Press release: In BMX dirt, Parslow was tied with Corey Nastazio going into the final run when he executed a technical run earning an average score of 92.25. Nastazio, of West Palm Beach, Fla. fell on his run and finished second with 91.09. Australian Corey Bohan was third with 90.75. “I qualified last and while I was excited to get in, starting first is a tough spot,” Parslow said. “My first run went well and then I put together the ride of my life.” On his third run, Parslow landed a front flip, a 360 and a double backflip.

FatTony, www.ridebmx.com, August 22nd, 2008: I’ve said before that a contest was wild and progressive and so on, but tonight’s dirt finals here in Portland for the third stop of the AST Dew Tour was absolutely unbelievable and by far the most outrageous display of BMX I’ve ever seen in an hour block of time. The first run of the night set the tone for the entire competition. Luke Parslow came out with a 92 point run that included a flip turndown, frontflip, tailwhip into the berm, and a double flip. After that run everyone knew they had to bring their A-game to the area…and so it went. Cory Nastazio had an amazing run that included a table frontflip and 360 backflip, Diogo Canina landed a triple whip, Steven McCann did a no-handed 720 to turndown, Ryan Guettler did a 1080 but took his foot off at the very end, Cameron White did a triple whip, a frontie into the berm, and a whip to barspin, Rob Darden did multiple 720s in a single run, Ryan Nyquist did a nothing to double barspin in one run and in another run did a barspin 720 and a double barspin 720, James Foster did a double flip, triple whip, and windshield wiper, Dennis Enarson did a triple whip, flip whip, and barspin to whip, Corey Bohan did a barspin to whip and tons of stylish 360 variations, then tried to 180 the last set… Whew, that was a mouthful! Told you it was wild!

Press release: Daniel Dhers continued his bid for a fourth consecutive Dew Cup and defeated defending event champion Mike Spinner Sunday in the Wendy’s Invitational. Dhers took the lead from Spinner in his flawless first run which included a 720 into a flair, a can can 720, and a 360 tailwhip transfer, to finish with a 93.83 score. Spinner attempted to knock Dhers out of the lead on his second run, but his feet slipped off the pedals when landing a triple tailwhip. He finished second at 92.67 and Rob Darden, of Greenville, N.C. was third at 91.33. “I like to win contests but I thought winning in Portland would be redemption,” Dhers said, who battled injuries at this event in the previous two years. “Spinner has been up in the mix for a while. So, after he did his first run I was like, ‘OK, I’m up for the challenge.’” Spinner’s first run included a triple tailwhip on the quarterpipe, a 1080, a 540 tailwhip and a quad whip. Dhers has won eight of the 10 contests he has entered this year, including every stop of the AST Dew Tour. He said his goal is to win all five stops of the tour.

Press release, august 2008:
In BMX vert, Kagy won the event, ending Jamie Bestwick's season-opening AST Dew Tour winning streak at two. The 29-year-old Kagy, from Gilroy, Calif., earned 95.00 on his final run, which included a flatspin 540 double tailwhip and thrust him into first place. Bestwick, the only rider remaining, fell in his run to finish second at 94.17. Australia's Steven McCann finished third at 91.50. "The top of the podium is always your goal coming into a competition," Kagy said. "The first two events I was in second place behind Jamie. There was only one place for me to go and that's ahead of him." Bestwick still holds the lead in the points standings, but Kagy is eager to surpass him. "Tightening up the points at the third stop means I've got two more chances to get in front of Jamie," Kagy said. "You never know what can happen when we've got two events to go." After winning X-Games Big Air Chad Kagy also steps on the top of the podium at the Dew Tour stop in Portland winning the vert comp.
