Confirmed Athletes Attending Ocean City

Alli Sports, a division of the NBC Sports Group, today announced the confirmed athletes for the Dew Tour Beach Championships in Ocean City, Md, June 20-23.  Over the course of four days, the top names in skateboarding and BMX will grind, grab and flip their way in the quest for the coveted Dew Cup. Fans can see the Dew Tour on NBC, NBC Sports Network and DewTour.com, June 22-23.

The Dew Tour Beach Championships will debut the Skate and BMX “Battle at the Beach” Street Sessions.  Top skate and BMX street competitors will hit a 10-stair rail and hubba set-up on the beach, for a high energy jam format contest.  Past Dew Tour champions Ryan Decenzo and Greg Lutzka will contend with Manny Santiago, Dave Bachinsky and others in the Skate Battle while Garrett Reynolds, Chad Kerley and Jeremiah Smith are set to face off in the BMX Battle. 

The Dew Tour will bring the concrete bowl to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, where Pedro Barros will go for his third straight Dew Tour Skate Bowl win.  He’ll have tough competition against Baltimore native Bucky Lasek and young gun Tom Schaar.  Schaar and Lasek will split their time between the bowl and the vert ramp, where there is no shortage of talent.  Mitchie Brusco and Schaar are both on their way to impressive seasons, and will have to keep it up to defeat veterans Lasek, Bob Burnquist, Pierre-Luc Gagnon and others. 

The bowl will also host the Legends competition, highlighting the pioneers who wrote the book on transition skating.  Steve Caballero, Christian Hosoi, Duane Peters and Chris Miller will compete against their longtime friends for a Dew Cup title.

The BMX Park will be the hottest place on the sand with the top talent in BMX bringing their best to the rider-designed course.  New Jersey natives Scotty Cranmer and Garrett Reynolds will join Kyle Baldock and Drew Bezanson in the fight for top honors.  Fans will also have a chance to see living legend Jamie Bestwick compete against Chad Kagy and Steve McCann in his attempt to win his ninth consecutive Dew Tour BMX Vert title.  BMX Flatland makes its return to Ocean City with Terry Adams and Matt Wilhelm among the athletes defying the laws of physics on the Dew Tour stage.
