After 9 straight X Games BMX Vert Gold Medals, Jamie Bestwick finished his day placing the Gold Medal on Vince Byron, his Monster Energy Teammate. Byron and Bestwick battled it out at the top of the leader board and amazed the crowd while doing so! Both put together an amazing run with Jamie finishing 1 point behind Byron for the Silver Medal. Byron stunned the crowd and judges with a 540 Flair, a trick never before landed in X Games competition, and sealing the 92 score.

“I knew Jamie [Bestwick] was still going to bring the heat and he wasn’t going to go down without a fight. To put it all together is my dream, it’s what I’ve been working toward all year,” said Byron.

So what’s next for Jamie? Stay tuned………..
