It was the first trick of his final run, and Garrett Reynolds thought he was going to crash it.

He almost did.

“Even when I landed it, I was so loose. I like barely, barely got it. I almost hit the filmer,” Reynolds said of his 540 bar spin during his last run of the BMX streetstyle final. “I got lucky. After I got away with that, I was just having fun.”

“Fun” was just enough for Reynolds, who captured the first ever Dew Cup in the BMX streetstyle event on Sunday — the closing day of the Dew Tour’s Toyota City Championships in San Francisco — edging La Mesa’s Dennis Enarson by a single point.   

Enarson’s fast and burley style down the three-block course on Harrison Street earned him the top spot for most of the competition until the second-to-last ride of the day — a ride that belonged to Reynolds. Down 93 to 91.75, Enarson had one final shot to eclipse the New Jersey-native.

He pulled off every single one of his attempted tricks on his last run, and nearly pulled off the win. Enarson scored a 92.

“Garrett’s run was pretty much unbelievable. He did everything he wanted to do it looked like,” Enarson said. “I was really psyched with how I rode. So I’m super happy. And being able to watch Garrett ride right before me was awesome too, because he’s the best street rider there is.”

On the same course, San Clemente’s Ryan Sheckler, 22, essentially won the skateboard streetstyle Dew Cup on his first run, posting a 90.25 score. No skater came close — not until Argentina’s Milton Martinez rolled the last run of
the day.

“I thought he had it, dude,” Sheckler said of Martinez, who scored 89.75. “I for sure thought he had it. I was like, ‘damn, congrats dude.’”

The streetstyle championship was Reynolds’ second Dew Cup of the tour. On Saturday, he took first place in the BMX street competition. Los Gatos native Ryan Nyquist also claimed the Dew Cup in BMX dirt, his third since 2007.

Nyjah Huston claimed the Skateboard Street Dew Cup, also on Saturday.
