Jamie Bestwick lives in State College Pennsylvania. He competes in BMX Vert competitions while also working as the BMX Freestyle Coach for Great Britain's Olympic Freestyle team. Jamie also is working with the next generation of BMX riders attending Woodward Camp in Pennsylvania.
Jamie picked up a BMX bike at 10 years old spending many years traveling and competing across the UK and Europe. He moved to the United States in 1999 from Nottingham UK to train at the world-renowned Woodward Camp for action sports.
In 2000 he won his first X Games and in 2014 broke the record for most consecutive X-Games Gold Medals.
Establishing himself as a BMX champion has presented Jamie with incredible competitive opportunities from Racing and winning the Baja 1000 with Toyota/Monster Energy to becoming the 2014 Laureus World action sport athlete of the year.
BMX has also led Jamie to explore road, mountain biking, and gravel cycling; all becoming a big part of his training and enjoyment.
“I am very thankful for bikes and how they have shaped my life and the places they’ve taken me.” - Jamie Bestwick
During this difficult year, Jamie has discovered gravel cycling as the perfect escape and a way to become part of an increasingly exciting community.
