One. Sometimes one is all you need. One takeoff. One landing. One chance to lay it all on the line between the two.
That is the essence of Whip Off and Best Trick competitions held at Big White in Kelowna, British Columbia on July 12-13, 2019.
There were some serious skills on display. Before we get too far into this, a huge shout out to Dustin Gilding and the boys at Loft. None of this is possible without the builders. These guys have killed it in an unseasonably wet summer at Big White. Well done.
The venue. Everything is well within walking distance, making for an all encompassing experience.
Reed Boggs was amped all night, winning Whip Off mere hours after finishing 12th in Slopestyle.
Kaylee Gibb is superwoman. Three little ones AND moves like this on a bike?
Reese Wallace buzzing the tower.

Is Jackson's secret nickname "Boost"? It should be.

Moving over to a little Best Trick Action. It was insane. Seriously.

No looking back now.
If you weren't here in 2018, didn't make 2019, put 2020 in the calendar right now. Big White is on to something.
