Here’s a photo gallery from the Rip Off (Whip Off) worlds. Great to see little rippers as young as 8 pressing full send! Full-grown adult’s attempting the step on a bike for 3-year-olds and of course the big guns showing off some serious style! Thumps up to Bike Morzine for putting on a great show, and Misspent Summers for putting together an unreal after-party!
