Look Who’s Coming to Portland

So you’re getting excited for the Wendy’s Invitational in Portland, and you’re probably starting to wonder who you’ll get to see throw down at the Rose Quarter.

The answer is: everyone. Well, maybe not technically ‘everyone’, but with the first three-sport stop of the Dew Tour this summer, it does feel a bit like a full-on reunion. With over 140 skateboarders and riders heading up to P-town, we promise it’ll be a great week. We’ve got everyone who ended up on top so far at the Nike 6.0 BMX Open and Skate Open ISF Skateboarding World Championships up to defend their #1 spots: Hult, Mirra, Bestwick, Sheckler, and Lasek. We also have everyone who landed on podiums at those stops, from Chris Cole to Ryan Decenzo to Ryan Nyquist to Steven McCann. 

We also have a bunch of people fresh off stellar X Games performances who could be looking to ride that momentum to a win in Portland: golden boys PLG, Garrett Reynolds, and P-Rod; and guys like Adam Dyet and Rob Lorifice, who got some taste of podium action and could want to stay up there…

And if that weren’t enough, we also are going to have some tales of comeback.  We’ve got a couple Dew Cup winners who are going to have to fight a little to defend their titles (Daniel Dhers and Cam White, we’re looking at you). Scotty Cranmer surprised everyone by not just riding the Dirt OQ but by ending up 14th in the standings, while ending much lower in Park. With an X-Games Gold in Park, Scotty could be looking to be a double threat.

Last, but definitely not least, it’s finally time for FMX to make it’s appearance on the 2009 Dew Tour, with a FMX jam session featuring Jeremy Stenberg, Mike Mason, Ronnie Faisst, Adam Jones, Nate Adams, Robbie Maddison, and Jeff Fehr.
