Marking a major sponsorship milestone, the Dew Tour announced today a multi-year deal with Nike 6.0, part of Nike's action sports division, as the new event title sponsor of the BMX-specific stop of the Dew Tour. Nike 6.0 will debut its new sponsorship role at the Nike 6.0 BMX Open in Chicago's Grant Park, June 26-27, 2009, but will continue as an associate sponsor for the remaining 2009 Summer and Winter Dew Tour stops. In addition to showcasing the BMX park, vert and dirt disciplines that have been a staple on the Dew Tour over its five-year history, Nike 6.0 will be adding a "true street" specialty competition to the first ever Nike 6.0 BMX Open. The street comp will consist of nine riders divided into teams of three with a filmer for each team. The three captains - Garrett Reynolds, Van Homan and Sean Sexton (chosen based on their X Games 14 podium finishes) - will choose their teammates for the competition, and the winning team will be judged by a combination of scores from a jam session on June 26 and a video part created prior to the jam.
