Crankworx Cairns is Go! Whip-Off Champs

Crankworx Cairns is officially underway with the Official Australian Whip-Off Championships as the first event on the sculpted tracks in the FNQ rainforest.

The judges had their hands full with a stacked list of riders, and freshly built Whip-Off jump brought to you by the Elevate and World Trail crews. Make no mistake that Garret “lil Rojo” Mechem was looking to go two for two as the Men’s Australian Whip-Off Champ, and this year proved he could send it the most sideways, maintaining his position on the top step.

The women’s field saw more riders on course since it’s inaugural event last October. This evening’s event was giving serious Wynyard meets paradise vibes with Robin, Haz and Lou hitting the Whip jump in a party train, as they would on their home turf in Queenstown.
