10 of the sickest whips från Åre Bike Festival - which one is your favourite? Vote now!
It doesn’t take complicated tricks and huge air to get a crowd excited. It "only" takes is a whip competition. Getting sideways is one of the oldest tricks in the book and although it is one of the easier ones you can do on a bike, it is also one of the most stylish. At the beginning of June, the by now classic competition Whip It Good was held during Åre Bike Festival, and as many as 50 racers provided sideways entertainment for the masses. As always, the stoke was high both among riders and spectators and the whips were many - everyone trying to outdo the next rider. At the end of the day, Michael Andersson was crowned the winner of the 2018 competition, laying down whips like there was no tomorrow.
But, to give the other sick riders a chance too, we picked 10 of the most stylish whips from the comp and put together a “People’s vote” where you can give you’re favourite whip some extra love. All you have to do is scroll down and give your favourite whip a like and who ever has the most votes by August 13th 12:00 will take home the peoples’ vote 2018. Now, vote!
