Whip contests have become somewhat of a forgotten ordeal in the last 5-10 years. They have a big one at Monster Cup but that’s off a ramp. In fact, the majority of whips are seen on ramps but as we all know the whip began off dirt. The true WhipMaster is one that can throw their bike off dirt sometimes going so far the crowd wonders if you can bring it back. It’s a sight for sure.
What I saw this weekend at HuckaBucka Slam was possibly the best LIVE whips I have ever seen. I was truly blown away by these guys and how far they tossed their whip. Even the Oppo’s from a few were X Games Gold worthy. In the end, it was Kraig Reinhart who pitched his YZ450 so far the crowd was in awe of what it had just witnessed. It was the BIGGEST whip I had ever seen in front of my eyes, ever. We have Video and I would put it up against anyone anywhere off dirt.
Here are some great pics of the boys getting sendy!
