For the past several years, former factory Supercross racer Billy Laninovich was the unfortunate victim of injuries and industry drama that kept him sidelined and off the bike. According to Laninovich, getting hurt in the middle of the 2009 Supercross season was "pretty much the end of my career." But things change. This past December, Laninovich returned to Supercross, finishing ninth overall for the 2012 season. And now, Laninovich is gunning for a spot at X Games Best Whip. With freeride skills on par or beyond with many FMX riders, Billy Laninovich just might have a shot at Best Whip glory. Check the video above for the proof.
