- Prepare for the jump. You want your body to be leaning slightly forward as you jump. This will help bring the back end of the bike up and around as you let off of the gas.
- Approaching the jump. As you begin the suspension start to angle your dirt bike in the opposite direction that you want it to whip. Once you get to the base of the lip, push your handlebars down towards the ground to help fatten out the bike. This will help you to get a really good whip going. To give you more lift let off of the throttle right before the suspension.
- During the jump. Allow your head and shoulder to dictate where your dirt bike is going. Your body will follow the aim of your head and shoulders. Turn the handlebars the way you want the whip to go. To stay attached to the bike hold on to the bike with your foot. When you are ready to bring your whip back bring your handlebars towards the center and shift your weight back to the center. To get ready to land the bike from the whip, simply give it a little gas to help straighten up the bike.
