Portland, one ofthe best biking cities in the country host the Wendys Invitational Dew Tour Event. DB had 3 riders invited, Diogo, Nate and Rob Armour. The video above has some practice and qualifying runs.
Diogo made dirt finals and finished 12th. If not for a slipped pedal coming out of the berm I feel very confident that Joe woould have been on the podium. In park he missed the finals by 3 spots. With the level of riding out there these days that is as good as making the finals in my book.
Nate fell hard in practice on a 3 turndown gone bad and tore his should up, but that didnt stop him from sending his first 3-whip in competition. Nate is at home resting that broken wing getting ready the Salt Lake Dew Tour Stop.
Rob, what can i say about the 19 year old. He missed his flight out but got it sorted out and got to Portland. He broke his bike twice once on the flair you see in the video and another on a front flip to stem bolt breakage (neither were DB parts). Rob has all the tricks and when he decides to show case his skills to the world he will be a force to be dealt with.
Diogo, Nate and Rob are qualified for the Salt Lake Toyota Challenge next month so stay tuned for more video of them killing the comps.
