TRURO - Drew Bezanson of Onslow Mountain posted a bronze-medal finish at the Red Bull Dirt Conquers BMX event in Guadalajara, Mexico on Sunday.

Drew Bezanson of Onslow Mountain was happy with a third-place finish at a BMX event in Mexico on Sunday.

Bezanson, a 24-year-old Red Bull rider, finished behind winner Kevin Peraza and silver-medalist Daniel Sandoval, both of the United States.

"I didn't expect this at all, I'm blown away," Bezanson told "My goal here was to have fun and to leave in one piece and I did both and couldn't be happier with third place."

Bezanson took it easy in practice, but stepped it up during the contest.

"I tried to save my energy," he told the website. "I only needed my legs for 90 seconds total and it worked out."

Bezanson's podium finish in Mexico came after a gold-medal performance at the Toronto BMX Jam in March.
