Dew Tour Making its Premiere Stop in Brooklyn

BURR RIDGE, Ill., Sept. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NBC Sports Group continues the 10th Anniversary season of the Dew Tour with the Toyota City Championships in Brooklyn, N.Y. on September 20 - 21. With many of the world's best athletes in BMX and skateboarding confirmed for the third stop of the 2014 Dew Tour schedule, the Toyota City Championships will make its premiere stop in Brooklyn.

The two-day street-oriented competition will take place at the House of Vans, as riders go head-to-head in the heart of Brooklyn. Competitions will include BMX streetstyle, skateboard streetstyle, BMX street and skateboard street. In addition, Dew Tour organizers worked with the City to close down Franklin Street for a distinctive streetstyle course which will combine real-life street obstacles with reinforced structures to provide competitors with an exciting redesign from previous years. Inside House of Vans, the street course will challenge athletes to demonstrate technical skills as they create unique lines through the features.

"Brooklyn has arguably been the most anticipated stop of the 2014 Dew Tour," said Chris Stiepock, Vice President and General Manager of the Dew Tour, Alli Sports. "The city's culture and long-standing affinity for these sports make it the ideal host city for our unique, streetstyle event and we are excited for the city's reception."

"There aren't many places in the world where the culture of skate comes to life through the sights and sounds of a city, but Brooklyn is one of those unique places," said Greg Lyons, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Mountain Dew. "In action sports, bringing that culture to life through creativity and community is what it's all about and we couldn't imagine a more authentic place than Brooklyn to see that happen at Dew Tour."

In the skateboard street competition, fans can expect to see Paul Rodriguez looking to prove himself once again on the Dew Tour course against Sean Malto and regional favorite Manny Santiago. In the BMX street competition, Portland Dew Cup Champion Dennis Enarson will look to defend his title against top competitors Chad Kerley and Garrett Reynolds. Outside on the Dew Tour's unique streetstyle course, athletes including Drew Bezanson, Brian Kachinsky and Enarson in BMX and Greg Luztka, 18-year-old Curren Caples and Ryan Decenzo in skateboard will showcase their creativity for the Brooklyn audience. A full list of confirmed athletes can be found at www.DewTour.com.

"I am stoked to be making my 2014 Dew Tour return in Brooklyn," said Rodriquez. "This format really gets back to the core of skating and I'm excited to hit the course with some great competitors."

The Dew Tour will kick off Thursday night at House of Vans with a concert by R&B/hip-hop artist J Cole, complimented by the indie pop sounds of Bleachers, a newer American group created by Jack Antonoff of the band Fun.

The Dew Tour Toyota City Championships will air October 18-19 on NBC and NBCSN. Coverage kicks off with coverage from the Portland stop on Saturday, October 18 at 3 p.m. ET on NBC.
