LW Mag and Monster Energy are excited to present the 2019 King of the Whip – Best Whip Contest, in association with Motul, PlayStation (Monster Energy Supercross 2 – The Official Videogame) and Fox Racing.
On the 2nd of February 2019 witness the country’s best Motocross and Freestyle Motocross athletes battling it out to for a share of the R40 000 prize purse and to see who’ll be crowned King of the Whip.
Proceedings are set to kick off at 4pm with the prize giving expected to take place around 9pm. Riders will be split into groups and will have to qualify through the jam session rounds. Judges will be looking for style, amplitude and variation, and riders that score high enough points will advance to the finals.
For the first time ever, we will be showcasing the FMX Best Trick contest with both right-side up and up-side down categories.
We’ve upped the ante with a R40 000 cash prize purse. This will be split 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, “We’ve been waiting excitedly for a whole year and we’re finally back. We’ve upped the ante for this year’s King of the Whip bringing bigger-and-better to both the riders and spectators. To our event partners, thank you! Thank you for making this possible and enabling our top riders the opportunity to showcase their skills on dirt bikes. It is going to be extremely fun, crazy and exciting,”
