Ever wonder what riders do with those huge trophies they get from winning a Dew Tour Cup? Well, in Jamie Bestwick's case, he owns six of them now and that means he has to spend a lot of time dusting them off. Of course, when you're as good as Jamie you deserve to put down your bike and do a little show boating, don't you think? Congrats to Jamie Bestwick on winning his sixth consecutive Dew Cup!
"Jamie Bestwick has been on fire pretty much since he took his first crank on a bicycle. He is a major icon in the sport of BMX and undoubtedly the best BMX vert rider of all time. He has the best style, tricks, and goes higher then anyone else out there on the ramp. We all love watching his magic. This was an exceptionally good year for Jamie. He rode all season with a hurt back and some how still managed to pull off another year end title. I really don't understand how a man can be hurt and still perform at the level he has."
"Jamie asked me a couple weeks ago to shoot a photo of all of his trophies stacked on top of each other towering over his head. Of course I thought this was a hilarious and great idea so I drove over to his house in State College. We batted around some ideas, laughed a whole lot, setup a scene, and shot this photo in his garage. The whole time we were shooting this, Jamie's son Sam had a jar of goop that made fart noises. We shot photos for about an hour and laughed our butts off the whole time." -Jeff BrockmeyerShot settings:
