THE AST Dew Tour is back in town and is should be another fabulous show.

These athletes are amazing and the competition runs all-weekend at the Rose Quarter. The dew tour is a showcase competition for Skate boarders, Bike riders and Motorcyclists. BMX Park features dozens of riders doing bicycle tricks, led by season pts leader Daniel Dhers and Defending Portland champion Mike Spinner. Spinner, loves the setup at the Rose Garden, "I walked around and went, Oh my god," said Spinner, "This course is amazing. I love the course. It is just asking for tricks, tricks and tricks. That's what I'm all about. That's how I have fun." Last month in Cleveland, Spinner lived up to his name and became the first man ever to land a Quad Whip in competition. That's whipping the bicycle around four times in mid air and then landing it. Pretty good stuff.

I saw the action last year and it's great. By the way, if you can't get there in person, it's on NBC this weekend. In fact, the BMX Park is Sunday in between Olympic coverage, so they are expecting their biggest TV audience ever!.

Enjoy.
