The Best Whip contest saw some tight competition but the most entertaining was definitely the battle between Levi and Tom Pages. Levi was edged out of the top spot by the slimmest of margins but still stashed 2nd place easy! Check out the whip highlights here:
The overall best trick competition was the highlight of the event with an incredible of international riders showing off their best, and sometimes impossible, tricks. Cliffhangers, superman tail grabs, rock solid backflips and huge whips were just some of the aerial acrobatics on show.
Turns out Kiwi’s really can fly. Make sure you catch Levi at Palmy North Big Boys Toys this weekend to see him throw it down in the flesh yeeow!
