Alright a little history before we get into it. When Sven Martin saw the boys mobbing Crabapple Hits in 2011 he said we needed a contest for their moto whips. So he organized it, underground, without permission from Whistler or Crankworx and everyone was stoked! It has since morphed into a proper event that excites more riders and spectators than any big production could...and he still runs the show, shoots pictures, hands out money and sends out photos at 3am.

When the best photo jocks in the MTB biz send you their best photos from the best event in the MTB biz, it's hard to edit down. So we basically didn't. The slideshow starts with some info and some reporting, then turns into a smorgasbord of whiptastic treats. Enjoy the best of the 2013 Whip Off World Champs in photos, captions and a video clip or two.
