You’ve likely never heard of Dennis Langestam. Until yesterday, we hadn’t either. With a background in dirt jumping, he never really rode big bikes, and never expected to be in the Whip-Offs. But Brandon Semenuk hooked him up with a downhill bike, and so Langestam came out for the Whip-Offs, having never ridden a downhill bike or Crabapple Hits previously. Langestam threw big, floaty and effortless whips throughout the competition, making it into finals and ultimately earning an honorable mention.
