What is a “whip?”: A whip is a maneuver performed on a bike, usually during supercross or motocross racing, in which the rider brings the rear of the bike abruptly around to either side. This is performed while the machine is airborne off a jump. In very extreme whips, the rear of the bike will end up perpendicular to the direction of travel, in addition to the bike being laid flat. The purpose of the whip is primarily threefold: To show off, to alter the trajectory of the bike in flight, and to scrub speed over jumps.
