Dew Tour Open Qualifiers went down late last night in Baltimore, MD. Things got pushed back due to wind, but the wind just kept going through the night, so the riders just handled it and rode. The last rider was done after 1AM and, after the dust settled, etnies riders Todd Potter and Japanese import Taka (Takayuki Higashino) made it through the open qualifier! Derek Garland didn't quite make the cut with all the tough competition, but he will be back in Cleveland to give it another try.
In case you were wondering, Twitch and Jim McNeil are pre-qualified, so they didn't have to deal with the OQ. Prelims were supposed to happen today, but wind and rain put that off until tomorrow if the course drys out. Hopefully it does!
We added some photos to the Dew Tour photo gallery that you should check out. Also, if you're going to attend the Baltimore Dew Tour, or any Dew Tour stops for that matter, you can take your own photos and share them with everyone on etniesmotox.com!
How can this be possible? It's easy. Get a Flickr account and tag your photos with ASTDEWTOUR and we'll handle the rest... or follow these easy steps...
Ryan Sheckler stopped by to check the qualifier with Twitch...
...and then it rained. Where's the plastic for the FMX course!?!?
