Dew Tour Recap
As this summer comes to an end, let’s take a look back and recap some of the awesome things our favorite extreme athlete’s were up to, shall we?
The Dew Tour moved locations from San Francisco to Portland Oregon this year. The country’s finest tranny and street skaters came together to skate in the infamous downhill course, which was equipped with a ramp over a car, huge rails, stair sets and insanely large gaps.
The Portland ground ended up being way too rocky, thrashing many skaters. The wind was also working against the athlete’s as it slowed them down and not giving them enough speed for the big jumps they were preparing for.
Ryan Sheckler took his third consecutive win in the downhill street course. Alec Majerus came in a close second, as Curren Caples took third. Riley Hawk came in fourth (Tony Hawk’s son.)
These guys are best known for their big air tricks and transition skating. Street skaters, Garrett Hill, Corey Duffel and Greg Lutzka were the skaters there, known more for their smooth street style.
