Fans Choose Scotty Cranmer As Winner After Perfect Turn Down Front Flip During BMX Park Finals
The Dew Action Sports Tour, the first-ever, season-long professional multi-sport tour in action sports, announced the first winner of the PlayStationÂ® Trick of the Week Award.
Voting began after all competitions at the Dew Action Sports Tour’s Panasonic Open ended Sunday, June 12. Voting was held online at www.dewactionsportstour.com until Sunday, June 19. Scotty Cranmer won Trick of the Week with his perfect Turn Down Front Flip.
â€œI’m so psyched that I won the PlayStation Trick of the Week award,â€? said Cranmer. â€œIt’s awesome that people voted and appreciated my front flip.â€?
Cranmer beat out fellow BMX-er Corey Bohan who also executed a fantastic Front Flip during BMX Dirt Finals. Skateboarder Bucky Lasek also threw down a Frontside Cab Heel Flip on the vert ramp, which looked effortless as he landed it cleanly. Paul Rodriguez’s Nollie Kickflip 360 over the couch during Skateboard Park Finals earned him a 3rd place finish in that competition, but was not enough to win the PlayStation Trick of the Week. In Freestyle Motocross, Jeremy Stenberg pulled a No-Handed Backflip that wowed the crowd, but in the end the online community chose Scotty Cranmer.
Cranmer wins $5,000 and will compete for the PlayStationÂ® Trick of the Year versus all the other Trick of the Week winners from other Dew Action Sports Tour events, including the Right Guard Open (July 7-10), VansÂ® Invitational (August 18-21) and Toyota Challenge (September 8-11). Online polls open on the last day of each event.
Polls will be open throughout the PlayStationÂ® Pro (October 13-16) where online voters will choose the Trick of the Year winner from the four Trick of the Week winners. The winner will be announced during the NBC broadcast on Sunday, October 16. This athlete will take home $10,000 in cash as well as other PlayStationÂ® prizes.
