Dave Freimuth fills us in on the latest...
On my recent trip to Florida with the Albe's guys, Chad Kagy made a call to DMC and hooked me up judging the Cleveland Dew Tour. I was a little nervous at first... judging can be a big job especially when there's 10's of thousands of dollars on the line and dudes fighting for Year End points. But when all was said and done it was one of the best jobs I've ever had. And there's definitely nothing wrong with having the best seat in the house for some of the best BMX riding in the world right now.
Probably the highlight for me was the Vert Comp. I don't get to see Jamie ride a vert ramp in person very often, so when I do it's always a treat. And the fact that Kagy has been killing it lately kinda puts a fire under Jamie's butt and it shows. Portland was one of the most exciting vert comps I've been to in my life. I can't count how many times in the last few years I've seen Jamie turn his second run into a victory lap after already locking down the win with his first run... So seeing him have to throw down for his second run in both Cleveland and Portland was amazing. In Portland Chad pulled out the win, but I can only imagine what Jamie's last run would have been if he had managed to stay on his bike the entire time. My hats off to those two for pushing vert and putting me on the edge of my seat comp after comp.
Here's a couple pics I took from the last two stops of Dew Tour... My favorite being the one of Catfish trying to hit his head on the ceiling of an elevator when it first starts to drop... he didn't and I won ten bucks, which disappeared quick when we got to Sassy's! Good times. Thanks DMC! And I promise to ride Park in one of the Open's next year!
Oh yeah, me, Patie, and Thompson went to Packers family night a couple weeks ago and got rained on and didn't care... man, I can't wait for NFL football. GO PACK GO!
