Dew Tour Nike 6.0 BMX Open

27 June 2009 No Comment

Even though the Crosstown Classic at U.S. Cellular Field was taking place Friday afternoon, I chose to attend the Dew Tour’s Nike 6.0 BMX Open in Grant Park. The Dew Tour was established in 2005 and is considered the world’s premier action sports tour – whereas ESPN’s X Games is a single event. Also, with the Taste of Chicago taking place right across the street, I figured this was a good day to take in both events.

Obtaining Tickets
I bought a $15 ticket when I arrived at the event. Little did I know I could have entered the event for free. $15 gave me access to the bleachers in order to sit, but I could have stood for free. I stood most of the event anyway since the bleachers were in the sun and I could stand in the shade.

The Event
As with any Action Sport event there are plenty of activities going on besides the actual event and there are tons of giveaways. The main giveaways at this event were Wendy’s free single hamburgers and Ball Park Franks free hot dogs.

Josh Hult won the BMX Dirt Finals which was the only Finals scheduled for Friday. I also attended the Taste of Chicago during the 30 minutes between each event.
