2006 Dew Action Sports Tour – Toyota Challenge San Jose, California

Tonight’s finals saw some amazing riding in both Vert and Dirt. Jamie Bestwick put together one of his best runs ever to take the Vert win. Jamie combined supermans, turndowns, a topside no-footed can-can and multiple limbless variations and barspin combos with a tailwhip flair, a huge alley-oop 540, a regular 540, a tailwhip, a turndown flair, an opposite flair, and a fastplant flair–all with nosebleed heights and all landed buttery smooth. Jamie’s first run scored him a 95.75 and no one else could touch it. Chad Kagy and Simon Tabron tied with Chad taking the tiebreaker for second. Chad went big with superman seatgrab barspins, seatgrab Indian airs, and an amazing flatspin tailwhip, while Simon pulled big 540 variations and a clean 900.

The Aussies showed everyone that they own the Dirt class with the top six places going to all Australians. Ryan Guettler put together the best run of the night through the hip-filled course to take the victory. His run started with an x-up drop-in and was followed by a double tailwhip, a 720, a big frontflip, and he ended it with another double tailwhip.
