This truly was "Best Trick"! Only 1 jump for each rider, make it stick. And whoever wins takes home $40,000. Maybe that's why Monster Energy didn't bring this competition back again after the first year in 2011. It was too expensive for 1 jump! This could be one of the best FMX competitions, but it only happened once! With Mark Monea landing the 'C…

Here it is! The throwback to 2006 when Travis Pastrana only managed to do one FMX run, and it was enough to win on the same weekend that he landed the Double Backflip in Best Trick only one or two nights earlier and then took a Gold medal in Rally as well! Only 5 riders made it to the final for Freestyle MX which is probably more on account of the …

It's crazy to think but in 2007 at X Games Best Trick, it was the first time we had ever seen Kyle Loza at X Games, and he came with a trick that nobody had ever landed. The Body Varial called a 'Volt' which he obviously named. Loza went on to create the Electric Doom and Electric Death and also the first rider to attempt the Bike Varial which has …

Tune in to see if you can pronounce Afrikaan's names better than Riders Lounge Podcast and King of the Whip host, Steve Sommerfeld.To be honest, I was tongue-tied. Trying to get a name like Dirco van der Westerhuizen out in one go was impossible. I was struggling hard with the South African names and Jacques decided to help out with the pronounciat…

Dalton Venter, the 4 time African Motocross champion and 2 time South African champion managed to somehow convince the team manager from Monster Energy Yamaha Racing team to let him and his team mates go and whip the hell out of a steel FMX ramp at King of the Whip and there was a fair chance he could win it!When I watched Dalton for the first time…

After finally meeting Dallan after so many years, it was great to grab a quick 5 minute chat with him before he was about to throw down at King of the Whip and see if he could stand on top of the box at the end of the night.

Normally a Best Whip competition is just a small side act, of a bigger Freestyle Motocross competition or Motocross / Supercross race. How did Ryan van der Spuy manage to bring the best riders in South Africa and now international riders like Julien Vanstippen (X Games gold medallist) to try out this crazy new event idea from the best FMX riders, M…

And no one had more pressure than the reigning King of the Whip, Scotty Billet. It had been 3 years since the previous round of competition, and with X Games Gold Medallist Julien Vanstippe…

We have been so used to watching the same old riders being shuffled out to a Best Whip competition at X Games since about 2010. It has been so hard for any young guys to get a foot in the door to try prove themselves against so many medal winners and contenders from Jeremy 'Twitch' Stenberg, Ricky Carmichael, Jarryd McNeil, Tom Parsons, Edgar Torro…

Nitro World Games 2022 produced the craziest Best Trick event we have seen since Travis Pastrana landed the Double Flip in 2006 X Games.

Not to me…

All I could see in my mind, was a newspaper headline saying "Idiot Australian lost in Indonesia Jungle" What started as a disaster on my first ever FMX Tour of Indonesia, turned into a really cool opportunity to go riding in the jungle to the top of a volcano with Sheeny and Clinton Moore. And then almost back to disaster again! This is a short cli…
