Soooo, my wireless mic setup is getting zero range in this massive stadium, so I can't do any mic'd up stuff. My apologies. As a consolation prize, I strapped this new GoPro Karma Grip with the Cable Extension setup onto willing victims and had them give you a first person view around all the courses here at X Games. A sincere thanks to Drew Bezanson, Simon Tabron, Morgan Wade, Colin Varanyak, and Anthony Napolitan for being down.The setup didn't work too well for the street course, but hey, can't win 'em all.
X Games has migrated north to Minneapolis and both Jeff and I are doing the ol' X Games shuffle trying to stack both riding and the oddness in between. Got a few things in the works, but I figured that a straight forward, no frills riding edit from the day was in order. Lots of cruising on day one, but some shit will definitely go down. Check back all week...
Day 2 here at the XGAMES, riders are getting ready for there contests, I am practicing for the live announcing making sure everything goes all smooth. The riding here at the XGAMES is at another level, the dirt jumps are bigger than ever, the vert riders are going as high as they possibly can. I have no idea how they are able to go as high as they do. And the park riders are getting used to the course. Tomorrow the vert finals go down and are the first event of the XGAMES so get ready for that video!

With fanfare across the state of Minnesota, X Games Minneapolis made its anticipated debut today with athletes from around the world competing in a.o. the Fruit of the Loom BMX Vert Finals. After a three year run in Austin, Texas, competition moved north to Minneapolis and the state of the art US Bank Stadium. Continuing through the weekend, the venue will bear witness to Moto X, BMX and Skateboard athletes riding side by side in a one-of-a-kind venue with the majority of competitions under the same roof. In addition, a host of today's hottest musical acts will rock the city each night at the Commons stage located outside the stadium. All of this and a wide range of
After three successful years in Austin, Texas in which Jamie won two Gold’s and a Silver in the event, the new location proved fruitful for Bestwick who narrowly missed the top spot by fractions of a point. Kicking off competition outside the US Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis, the BMX Vert competition saw elite riders from around the world treat the notoriously nice people of Minnesota to a little piece of nasty. Riding on a ramp that's 13.5 feet high this year, competitors had a chance to go bigger than ever before on the new design. The free event drew a massive crowd who bore witness to a tight competition and a BMX legend in his element.
Incredibly, at 46-years-old Bestwick was competing against riders half his age, showing them a thing or two in the process — not only talent wise but by way of originality. Wasting no time on his first run, he threw down a Bestwick original with a massive look down flair before charging into a barrage of tricks including a clean alley-oop 540, a downside tailwhip, a flair downside whip, an opposite flair and a huge 540 before finishing with the supremely difficult opposite 540 — a trick that’s almost unheard of on the vert ramp.
“After I dropped in it was like — Ok we’re doin’ it,” said Bestwick in regards to his spontaneity.
Continuing to defy physics as well as his age, the British transplant who now lives in State College, Pennsylvania proceeded to stun his fellow competitors and judges alike on his second attempt floating an alley-oop 540 tailwhip, a front flair, and an opposite flair into another highly charge run.
