Jamie Bestwick is sitting in the lead of the Dew Tour series but it was Chad Kagy who beat Jamie in qualifying. Simon Tabron has not released his 900 in Orlando yet and we all know that Kevin Robinson has a few bangers up his sleeve. All four riders want it bad and with Orlando being the last round of the Dew tour series, it's about to be a killer final.

You have a different approach to each year's interbike, what was your way of attack in 2006: Making parts in assorted colors and updating the entire SNAFU line. We currently have 43 items that we are either being updating or created new for 2007. Plus we are going to surround ourselves with pretty girls as much as possible. Bingo Bango!
Brand: Felt Bicycles Booth number: 626 Size dedicated to BMX: 50 x 60 total booth
How many BMX bikes did you have at the show: 20 complete bikes
How many BMX workers did you have at the booth: Of course I was in the BMX area the entire time but each sales rep would also walk each dealer through the line. I did my fair share of talking but would basically just hangout and wait for specific detail questions form the reps or dealers. So we had about 20 or so workers doing the entire line and me being 100% BMX.

October 2006 - New York, N.Y -The Dew Action Sports Tour, the pro tour of action sports, makes the fifth and final tour stop of its second season with the PlayStation® Pro, October 12-15, at Orlando’s TD Waterhouse Centre. The five-city tour opened in Louisville in June and also included stops in Louisville, Denver, Portland and San Jose. BMX stars Jamie Bestwick, Luke Parslow and Scotty Cranmer are among the athletes who will be in Orlando to compete for the Dew Cup, awarded at season’s end to the athlete with the highest number of points.
All 150 of the athletes who will compete in the PlayStation® Pro qualified for the remainder of the season at the first two stops on the Tour. Due to the depth of this year’s athlete talent, the Tour increased the finals field in all disciplines, allowing 12 athletes instead of 10 to advance to the finals.
