Are you surprised? Cause I'm not. Jamie Bestwick won another vert comp, despite crashing during his run. Sitting in eighth place after his first run, Bestwick's consistency, combined with a huge 540 invert and turndown flair over the channel, pushed him to the top of the podium once again. Fellow Englishman Simon Tabron, 36, placed second with a 93.25 and Australian Steven McCann, 27, rounded out the podium in third with a 90.38.
"At some point you just have to realize that there are some situations that can be serious, and unfortunately I was a little too serious in my first run," said Bestwick. "I think the knock-out runs the two guys before me had effected on me. I came out in my second run thinking, 'Serious time is over, it's playtime now.' That's what I did; I went in and just tried to have as much fun as I could."
No surprise once again: Bestwick is in the lead for points going into the year-end title for Dew Tour Vert. And all he can say is that he tried to have fun. We envy you Jamie, every last one of us mere mortals. Full results are below.
