Doors open at 2 pm with proceedings set to kick off at 4 pm and continue into the evening as the showdown takes place under the night lights and flashes of pyrotechnics. Riders will face off against each other in the Best Whip qualifying jam-session rounds, where judges will be looking for style, amplitude and variation. Riders that score high enough points will advance to the semi-finals and finals.
King of the Whip 2020 will also showcase the FMX Best Trick contest with both right-side-up and up-side-down categories.
Organisers will split the cash prize purse between 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the Best Whip contest, and between the 1st place riders in the FMX Best Trick contests.
King of the Whip organiser, Ryan van der Spuy says, “King of the Whip has grown into its very own spectacle, and being able to host the event at Montecasino now takes it to the next level. We can’t wait for the showdown and to share this exciting production with both the riders and fans. A huge thank you to our event partners for making this possible and enabling our top riders to showcase their skills.”
A manoeuvre performed on a motorcycle, usually during a motocross or freestyle motocross contest. In this manoeuvre, the rider brings the rear of the bike abruptly around to either side. Performed while the machine is airborne off a jump. In very extreme whips, the back of the motorcycle will end up perpendicular to the direction of travel, in addition to the bike being laid flat. The purpose of the whip is to show off and to alter the trajectory of the bike in flight. It is also to scrub speed over jumps.
Everyone, families and friends, are invited to join in witnessing this highly anticipated, action-packed event. Tickets are available for R50 (standing) and R80 (grandstand seating) at Quicket.co.za. Food and beverages will be on sale at the event.
