Unofficial Whip-Off World Championships

Eric Behn |

On Friday, a number of the worlds best professional mountain bikers: slopestyle, downhill and freeride, took a few hours to get together and put on what may be the most stylish event on two wheels, the Official Whip-Off World Championships.

After a few hours of jumping high and getting whipped, Bernardo Cruz was crowned the world champion of bicycle whips.

What is a ‘whip’? A whip is all about getting your bike sideways. But the only way to really explain is through photos.
