Sunday as I was walking along the riverfront, I was trying to get a closer look at the colassal new skatboard park that opens along the West riverfront in May. I couldn't get close because it was all fenced in. Amazing news was announced today!!! The Dew Tour will host its only Olympic qualifying skateboarding event at the brand new Lauridsen Skatepark May 20-23. What an opening for this park!!!
Skateboarding is a new event for the Olympics and this will be the only United States qualifying event! How exciting!!!! The best skateboarders in the world will be here in May. They are still deciding if spectators will be able to watch the events. In any case, it will be streamed on Dewtour.com.
The Lauridsen Skatepark is the largest skatepark in the country and was built to hold these types of events.
