Orlando – Jamie Bestwick, 34, of Nottingham, GBR took top honors in the BMX Vert at the PlayStation® Pro at Orlando’s TD Waterhouse Centre. With his win, Bestwick clinched the Dew Cup in the inaugural Dew Action Sports Tour and receives a $75,000 year-end bonus and 2006 Toyota Tacoma.

Bestwick led Kevin Robinson of East Providence, R.I. by just five points entering Sunday’s event, but Bestwick clinched the title with a brilliant tour-best first run of 97.75. Fellow Briton Simon Tabron finished second at 93.25. Robinson was third at 92.25. Bestwick’s fourth consecutive Dew Tour event title gave him 400 points to win the BMX Vert season crown. Robinson finished second with 358 and Chad Kagy of Gilroy, Calif., was third with 303. Bestwick was the only four-time winner on the Tour.

“I didn’t compete in the first event, so I knew I needed to win the other four,” Bestwick said. “I rolled the dice (in his first run Sunday) and went for it. I wanted to do something that would blow the socks off everyone and I was able to do it.” Bestwick’s first run was highlighted by a double downside tailwhip flair.

Also held Sunday was the BMX Vert Best Trick competition, with Kagy capturing top honors with a barspin superman seatgrab over the channel. Robinson took second place and Tabron, 31, of Liverpool, GBR took third.

The inaugural season of the Dew Action Sports Tour concluded with the PlayStation® Pro at Orlando’s TD Waterhouse Centre. Kenny Bartram, Bestwick, Ryan Guettler, Bucky Lasek, and Sheckler were awarded the season-championship Dew Cup.
