September 9, 2005 – San Jose, CA – Jamie Bestwick, 34, Nottingham, GBR, wowed the crowd at HP Pavilion Thursday evening at the Dew Action Sports Tour’s Toyota Challenge during a run filled with intricate tricks in BMX Vert Finals.
Bestwick’s best run, his first of the evening, was filled with a difficult mix of tricks, including an Alley-oop 540. It was Bestwick’s first of two runs that stole the show and scored a 94.50. He also finished first at the VansÂ® Invitational last month in Portland, Ore. and at the Right Guard Open in July in Denver, Colo. Bestwick currently sits in first place in the points standings with 300 total points. “It’s big pressure being in first place now,” said Bestwick. “It’s just been a great season. This is a prestigious title, even though it’s in the inaugural season. This is something I’m really shooting for.”
Finishing in second was Kevin Robinson, of East Providence, RI, with a score of 91.25. Robinson finished first at the Panasonic Open in Louisville, KY, sixth at the Right Guard Open, and second at the VansÂ® Invitational. He currently trails Bestwick by five points in the Dew Action Sports Tour BMX Vert points standings with 295 total points. Simon Tabron, of Liverpool, GBR, rounds out the top three with a score of 89.75. Tabron finished third at the Panasonic Open and fourth at the Right Guard Open. He missed the VansÂ® Invitational due to injury. He is in sixth place after four events in the overall Dew Action Sports Tour points standings.
