The Crankworx Whip-Off is a highlight for riders and fans every year. So what’s it all about? The idea is to whip the back end of the bike as far out to one side as possible while launching over huge table-top jumps, before bringing it back into line for a smooth landing. But the classic whip is by no means the only trick on display. Visitors can look forward to everything from huge backflips to stretched-out supermans, all against an unequaled and breathtaking backdrop. The Whip-Off is THE perfect kick-off event on day one of Crankworx Innsbruck.
