Photo Epic: Whip It Good - 52 of the Best Whips & Sends from the Lousa DH World Cup 2020 Round 4

Nov 1, 2020
by Andy Vathis  




Photo Epic presented by Five Ten


We’ve had an action-packed schedule, trying to fit in as much racing as possible in such a short amount of time. When considering the current circumstances, this was the only way to run a season, if at all. The general sentiment between the racers is that they would love some time to recover between rounds at double headers. It’s tough on the body and the bike. This is the first time this season that the weather has held over consecutive days and it’s been a nice change. So why not have some fun and let loose while the sun is out? Morning practice was split between learning the new section of track and letting it all hang out on the motorway. This is a lengthy collection of those who impressed most.

 We asks for whips and Course Sweeper A gave us so much more. Crown the course sweeper for he was the whip off sleeper and no one went deeper.

 He's the peoples champ.

 I think an "Elimination" Style of voting like they do for Photo of The Year would be a far better format to choose the best whip. All those photos makes it overwhelming to really choose just one.

 Remember people this is for a whip. Finn's is a scrub. I give it to Course sweeper A for the look back. But where is Bren Dog's one footer?

 Danny Harts whip when he won at Champery is always one of my favourite whip picks! He is soo smooth...BUT...clipped in...Brendog is always king of cool in the whip stakes!!

 There were a few years after Champery before he got those wins on Mondraker where Danny just kinda stopped doing whips at races. Missed seeing him get nasty on jumps
