Round #6 of the 2008 NBL and ABA Pro Series events were held this past weekend in Prunedale, California for the NBL and Atlanta, Georgia for the ABA. With one of the few conflicting ABA and NBL national Events of the season, the Pros of BMX had to make the decision on which series to attend. A larger turnout was at the NBL event, but the ABA event was just as difficult with the level of riders in attendance. With Pros on each side of the USA racing this past weekend, it made for 2 great events. Here is how the Pros finished up:
Kyle Bennett, one of the 3 rider Team USA's BMX Olympic Team, has been on a tear in the NBL with a slew of great results. Prunedale was no exception, as he looked to be one of the fastest riders during the qualifiers on Saturday. The NBL one main event format worked out great for Kyle as he took the win wire to wire on Saturday. Sunday started out a little different for Kyle as a first moto crash
In the BMX Park event, Dhers, of Venezuela scored 93.33. Australia’s Ryan Guettler was second with 92.50 and Mike Spinner of Miami finished third with 92.33. Daniel Dhers rose from eleventh place to take the win in BMX Park in the Panasonic Open.
“In my first run I started messing up trick after trick, and I was like, ‘That’s it, it’s over,’” Dhers said. But all that changed on his second run. Moments before, Dhers said he decided to take his hands off the handlebars while he performed a flatspin 720, increasing the difficulty. He landed the trick and continued with three double tailwhips, a 720 over the spine and a no-footed can can tailwhip. “I got on the deck, I heard my song coming on, and I was like, ‘No, no, one more battle and we’ll see what’s up.’ I’m seriously so happy to get the win.”
Jamie Bestwick won the BMX Vert event Friday with a flawless first run that placed him out of reach of the competition and Ryan Nyquist came from behind on his final run to win the BMX dirt competition.
Jamie Bestwick won the BMX Vert event and Ryan Nyquist came from behind on his final run to win the BMX dirt competition Friday in the AST Dew Tour Panasonic Open. The 36-year-old Bestwick, from England, sealed his victory with an alley-oop in his first run, which earned him a 96.00 score. Chad Kagy of Gilroy, Calif. was second at 93.17, followed by England’s Simon Tabron at 92.00. “I tried to stay smooth and high on my first run and I hit them all perfectly,” Bestwick said. “I didn’t know my first run would turn out like that. That was amazing. It’s good for me to take the early lead right now, but the race for the Cup is just getting started. It’s not over yet.”
Bestwick, the three-time defending Dew Cup champion, has won 12 out of 16 events in the four-year history of the Tour.
In the BMX dirt competition, Nyquist executed a flawless first run

The FlyBikes bashguard is now available in shops. The bashguard was redesigned by Ruben Alcantara and David Quesada and is compatible with the Luna frame. The bashguard was a grind plate used in the early days of freestyle. We felt it would be interesting to see what today’s riders could do with it. There will be a prototype Tierra in testing soon for the bashguard as well. So if you are looking to expand your grinding capabilities and you have the new Luna frame, check out the bashguard. Here are a few examples of the bashguard in use. These are the easy ones but there are untouched ideas with the bashguard.
