 Rocci held that thing past 90 for an eternity, boosted 8 ft higher than all others in the video and put it down on a carpet of baby ducklings without squashing a single one.
  • 7 1
 Not a single one.

 Are we looking at the same guy? His landing although straight was probably one of the least smooth of the lot. The only thing that let him down
  • 5 0
 past 90 is rad, but have you seen the past 180 from last week??...

 Tony Rocci!!! Also, I'm pretty sure Carson went into orbit..
  • 10 0
 Carson Storch by far had the most amplitude in his whips!
  • 6 0
 Probably he went higher because he was on his slopestyle bike
  • 4 0
 yeh but look at r dog though. crazy height on his dh bike
  • 4 0
 Rocci, Reboul, McCaul and a few others all looked great,but nobody has the amplitude, style, whippiness and straight landing of Howard. I's a contest for second place.
  • 1 0
 I agree R-dawg went way higher than the rest, I'm just saying Carson probably went higher than he would of on his DH bike.

 Bernard Kerr, for holding on to that landing.
  • 2 0
 Fmx style
  • 5 0
 Damn, if he could have just hung on to that landing bounce. Beast mode.

 Bernardo Cruz won?!?!? I don'tmean to be a dick, but I'd say most of the whips in this video were much better than Cruz's. Maybe Cruz beat Fayolle but thats about it. And even that is borderline...

 Bernardo had some pretty insane whips! I was filming the whole event from the same angle and I don't think where I was did Bernardo justice. Having said that, it's the people's choice awards, so anything goes haha
  • 5 3
 I have to say his whip was the motoest (if this word exists) whip ever Big Grin
and if you don't like moto-whips, you obviously won't like this whip, but for me it was by far the best moto-whip on a DH-bike ever seen!
  • 1 0
 i guess he had his foot dangling and that shows some proper talent.

 Bernardo has won this competition in a consistent way for many years, no matter where. I just cannot understand why pinkbike and some readers don't accepts this results (one by creating polls, others by commenting against)?
I really hope it isn't a smoke screen for xenophobic feelings, as seen in many sports.

 I personally am just saying what i see and i see R Dog has the whip of which i find the most pleasing to my ball of eye which means it is pleasing my brain which pleases my thoughts which gave me an opinion which that opinion is loaded and ready to be released into the internet with a wooden sword and shield to fight off the 'you're a hater' or 'you're bean bias bruh' or 'dood wai dun you accept the winner' call outs. P.s bernardo's whip was really pleasing to watch with the one foot and all but he landed a little off and it wasn't as high or extended as r dogs.
  • 4 0
 @eneasbernardo: Xenophobia?! Ha! Seriously man, if you knew me, you would know that comment couldn't be further from the truth. I truely do not give a damn where the winner comes from, I just didnt think Cruz's whip was that great. Yeah he came off the lip pretty leant over, but that was kinda the best bit. Didnt have great height, didnt have great extention, the foot came off but it looked kinda forced, rather than a lazy and stylish. I voted for carson storch in the end and to be honest I havent got a clue where he comes from. America maybe?
  • 1 0
 @gabriel-mission9: Carson's from Bend, Oregon, USA.
  • 2 0
 @takeiteasyridehard:

He's from Oregon?!?! What a f*cking bender! His whip was rubbish!

Nah just kidding. It was sick. I've heard his name a lot over the years, think I've spotted him at Rampage a few times? Maybe? Never really knew where he was from tho. Good to know, cheers man.

 Reboul, all day long. Absolutely perfect whip
  • 3 0
 and he brought it back
  • 14 1
 Anthony Rocci killed it in the end of the video!
  • 10 0
 Casey... because no-one is pushing the ladies style envelope as much as her. Respect due.
  • 5 0
 Her whip was good but still not on the level of the top guys.... Which is kinda weird, I mean over in the moto-verse Vicki Golden's whips are legitimately world class. MTB ladies gotta up their game!

Disclaimer: my current idea of throwing a whip is turning the bars about 2 degrees in the air and trying not to look terrified, so I mean no disrespect...
  • 9 0
 Bernard Kerr had my favorite shape in the air, but unfortunately had a sketchy landing. He won my vote, so loose.
  • 7 1
 Dude Rocci freaking BOOSTED. I give it to R-Dogg though. Cruz's was sick but he took his foot off... and R-Dogg's landing was freaking money. Straighter and smoother landing than anyone else and that counts for something. I think Cam was hating on his brother cause T-Mac's was pretty clean. LOL!
  • 1 0
 Yeah I voted Ryan Howard, but figured that by being an old fart I was likely missing what's cool with the lads these days. I was pleasantly surprised to see that his was appreciated by the majority. It was the best on second look, no doubt.
  • 9 3
 Sorry if this sounds rude, but RDogg is head and shoulders above the rest. He keeps getting the short end of the judging. If you're a pro rider participating in these whip offs, you need to be taking a page from his book and not only learn to do good whips, but learn it BOTH directions. He does it just about as well both ways. And with as much height and style as anyone on course. To the other contestants, step up your game!!!
  • 1 0
 The most stylish whips are always the front foot ways or (regular) in most cases And it's easier to whip that way and bring it in because of the leg position. idk why the back foot whipping riders don't try whipping the front footed way. Back footed whips usually end in sketch landings as shown ^. still sick if you master them like r dog, martin s,semenuk etc.
  • 2 0
 I agree. But that's what I'm saying, I am far from even being sponsored, but I learned to whip both ways. I guarantee all of these riders have more skill than me, I think they are doing a disservice to their craft by not learning both ways. You can do equal whips either way, at a certain point you should have learned to lead with either foot. So I think, didn't re-watch to confirm, but the guys doing it both probably switch feet. Just my 2 cents
  • 9 1
 I voted R-Dog, but it was a tough call between him, Carson Storch and Anthony Rocci...in my opinion!
  • 2 0
 ^ i'd add louis reboul in there. so many good whips.
  • 8 2
 Jill Kintner didn't really whip in that video....
  • 3 0
 Probably still better than me especially on a jump that size.
  • 3 0
 Rocci had his whips dialed, but you cant deny how insane R-Dog is. I didnt see anyone else tossing it past 90 and bringing it back almost flawlessly, both ways. then again cruz was close to havin both feet off the bike
  • 3 0
 Props to Jil k but would you even call that a whip... Granted I certainly wouldn't even hit that jump so I couldn't do better but that was a little weak compared to the other people
  • 4 0
 Can we have Howard and rocci do a 1 on 1 whip off?
  • 5 3
 Well R-Dog was so consistent... Every single whip he threw was perfect, not as the other riders Smile
  • 6 2
 Mitch Ropelato!
  • 1 0
 Funny how Reece Wilson is in the running for people's choice best whip award, yet he only got 3 runs before getting told he 'wasn't good enough' for the main event.
  • 2 0
 also that ain't Reece, its Ruaridh Cunningham... oops
  • 4 1
 R-Dogs whips are one of the most majestic things in mountain biking
  • 2 0
 Looks like R Dog won the PCA I voted for Rocci looks like he got 2nd and Storch got robbed by us all.
  • 2 2
 Bernardo is the only rider who makes a real motocross whip style, he leaves the ramp with the bike already tilted , others do a tabletop and then tilt the bike in the air !!! He's the win, don't cry bro's
  • 5 4
 bernardo cruz had to pull of his leg to keep whiping! that was by far the sickest!
  • 3 2
 Cruz for the win
