    Dew Tour BMX Finals: Toyota City Championships SF
    Garrett Reynolds won the inaugural BMX Street Dew Cup at the Dew Tour Toyota City Championships in San Francisco by landing a huge 360 bar-to-bar down grind on the nine-stair feature, a nollie 180 barspin, and a rail ride to tail-whip out. Chad Kerley and Bruno Hoffmann rounded out the podium.

    Riders were vying for the coveted Dew Cup as they competed in BMX Street, BMX Dirt, and BMX Street Style events.

    San Jose native Ryan Nyquist took advantage of his hometown setting and came out on top during the action-packed BMX Dirt Finals on Saturday night. His winning run consisted of a double barspin flip, 720 barspin, and 450 barspin, which was enough to edge him in front of second place finisher TJ Ellis and third place finisher Colton Satterfield.

    BMX Streetstyle was the last event of the championships and Reynolds claimed his second Dew Cup of the championships on Sunday. Reynolds's run consisted of a 540 truck off the launch ramp, bunny hop over the barrier, feeble 360 on the barrier, barspin over the fire hydrant, and barspin double on the down rail. Dennis Enarson and Scotty Cranmer were hot on his heels and took second and third.

  • 2011 Dew Tour Pantech Open Results

    Park may have brought up some new names and new results, but the vert results look like a copy and paste from every single event last year. But what can you do when Jamie Bestwick is still riding in perfect form at whatever age he is (ain't gonna hear it from him). So it would appear the battle for second place begins, as familiar names follow behind Jamie and end up competing for 2 spots on the podium instead of 3. My question is "when is Coco Zurita's riding going to get noticed and earn him a cup?"

    Here are the results in plain English (or names...):

    PARK
    1. Kyle Baldock
    2. Dennis Enarson
    3. Ryan Nyquist
    4. Brett Banasiewicz
    5. Scotty Cranmer
    6. Gary Young
    7. Harry Main
    8. Garrett Reynolds
    9. Mark Webb
    10. Daniel Dhers

    VERT
    1. Jamie Bestwick
    2. Chad Kagy
    3. Simon Tabron
    4. Steven McCann
    5. Vince Byron
    6. Coco Zurita
    7. Jan Valenta
    8. Jimmy Walker
    9. Austin Coleman
    10.Dennis McCoy

    Anybody notice that name at the bottom of the park results... Daniel Dhers? I'm guessing the judges were actually enforcing the rules of using the course and being creative, which doesn't work well with Daniel's box-jump, quarter, spine, quarter, repeat routine. Makes sense too, as those who used the course's diverse lines and transfers best are on the top of the list. And Baldock's double flip cannot be argued with as he takes the top spot.

    I thought this edit was going to be good, but I was wrong. It's f---ing great. Two pretty different styles of BMX coming together in an epic mix, and even some doubles stunts for those who remember doubles on vert. X Games should bring that back. Check out the last clip...

  • 2010 Turning Wheels for Kids Bike Build & Tricycle Race Event

    San Jose, Calif. - December 11, 2010 - BMX riders and X-Games Gold Medalists Ryan Nyquist and Joey Garcia challenged Silicon Valley corporate execs in a tricycle race at this year's Big Bike Build on Saturday, December 11th, 2010. In its sixth year, Big Bike Build 2010, presented by TurningWheels for Kids, brought together more than 700 volunteers to build 2,400 bikes for underprivileged kids in one day at the San Jose Convention Center's South Hall, 435 S. Market St., San Jose.

    The work whistle blew at 8 a.m. with bicycle construction peaking at 11 a.m. when volunteers set down their tools to watch the first-ever Great Tricycle Race, pitting the pros against local all-stars including: Gene Banman, CEO of Zero Motorcycles; Dan Fenton, CEO of Team San Jose; Rich Gamboa, Vice President of UBS; Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group; Joe Parisi, CEO and Founder of Therma Corp.; Joe Rodriguez, Columnist for the San Jose Mercury News; Josh Thompson, former Strikeforce Mixed Martial Arts champ; Wes Wasson, Chief Marketing Officer and Sr. Vice President of Citrix Systems; Tom Werner, CEO of SunPower Corporation; Chris Wilder, Executive Director of the Valley Medical Center Foundation

    Nyquist and Garcia didn't make it past the qualifying round while Barry Arata from Bomber Builders took home first place.

    "We definitely weren't in the lead," Nyquist said. "So after that it was all just fun and games. We rubbed a little bit. I think Joey almost flipped me over. It was good."

    Nyquist has taken the Dirt Crown twice in the Dew Tour ('09 and '10) and won 13 X-Game medals in his legendary BMX career, spanning more than 15 years. Garcia won the Gold medal at the 1996 X-Games and Bronze medals at the 1995 and 1998 X-Games. Their participation was arranged by volunteer Mathew Mardesich, president and CEO of ROG & Co., Inc., which develops action-sport terrain parks for kids.

    "To be honest, I don't know if I've ever seen this many bikes in one place before," Nyquist said, "and the fact that they're giving away every single bike is fantastic. It's going to make a lot of kids happy on Christmas morning."

    Twenty children from CityTeam Ministries also participated in the Big Bike Build by helping build the bikes they would take home, along with a helmet and lock. The remaining bikes were arranged to be given to more than 25 Bay Area charitable organizations for distribution.

    TurningWheels for Kids was the vision of Susan Runsvold, a nurse manager at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, who wanted to buy bikes at Christmas and give them to underprivileged children; children she believed might otherwise not receive any present from Santa. Runsvold began what she hoped would be a tradition of collecting money from her friends and colleagues to purchase as many bikes as possible for holiday distribution.

    "A bike is still the No. 1 requested item by children above an iPod or video game or anything else," states Runsvold. "A bike provides a child with--not only health benefits--but a great deal of independence and joy."

    To date, TurningWheels for Kids has raised nearly $900,000 to purchase new bikes and helmets, and it has recently started to visit local neighborhoods to assist with and teach children routine maintenance of the bikes. Thanks to two individual donors who pay all modest administrative fees, 100 percent of donations go to buying bikes and helmets.

    Each year, the bikes are bought in bulk, costing on average $85 for a bike and helmet, and are built by hundreds of volunteers coming together for one day of group bike construction, with thousands of children receiving a brand new bike and safety helmet.

    TurningWheels for Kids is a program of the Valley Medical Center Foundation. For more information, visit www.turningwheelsforkids.org.
