From SI.com:Ã‚Â This was supposed to be the beginning of a new era in BMX. With the opening of this season’s Dew Tour, the Nike 6.0 BMX Open was slated to be an opportunity to watch teenage riders such asÃ‚Â Dennis EnarsonÃ‚Â andÃ‚Â Garrett Reynolds, fresh off their high school graduations, take over as the new faces of the sport.
Dave MirraÃ‚Â must have missed that memo.
The 35-year-old BMX legend, who had to pre-qualify for the competition with riders half his age, not only won the BMX park finals Saturday but got his first Dew Tour win since 2005 with the highest score (93.38) of anyone competing in any discipline during the two-day competition held in Chicago’s Grant Park.
