Getting into the XGames Best Whip

It takes long, hard days of training, and extreme dedication to be invited to an event like this. Not just anyone is invited to these events and you must prove yourself as a worthy competitor months prior. Cantrell threw it down at the Monster Energy Cup Qualifier in Las Vegas, Nevada. Destin Cantrell competed in the FMX High Rollers Contest and the Dirt Shark Biggest Whip Contest. He fell short of the podium in the FMX contest, but he crank some fatties large enough to get third in Biggest Whip and a trip to compete in the XGames Best Whip!
