Top BMX rider Drew Bezanson back in S.F. for Dew Tour

Courtesy PhotoBMX rider Drew Bezanson will be competing in the Dew Tour this Thursday - Sunday.

The BMX rider from Toronto will be competing in the Dew Tour’s Toyota City Championships in Civic Center Plaza from Thursday to Sunday. Bezanson will be competing in the BMX streetstyle portion of the event, in which riders use everyday obstacles on the street to execute tricks.

What got you interested in BMX riding?

When I was a kid, I grew up racing motocross, but it was hard to get to the track every day. BMX was the next best thing, so I started doing that and got hooked. I started riding every single day and had a blast pushing myself to get better.

<p>How are you preparing for the competition?

I just ride every single day for at least a few hours. Dew Tour is going to be really competitive this year. Everyone wants to do well because it’s the biggest competition in the U.S. right now.

How will this year’s Dew Tour championship be different from the last time you competed in 2009?

Dew Tour has always been a superfun event to compete in, but I’m really excited this year because this is the first time ever that the event will include streetstyle. That’ll be a lot of fun to participate in and watch. I’m also excited to see a lot of new faces come to watch this year. Dew Tour introduces a lot of people to action sports.
