2015 winner: Casey Brown and Andreu Lacondeguy

Skill and steeze reign supreme as the best adrenaline junkies in the biz meet for what’s been dubbed “Christmas” for the gravity crowd. Developed by the Grand Pooh-Bah of mountain biking photography, Sven Martin, the Official Whip-Off World Championships combines big attitude and sideways flare in a playful throw-down of killer whips. The rider who earns the respect of this crowd owns the title of sovereign of style and one of the most memorable moments of any Crankworx.
