The Dew Tour, the world's premier season-long action sports tour, begins the fifth and final stop of the 2009 season on Thursday, October 15 at Amway Arena. The Dew Tour returns to Orlando for the fifth consecutive year for the PlayStation Pro. The five-city tour kicked off in Chicago in June, and continued on to Boston in July, Portland in August and Salt Lake City in September.
The PlayStation Pro marks the conclusion of the 2009 season, where this year's Dew Cup champions will be crowned at Sunday's awards ceremony in their respective disciplines BMX park, vert and dirt and skateboard park and vert. All eyes will be on Orlando to see who will come out on top.
In BMX park, it's new school phenomenon, Garrett Reynolds, against old school veteran, Dave Mirra. Reynolds currently sits in first and needs a podium finish in Orlando to secure his first-ever Dew Cup. The most decorated BMX athlete of all time and with two podium finishes this Dew Tour season, second-place Mirra won't give up without a fight.
Skate vert is the tightest race for the Cup in the history of the Dew Tour. The top three athletes - Bucky Lasek in first, Pierre-Luc Gagnon in second and Andy Macdonald in third - are separated by only six points, so winner takes all at the PlayStation Pro.
Leading the charge in skateboard park are Dew Tour rookies Chris Cole and Ryan Decenzo. Cole has a 24-point lead over Decenzo and a 34-point lead over defending Dew Cup champion, Chaz Ortiz. If Cole lands on the podium he'll win his first-ever Dew Cup, but with the level of talent competing it's anyone's game.
Jamie Bestwick may make Dew Tour history at the BMX vert final. If he places first, he will be the first athlete to win every stop of the season, and the only athlete to win five consecutive Dew Cups.
In addition to the competitions, the PlayStation Pro will feature freestyle motocross under the lights on Friday night, a daily Festival Village with interactive booths, athlete autograph signings and free product giveaways and a Sunday evening concert headlined by rapper Flo Rida to close out the season.
