Make sure you don’t miss a single spank moment this year.
Check out the following MTB events.
Crankworx Les Gets opens with one raucous showdown of dirt-churning, whip-off action. Forget the bucking broncos of the rodeo or the high-flying acrobatics of the circus, when a great rider hits a long, clean whip, it is a smooth horizontal 45-degree salute to our world of endless sun, big air and dust-spitting attitude. Get ready to revel in some tire-swinging steeze as Crankworx Les Gets revives the Official European Whip-Off Championships presented by Spank.
In 2015, JBS Sports presented Norway's first SPANK Whip-Off to the stark-raving-crazy Norwegian crowds at the Hillbilly Huckfest. Now… it's an institution! Fasten your seatbelts and get ready for take-off at the 2016 Hillybilly Huckfest OFFICIAL SCANDINAVIAN WHIP OFF CHAMPIONSHIPS presented by SPANK! A long weekend of bearded Norwegian bike-maniacs, pumping music and a Scandinavian festival vibe second-to-none!
Skill and steeze reign supreme as the best adrenaline junkies in the biz meet for what’s been dubbed “Christmas” for the gravity crowd. Developed by the Grand Pooh-Bah of mountain biking photography, Sven Martin, the Official Whip-Off World Championships combines big attitude and sideways flare in a playful throw-down of killer whips. The rider who earns the respect of this crowd owns the title of sovereign of style and one of the most memorable moments of any Crankworx.
"Leap into the air, turn the bike to a 45-degree angle and raise the tires to greet the horizon. There you have the whip. Pull it off mid-air, with rock star amplitude, and it’s a Crankworx crowning achievement.
Developed by Kiwi mountain bike photographer Sven Martin as an unofficial event, the whip-off now gets riders in a frenzy all over the world. The Official Oceania Whip-Off Championships brings all the entertainment to the home country of its creator, combining big attitude with big whips as riders duke it out to win the admiration of the crowd, the respect of their peers and, ultimately, the title of sovereign of style."
