The “Official” Whip Off World Champs went down yesterday as part of Crankworx on the infamous Crabapple Hits jumps. It’s a four hit run that culminates with a 65ft long (20 meters) table top. The kickers had received a make over before Crankworx with larger lips providing more boost than ever before. On top of the invited list of pro riders, 90 other hopefuls had shown up earlier in the week to try and qualify, that 90 was whittled down to around 15 riders who then got to join the pros in an hour long open jam session. The fifteen included Caleb Holonko and Stephane Pelletier, both Kona Super Grassroots riders (and both riding Process 167’s) as well as Kiwi shredder Nick Dethridge on his Supreme Operator. The trio mixed it up with the seasoned Whip Off veterans and threw down some of the raddest’s whips of the day.
