Local grom Phil Hansen has his eye on the top prize: a chance to skate against the pros at the Dew Tour Championships in Las Vegas. Last year I made it all the way to the Free Flow Tour finals, says Hansen, now thirteen. I tweaked my knee and it didnt work out, but I was stoked to skate that course with a bunch of people watching and get a feel for what it would be like to be on the actual Dew Tour. Now Ive got a taste for it.
Skateboard events are scheduled for today, with BMX topping tomorrows agenda; spectating for both is free. Registration is $15; skaters under the age of 21 can sign up at the park between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. or in advance at www.gatoradefreeflowtour.com.
