King of the Whip 2018 – 24 February, Bikers Warehouse


LW Mag and Monster Energy present King of the Whip – Best Whip Contest in association with Motul, PlayStation, Dunlop, EVS, Just1 and Dirt Bike Life. It’s all systems go for 2018 with this highly anticipated, adrenaline fuelled event. Witness the country’s top riders battle it out for the title of King of the Whip.

For our road-orientated readers, a whip is something motocross riders do to show off even more. Generally, MX riders are better looking than road riders, they have kit that makes them look buff instead like gimps, they hit massive jumps that give them a Superman-like appearance and already leave onlookers breathless, and then, to make it even worse, the tilt the bike mid-air, pointing it almost backwards before swinging it straight at the last second to perform an heroic landing. And they do this for no reason at all except because it looks good.

It is indeed possible that there is some envy of motocross riders here at The Bike Show but luckily we are grown men and will never show it.

King Of the Whip is a competition to see which bastard can do this the best over a 21 metre steel take off jump. The winning bastard will take home praise, adoration, various good looking girls’ phone numbers and, for this year,  a cash prize of R20 000. All podium finishing bastards will also win awesome prizes thanks to the event partners.

King of the Whip is open to all riders (show offs!) that have the ability to whip and ride a 21 meter gap jump with a steel take-off. Please send submission photos/videos to

Entrance for spectators is free and the event takes place at Biker’s Warehouse in Randburg, walking distance from many people’s houses. It is due to be a spectacular event.
