The Dew Tour Toyota City Championships made its debut in New York on September 20-21. The Dew Tour is a four tour stop featuring disciplines across BMX, skateboard, freeski and snowboard, with additional competitions integrated throughout the year. In celebration of the Dew Tour’s tenth anniversary, a streetstyle focused event was added to the tour, allowing New Yorkers were able to experience the Dew Tour in their hometown for the first time since the Dew Tour was created.
The Dew Tour had approximately 17,000 fans lining Franklin Street outside the House of Vans in Brooklyn throughout the weekend. Some the best athletes across the globe in skateboarding and BMX were in attendance this weekend to complete for the Dew Cup.
Pro BMX rider Dennis Enarson took advantage of all New York had to offer over the weekend, “I love Brooklyn and Manhattan, it’s so much fun. I’ve been riding across all of the bridges, hanging out with friends in the city and hanging in Brooklyn – it’s awesome” he said.
Saturday marked the beginning of the contests with BMX Street and Skateboard Street competitions taking place at the House of Vans. The BMX Street competition was won by Dennis Enarson with a score of 89.25, followed by Chad Kearley with a score of 88.58 and Garrett Reynolds with a score of 87.58.
Ishod Wair took home the win in Skateboard Street with a score of 89.58 in his debut weekend at the Dew Tour, with Trevor Cohen and Louie following in second and third place with scores of 88.33 and 85.75, respectively.
Newcomer Ishod Wair also took home the award for “Sweet Trick of the Day,” presented Mike and Ike, for back nose blunt, showcasing the trick with the most originality and progression during the competition.
The Brooklyn stop of the Dew Tour concluded on Sunday with BMX Streetstyle and Skateboard Streetstyle competitions on Sunday. Garrett Reynolds took home the win in BMX Streetstyle with a score of 90.75, the only score over 90, followed by Dennis Enarson and fellow New Jersey native Scotty Cranmer with a score of 89.25.
“This is the first time I’ve ever had anything like this one state over because I live in New Jersey; so this has been unreal and to have just an awesome weekend capped with a podium finish is great. Having it [the Dew Tour] only an hour drive away, having everyone cheering for me and excited to see me ride made me that more excited to go out there and put on a show for everyone” pro BMX rider Scotty Cranmer said.
Skateboard Streetstyle was won by Trevor Colden at his first Dew Tour nonetheless. Trevor earned the top score of 91.25, followed by Evan Smith and Ryan Decenzo with scores of 88.75 and 87.25 respectively.
By Desenczo’s last run of the contest it was unclear if he would make the podium, however the energy of the audience helped him side into the third position. “There was a great crowd, a couple of times I was cruising down, and I just heard the crowd screaming, it just got me fired up! I was like what? I’m not going to miss this trick now, I just knew it, I just felt the energy from them, it was really good” Decenzo said referencing the last contest of the weekend.
