It has been a week but if you did not catch the Dew Tour on TV it was pretty ugly. On live NBC Sports TV Scotty decided to go for his first double flip and ending up sliding across the floor on his face with his teeth sliding next to him. No one know exactly what he was thinking, the adrenaline of the moment just takes over sometimes.. The medical staff actually put his teeth back in his mouth and said they will heal by themselves, the human body is crazy. He also ended up with a few stitches in his chin. Yes, he will be wearing a full face helmet from now on and am guessing a lot of other riders will be doing the same, the level of riding is getting too crazy.
The top action sports athletes have been traversing the globe for the entire year vying for the opportunity to qualify for the much-coveted invitation to the LG Action Sports World Tour Championships in Dallas, Texas. As the event draws near, the competition and level of riding have become fierce as these world class competitors push the limits of determination not to mention their bodies, driving their sports to the absolute edge. With podium regulars like John Parker and Kevin Robinson competing all year with a bad shoulder the door is left open for lesser known athletes like Mike Mancuso from North Carolina who shocked everyone in the last event by unleashing a perfect tailwhip flair in the middle of his run.
