The legend keeps growing! Monster Energy congratulates Jamie Bestwick on his silver medal in BMX Vert at X Games Minneapolis 2019 on Thursday night. In front of a stoked crowd at the Armory venue in Downtown Minneapolis, the 48-year-old BMX icon from Nottingham, United Kingdom, faced the world’s best BMX riders to bring home the 20th X Games medal of his storied career. After struggling with constant rain interruptions during last year’s BMX Vert event, officials in Minneapolis decided to host the competition in an indoor setting this time around. The Armory music venue, where musical performances by the likes of Diplo and Wu-Tang Clan will unfold this weekend, provided the perfect backdrop for the competitive six-rider final session.
Each rider only had two 30-second runs to post a top score on the massive 14-foot vert ramp, so the pressure meter was in the red zone in Minneapolis on Thursday night. No stranger to heated showdowns, Bestwick came in as a veteran of the sport – actually the oldest athlete across all disciplines at X Games Minneapolis 2019 – and hungry for gold after settling for silver in Minneapolis over the past two years.
Fully healed from last year’s spinal fusion surgery, the most dominant BMX rider in X Games history came in guns blazing with a perfect run on his first attempt: Building speed across the entire length of the deck, Bestwick rolled into a high-flying no-hander, huge alley-oop grizzly air, tall lookback air, Superman down whip, turndown flair traveling across the whole ramp, massive alley-oop 540, extended
