Got me thinking how rough whoops are and how the tire slaps that fender and if bikes are really made for whoops? Seems like whoops are so hard on a bike.

Whoops no problem ... from my experience it’s huck a buck when you run into issues

Blow the corner before and re-enter at the next safest place.

If you’re Jacob Hayes, you just go around the whoops at that point and then wonder why it wasn’t legal

Whoops are very hard on crankshafts. Thats what JBone told my Dad and I when he was bubbas wrench. He said the load and unload on the engine would cause crank bearings to fail
