PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Bob Burnquist won the skateboard vert event for his first AST Dew Tour victory of the season Saturday in the Wendy's Invitational.
The 31-year-old Brazilian captured the win in his final run with back-to-back combo tricks, including a switch kickflip indy to fakie, to finish at 91.25. Canada's Pierre-Luc Gagnon was second at 89.75, followed by Baltimore's Bucky Lasek at 86.50.
"It seems like when I have the pressure on I feel like I gotta stay on my board," Burnquist said. "These tricks are so technical and really to take the top slot these days you gotta roll the dice a lot. I felt like, hey this is the time to do it, last run."
The four-day competition is the third of five stops of the AST Dew Tour that features skateboarding, BMX and freestyle motocross. The tour's next stop is Salt Lake City on Sept. 11-14.
