Doors open at 2pm with proceedings set to kick off at 16h00 and continue into the evening as the final showdown takes place under the night lights and flashes of pyrotechnics. Riders will be pitted 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 2022 will also showcase the FMX Best Trick contest with both right-side up and up-side down categories.
The cash prize purse 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.
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.
