Despite some very uncharacteristic losses in his injury-plagued 2011 contest season, Bestwick did not relinquish his grip on the biggest titles in BMX Vert, claiming X Games gold (his fifth in a row) and the overall Dew Tour crown (his seventh in a row). Now healthier than in 2011, Bestwick is seeking a six-peat at X Games 2012, a feat that has only been accomplished once in X Games history. Widely regarded as the best BMX vert rider ever, he combines supreme style and flow with the discipline's most difficult tricks, a rare ability that has propelled him to the top of the sport.
