A whip in motocross is the equivalent of a method is snowboarding. Done properly, either is by far the most stylish ‘trick’ in either sport. So why is it so rare to see someone throwing a big whip or monster method? Personally I would rather see a huge stylish whip, over all the flips, spins and more contrived gymnastics that are now the flavor of the day in freestyle motocross and snowboarding. Edgar recently posted up this video, with nothing but monster whips. Style and amplitude is off the chart. I’m generally not even a fan of freestyle motocross. Full props to Edgar for keeping it simple! Love it. -TR

Well, the snow is starting to fly in the alpine, and the 2010 moto season has officially closed in the great north. The FYi motocross track rough in is 50% complete. Already looking forward to next spring..
KTM has announced production plans for a new generation of electric motorcycles. Silent running and zero emissions (assuming you have a clean source of electricity generation), could potentially open a lot of doors for peeps in moto-challenged geographic locations.
It will be VERY interesting to see what the power delivery and handling is like, as well as very strange to ride a silent-ish bike.. I don’t see this as being a replacement for displacement anytime soon, but in the context of minibikes… could this prove to be the ultimate play bike of the future?
