Hi, my name is Drew Bezanson. My discipline is BMX Park. I was born on 5 May 1989 in Nova Scotia, Canada. My philosophy of life is keep smiling. The most important person in my life is my mom. My favourite food is sushi. My favourite music is I'm into everything.


Growing up in Truro, Nova Scotia, on the East Coast of Canada meant long winters and seclusion from the rest of the BMX world for Drew Bezanson, but persistence and a genuine passion for riding his BMX to the best of his ability has certainly begun to pay off.

Drew is a natural on a BMX and probably spends more time on his bike than off. Among the many crown jewels in his trophy case are the 2010 and 2012 Transworld BMX NORA Cups for Ramp Rider of the year.

Since his breakout year in 2010, Drew has become renowned as one of the top BMX park riders in the world. In both 2011 and 2012, he picked up a Simple Session first place, and has since won several editions of the Baltic Games in Gdansk in typical flamboyant style.

Drew is all about sharing and collaborating too; he invited his elite BMX buds to come up to Toronto for a training session at the Joyride 150 bike park for the Red Bull Air Awareness Camp. The camp combined practising crazy new tricks with a vigorous training regime to help the riders achieve peak physical condition for the year ahead.

Drew's success has seen him steadily begin to conquer the international stage; a solid performance at the X Games in Barcelona in 2013 saw him take sixth place, just behind Daniel Dhers, and a fifth place in Munich. Drew has also claimed the gold medal at Red Bull Framed Reactions in Amsterdam. 2014 afforded him a silver medal at the Austin X Games and his talent looks to earn him much more global success in the future.
