The dust has settled on the third Official Whip Off Championships of the 2018 Crankworx World Tour, presented as always, by SPANK. With 90 invitational riders on the start list, the folks at SPANK bring you a focussed edit of the top 15 whips of the day, including slo mo multi angles of the 6 winning whips, arial birds eye view over the new Les Gets whip off location and jump, and 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 is one the the favorite side shows for both spectators and riders alike.
The edit features a veritable Whip Off Hall of Fame (with Les Gets placing followed by previous Whip Off wins).
