Dew Tour 2011 is a wrap! Dew Cups and awards were bestowed at the Championships, October 16, 2011. Included here: my favorite Dew Tour moments of the year.
The Dew Tour has come and gone; here are the results of the 2011 Dew Tour Championships at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, presented by Go Daddy.com.
Dew Tour Gnartifat: Jamie Bestwick won his seventh Dew Cup in BMX Vert; he is the only BMX Vert Dew Cup winner ever, winning the Cup since the beginning of the Tour in 2005. At 40 years old, he is one of the legends and architects of modern BMX and still going strong. He competed in his first X Games in 1996 – the early days – when some of his current cohorts were mere toddlers and many riders from 1996 aren’t even riding any more. Some have said that Bestwick was too much of a sentimental favorite to win; it’s actually wonderful that the Dew Tour has come so far as to have such a problem, if that was actually true! His riding was so smooth, so effortless and technical and that– along with his legacy– helped secure the win.
“It’s hard to imagine that the power of dreams and the willingness to take a chance has taken me further than I ever imagined.” – Jamie Bestwick
