repeat? Who has the best whips in mtb?

Semenuk. Grabbing what's been rightfully his for a long time.
Semenuk, Zink, and the new guy.
...and the crowd goes wild.

Semenuk is on a roll (and the favourite going into Joyride). Who else has a good shot?

 Semenuk is a great rider... and he has proven it for sure but Riders are like foods man... to each his own. I personally enjoy Pilgrim's Wild and out style to Semenuk's mechanical riding... he just seems very stiff to me...

 So here come the neg props, but I personally hope someone other than Brandon gets the top spot, fair and square (ie: Brandon doesn't wreck). There is progression and advancement that comes with someone getting knocked off the top spot like that and Brandon has MORE THAN PROVED he's in that top spot. Lets see Rheeder, Soderstrom or even Zink (*gasp*) bust some redonkulus run to push the sport further.
