San Jose, Calif.-native Ryan Nyquist narrowly took home the first-place finish at the BMX dirt finals, also putting him in the top spot for the season rankings. TJ Ellis of Moreno Valley, Calif. was in the lead at the BMX dirt final after completing his second run, and only extended his lead with his third and final run. It came down to the last rider of the night, Nyquist, who jumped from eighth place to first with a run that included a one-handed x-up 360, an opposite 360 tuck no-hander and a 720 one-footed x-up. Nyquist finished with a score of 92.56 and Ellis came in a close second with a score of 92.31.

"I'm really excited about where this win puts me in the Dew Tour standings,"
said Nyquist. "I'm just really glad I was able to pull off that last run. Being in that pressure situation and being able to deliver makes it that much more sweet."

The four-day competition featuring skateboarding, BMX and freestyle motocross is the fourth of five events on the Dew Tour,

Dark clouds came in right before the Dirt finals but it stayed dry all night so the show went on. Good thing because the stands were filled with people and the conditions were next to perfect. With the best riders present the level was just insane. Diogo Canina was going wild on his brakeless DB, Chris Gerber pulled a flip double whip, Scotty Cranmer pulled a flair on a take off but did not make it through the sets once in front of the Salt Lake City crowd. Every rider had three runs of which the two best runs counted. This system mixed things up a bit but the big jumbotron helped keep track. With one rider to go Brandon Dosch was in 2nd and TJ Ellis in first. But the last rider up was Ryan Nyquist, who had one bad run and one really good one. If he would stick the tricks in his last run he would have a good chance to move up to the top. He did stick his tricks in his run and finished it with a one-footed X-up 720. But TJ Ellis had rolled out of a frontflip tailwhip earlier and had a great variety of tricks. Whatever, it is nice not having to judge for a change so I shouldn't be letting this get to me right now. Nyquist 1, TJ 2, and Brandon Dosch 3.

Not everyone knows that FATBMX is based in The Netherlands. Although most of our visitors come from the USA, we don't always have access to the latest and greatest that comes out of the USA. We do have lots of contributors that fill us in and we do make trips over to Eastcoast Cali (inside joke) from time to time. We have landed in Salt Lake City for the thrid stop of the 2009 Dew Tour series and this FAT Friday we'll fill you in on the latest news that we picked up on the first day in Salt Lake.
