How to Judge a Whip

So what is the criteria that the judges are considering? In a nutshell, it’s summed up as “sideways, amplitude and style.” Breaking it down, here are the key components that combine to create the perfect whip:

Sideways: How far sideways you can get your bike. Ultimately, its about getting that bike to 90 degrees or beyond.

Style: It’s an artistic thing. Is that sideways, high and forward, or low and forward.

Amplitude: The height and trajectory of a perfectly styled whip is usually the tie breaker factor.

Fluidity (aka steeze): Is the rider looking comfortable, carving off the lip, not looking stiff and landing nicely.
