The dust has settled on the third Official Whip-Off Championships of the 2018 Crankworx World Tour presented by Spank.
With 90 invitational riders on the start list, and following the official Pinkbike Highlights video released, the folks at Spank bring you a focused edit of the top 15 whips of the day, including slo-mo multi-angles of the 6 winning whips, aerial birds-eye view over the new Les Gets whip off location and jump.
We wouldn’t disappoint by not including the signature whip trains, flat spin look backs and front flips that, although they disqualify the riders from being judged for that run (it is a whip-off after all), nevertheless make this one of the favourite side-shows for both spectators and riders alike.
The edit features a veritable Whip Off Hall of Fame, with no less than 25 Whip Off 1st titles amongst the top 15 riders.
Riders featured (with Les Gets 2018 placing followed by previous Whip Off wins):
Ryan Howard - Men’s 1st, Rotorua Crankworx Men’s 1st 2015 and 2016
Kade Edwards - Men’s 2nd
