ORLANDO, Fla. – Jamie Bestwick claimed his third straight Dew Cup title by placing second in Friday’s BMX vert finals at the PlayStation Pro at Amway Arena.Bestwick, 36, made a remarkable comeback after an unfortunate first run. On his initial drop-in, the crank arm of his pedal fell off his bike, thrusting him into the air as his bike fell down the ramp. Bestwick ricocheted off the ramp and slid down to the flat bottom.
"My crank snapped on my first run so I needed a huge second run to win the Cup,” Bestwick said. “Don't think it was planned that way for the dramatic. There was a lot of pressure going into the final run.”
Bestwick scored a 92.67 on his second run which moved him from last to second. Chad Kagy of Gilroy, Calif. won the event with a 92.67.

Hi, this is just a quick update from Denver and California. First of all Stephen would like to say how humbled he is by Shirley and Lyndsey's gesture at Ross's funeral that donations should go to the Family Fund. How Ross's family could actually think of Stephen at the worst time in their lives is a tribute to them and to Ross and neither Stephen or any member of the our Family can express our gratitude for their support at such a sad time.

In just a year’s time since Crupi owner Greg Swingrover took over the company and declared in his first press release that Crupi would be offering a “more affordable” line of products, we are proud to announce Rhythm, by Crupi! It was a difficult decision as to how to market Crupi with second less expensive line since Crupi is known as having only the highest level products in BMX racing. Thus, we developed this new line under the name Rhythm which is designed by Crupi, but manufactured outside of the US. Rhythm will feature very innovative products that will not simply be “me too” products. A lot of thought will go into each and every product that Rhythm will release and dealers will be able to make great margins!
