Super late on this one but just watch it and contact ESPN with a threat or something if they don’t have BQ at X in LA. But, be polite about it so they don’t get too upset. Like “Hey ESPN, thanks for taking my call. Now, I don’t want to be too much of a bother, but if Brett Cue is not in Best Whip, I think I’m probably going to strap C4 to my whole body and come into your offices and whatever happens, happens. But you have a great day.” They cannot say no to that.
Legal Disclaimer: Don’t actually call in a threat to ESPN. That was a joke. You know, one of those things that people take too seriously.
If you’ve been missing all the X-Games stuff like me, then here’s a little gift for you – the only X event that is actually worth watching, in the highest of definitions (if it’s 1984), 240p. If you don’t speak nerd, that basically means that someone took a bunch of photos with a disposable Kodak and stitched them all together into a video. Nonetheless, it’s a series of monster whips for the fans to enjoy.
I will never stop declaring my undying hatred for the fan voting system in Best Whip, although I think Torronteras was one of the best (Pages won it in my opinion). But ESPN views this event as a sideshow, as an opportunity to engage fans while they kick back in their corporate big wig chairs and count stacks of money while they smoke cigars and run their hands up and down their suspenders. Nothing against Hanny or Twitch (Hansen’s whips were right up there in this one), but Best Whip should not be about how many instagram followers you have. That’s what I see, ESPN, that’s what I see. Eazy, out.
You know the drill: watch this video then contact your local ESPN representative with this message – “Get Brett Cue in Best Whip at X-Games or I will Tony Soprano the shit out of your kneecaps in 20 minutes.”

Ep. 2 of the webisode series to get Brett Cue to X Best Whip. He’s better than most of the guys in it, plain and simple. When ESPN takes their heads out of their asses and realizes how much of a lame sideshow fan voting and god-awful camera work made it this year, they’ll hopefully take notice. Regardless, apart from the Yamaha kid who had Asperger’s or something, the BROs should enjoy.
I don’t know about this one. I mean, Brett Cue might have dope whips, but how many times has he been on cable television? That’s the real indicator of a gold medal quality whip, according to the mayor of sportsland, ESPN. But seriously, I want to help this kid out. Even though the X-Games have been totally lame since they got rid of rollerblading and kayak bungee and skydiving and rock climbing and super modified shovel racing and rollerblading and street luge and skiblade racing and barefoot waterskiing and rollerblading, I still think Best Whip could be cool if the corpo BROs realize that the mockery they are making of an otherwise cool event might be the most detrimental thing to happen to moto since Bret Michaels was born. So let’s see some fresh faces get the chance to throw down. BRO is here to change the Best Whip game for better and for always.
The week of X-Games has arrived, which means for a brief moment, the mainstream and the core BROs mesh together in a horrible amalgamation that probably would make God cry. And of course, Best Whip is again a 100% fan-judged event. I feel like some big executive came up with that idea and everyone was just too afraid to tell him that it wasn’t good, like that old story “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. It’s going to take some innocent, young child to walk up to that guy and say “Listen, that is the dumbest fucking idea that ESPN has ever had and you guys have aired the National Spelling Bee Championships, just to give you some perspective.”
I can say with confidence that McNeil will have the best whips, but he won’t win. It just cannot happen. Tina Textalot has never heard of him, so he’s cooked. I’m here to say that ESPN should privately judge this shit. Tell the fans that their vote matters, then just bullshit the numbers so the right guy should win. Best of both worlds, really; you get the idiot fans feeling like they matter, and you cut out the fame factor, because being famous literally has no bearing on how good your whip is. Justin Bieber can’t whip for shit, belie’ dat.
If you showed me this shot, I’d tell you that is a completely busch league whip. Barely anything on it. Except he’s traveling backwards right there. Oh, ok.
Yeah, ok. Have another one, buddy. You aren’t doing shit like this if you haven’t been putting down Everclear all day, it’s just not going to happen. I mean, bike upside down, head twisted to 270, and then just bringing it back like nothing happened? You’re drunk BRO, give me your keys.
On another note, it has been brought to my attention that Destin did not get a spot at Best Whip in X-Games. It’s because he hasn’t been on MTV or VH1, so the 13 year old girls who run the text-in vote thing don’t know his name. No joke at all, the kid who rode a dirtbike on Date My Mom would get more votes than half the real riders. But hey, fan participation rules, right? Right??
