Dew Tour returning to Portland this summer with streetstyle event

    Celebrating its ten-year anniversary, the Dew Tour will return to Portland for a two-day streetstyle-focused event, August 16-17. NBC will air two and a half hours of original programming from the Toyota City Championships, as well as two hours on NBCSN.

    “With its heritage of action sports, Portland is an ideal host city for Dew Tour events, demonstrated for seven straight years after coming in as a founding host city in 2005. We’re excited to have found another great location to host our streetstyle competitions,” said Eric Grilly, President, Alli Sports. “It’s fitting that we return to such an iconic Dew Tour city during our 10th Anniversary season, bringing back the sports we’ve always supported but showcased through our progressive new competitions.”

    “We are absolutely thrilled to bring the Dew Tour back to its roots and can’t wait to see the new streetstyle format in downtown Portland,” said Oregon Sports Authority CEO Drew Mahalic. “We owe a huge thanks to the City of Portland, Travel Portland and several downtown area businesses and organizations who stepped up with us to make the Dew Tour’s return possible.”

    The Dew Tour will return to Portland for the first time since 2011 for the two-day streetstyle event, followed by a second streetstyle event in Brooklyn, N.Y September 20-21. The season will once again start in Ocean City, Md. for the fourth consecutive year June 25-29, and wrap up from Breckenridge Ski Resort, in Breckenridge, Colo., December 11-14.

    “The City is very happy to welcome the Dew Tour back to Portland for this unique streetstyle event. We are pleased the national and international audience will see the heart of our great city as the backdrop to the excitement and action of these competitions,” said Charlie Hales, Mayor of Portland. “The Dew Tour is a great organization to work with and the efforts by City Council members and bureau staff to make this all happen show how much Portland appreciates sports of all kinds.”

    The Dew Tour schedule will incorporate specific sports and disciplines:

    BMX Streetstyle
    BMX Dirt Session
    Skateboard Streetstyle

    The 2014 Dew Tour will be available on NBC, NBC Sports Network and NBC Sports Live Extra where Dew Tour’s dedicated digital platform – will stream live competitions and bring consumers exclusive Dew Tour action, interviews and behind-the-scenes access on desktops, mobile device and tablets.
