A manoeuvre is performed on a motorcycle, usually during a motocross or freestyle motocross contest, in which the rider brings the rear of the motorcycle abruptly around to either side. Performed while the machine is airborne off a jump. In extreme whips, the rear of the motorcycle will end up perpendicular to the direction of travel, and the motorcycle is laid flat. The purpose of the whip is to show off, alter the bike's trajectory in flight, and scrub speed over jumps.
Inviting everyone – families and friends- to witness this highly anticipated, action-packed event. Tickets are available for R150 (standing) and R250 (grandstand seating) at Howler.co.za. Food and beverages will be on sale at the event.
