About Jamie

Owner of 9 consecutive X Games BMX Vert gold medals, the longest streak in X Games history, Bestwick is nearly impossible to beat. When his competitors land some of the biggest tricks in the sport, Bestwick answers back with complete runs of start-to-finish perfection, delivering back-to-back tricks at consistent height with the smoothest style. Now 43, he still feels great on the bike and puts in the time -- on and off the bike -- that it takes to remain on top. Bestwick has 13 X Games gold medals (12 from Vert) and 15 medals overall. The coffee fan began his own coffee company in 2014.

  • Bestwick owns nine straight X Games BMX Vert golds -- a record for consecutive X Games victories. He's claimed 15 medals from 18 X Games appearances including 12 Vert gold and one Vert Best Trick gold. Bestwick has also won every overall Vert title in Dew Tour history.
