Whip (Noun):
A maneuver performed on a motorcycle, usually during a motocross or freestyle motocross contest, in which the rider brings the rear of the motorcycle abruptly around to either side. Performed while the machine is airborne off a jump. In very extreme whips, the rear of the motorcycle will end up perpendicular to the direction of travel, in addition to the motorcycle being laid flat. The purpose of the whip is to show off, to alter the trajectory of the bike in flight, and to scrub speed over jumps.

Inviting everyone, families and friends, to join in witnessing this highly anticipated, action-packed event. Tickers are avaliable from R50 from Food and beverages will be on sale at the event.
