The Glenbourne Identity

Onslow native Drew Bezanson is a natural on a BMX and probably spends more time on his bike than off. Growing up in Truro, Nova Scotia, he started to ride a bike at the early age of two, so it’s no surprise that amateur BMX riders want to get tips from him. On Saturday, May 28, bike enthusiasts will celebrate the re-opening of the Glenbourne Park, which was designed in collaboration with Drew and in the afternoon, clinics will be offered for all BMX riders, plus a jam-style contest in which Drew will take part.

The Glenbourne Park is being been completely revamped with major improvements to the run-in’s, Pump Track (scheduling permitted), and the park is being beought to a standard that will be fully functional. All of the features will be brought to the next level, so it can be used as a proper community bike park again.

About Drew Bezanson
The 21-year-old BMX sensation’s 2010 season has been his best yet with wins at his first three contests: the Simpel Session in Estonia, the Toronto Jam, and the Jomo Pro BMX comp. He then went on to take top spot in prelims at the Portland stop of the Dew Tour before finishing just off the podium in 4th in BMX Park. Bezanson was awarded the 2010 Transworld BMX NORA Cup for Ramp Rider of the year, a prestigious award that is the equivalent to the Academy Award in the BMX world.

So far in 2011 Drew has continued his consistent riding by repeating at the Simpel Session in Estonia in February and a second place finish at the Toronto Jam in March. The future promises big things for this BMX phenom who has his eyes set on nothing less than the X-Games and of course the Dew Tour.
