Dave Mirra Among Qualified Tour Athletes Competing for Coveted Dew Cup
NEW YORK â€“ July 19, 2005 â€“ The Dew Action Sports Tour, the first-ever, season-long professional multi-sport tour in action sports, announced the athletes who qualified for the remaining three Tour stops.
The 2005 Dew Action Sports Tour features competitions in the six disciplines of Skateboard Park and Vert; BMX Dirt, Park and Vert; and Freestyle Motocross. Depending on the discipline, 18 to 27 athletes have qualified to compete at the VansÂ® Invitational, Toyota Challenge and PlayStationÂ® Pro. These athletes qualified because their cumulative points from the Tour’s first two stops were high enough to make the cut. Two or three wild card spots, per discipline, will be announced at a later date. The first two Tour stops, the Panasonic Open and Right Guard Open, included open qualifying competitions which allowed new talent to enter the contest with the possibility of competing for the rest of the season. The fields are now firmly established, with several open qualifiers making the cut.
