We recently received an email from Pro BMX team rider Drew Bezanson...Some of the nuttiest bike riding we've ever seen.
I just got back from Dagenham, England from the Nike Pool Contest. It was an absolute treat, so much fun.
Nike took an old indoor swimming pool at that was going to be torn down and kept it for an extra month. They decided to drain the pool and fill it full of ramps to create the wildest contest yet. It was a teamed event where 10 riders got picked to be captains and then they got to pick any 3 riders to be on their team. I got picked to be a captain and the fun began.
My team that I picked who was Rob Wise, Pat Casey, Michael Beran and myself. We Qualified and ended up in 2nd over all in the finals. The Contest was one of the best, most fun contest that I've ridden hands down.
Here are some highlights from the contest.
