Brett Banasiewicz, aka Mad Dog, spent the night in the hospital following a crash on a 720 attempt during the Vans LXVI BMX Invitational in Virginia Beach. Banasiewicz headed to LXVI straight off his first-ever win in a professional BMX Park event that happened at Dew Tour’s Pantech Beach Championship. As the complete details to the exact injury Banasiewicz sustained are still unclear, positive words have been unofficially heard from close teammates and friends. From everybody at Alli Sports and Dew Tour, we wish Brett well and a speedy recovery. Below is a video of the run that earned Mad Dog his first park win at Dew Tour.
