Bestwick claimed his seventh gold medal in BMX Vert at the X Games, earning the event's first-ever four-peat in the process.
His quiver of 540 variations, including alley oop 5s in the 11-foot range and double downside tailwhips, has no equal, neither does his amplitude above the ‘pipe.
At this year’s Dew Tour Championships, Bestwick took home the overall Dew Cup even after riding finals with a herniated disc. It was his fifth straight Vert title.
His airs may have been a bit smaller, but he was still impressive. Bestwick won four of the five events and has made it into 20 consecutive finals during his Dew Tour career.
