Dennis Enarson won BMX Dirt at the Dew Tour Portland Invitational on Sunday. Enarson and Kyle Baldock battled for the win until the final run, with Enarson ultimately securing the top score. In talking about his final run, Enarson said, "I looked at the score and we were still pretty close, so I figured if I added in a couple extra tricks it would work out. And I just barely got in front of him, so that was sick."
Enarson's first run included a truckdriver down the roll in, barspin to tuck, cannonball to superman, tailwhip to long and low and a 360 suicide double truck off the last jump. Baldock, who landed his first double backflip, came in second place, and defending Dew Cup champ Brandon Dosch finished third.
