Bestwick comes out on top

Jamie Bestwick is one of the few riders who can bail right at the beginning of his first run and still seem a lock to win the event. That’s just what happened today. Bestwick came back after a fall on his first run, to steal the win in typical Jamie fashion: huge airs and back-to-back tricks. Simon Tabron came in second, relying on a stellar first run. But, his highlight came in his second run, when he attempted to nail a one-hand, one-foot 900. Yeah, wow. Rounding out the top three was Stevie McCann, who had just barely missed the podium early the day in Park. We also had a bit of a scare, when Chad Kagy missed his landing on a double flair attempt. However, he was soon back on his feet and watched his buddy Bestwick win.
