Destin Cantrell Wins Gold at Summer X Games Best Whip

The X Games good times kept rolling into Saturday night for Dragon’s FMX riders. Destin Cantrell, who was competing in his first career X Games, put on a show in prime time on Saturday. At what is one of the most exciting events of the weekend—The Navy Best Whip—Cantrell walked away with gold. Best Whip is voted on by the fans, which Cantrell took home a lion share of, managing 44-percent, besting second place who had 25-percent.

Destin later remarked on Instagram, “Unreal! Starting FMX at a young age I always wanted to compete at [X Games] and never gave up on that dream. Last night my dream came true at my first [X Games] appearance and I owe this gold medal to my insanely loyal fans, sponsors, and family. I can’t thank all of you enough for backing me… THANK YOU EVERYONE!”
