SKATEBOARDERS’ SHOWDOWN SET AT CIRCUIT MAKATI
Amateur Filipino skateboarders will have an adrenaline-charged showdown at Circuit Makati and try to win a trip to the Dew Tour USA, one of the biggest and most-awaited events for skaters around the world.
The face-off at Circuit Makati, called the Dew Tour Am Series, brings the winners of three grassroots events called bootcamps that took place in Laguna, Cebu, and Davao. Though the Dew Tour Am Series is happening for the second time in the Philippines, this year marks the first time that Mountain Dew® hosted the bootcamps for skaters outside Metro Manila.
“We had a great time when we held the Dew Tour Am Series for the first time in the Philippines last year but we wanted more skateboarders to display their talent and tricks. That’s why we held the bootcamps ahead of the Dew Tour AM Series,” said PepsiCo Flavors Category Manager.
“Skateboarding earned a unique energy and color over the years and Mountain Dew is proud that it has become a part of the growing momentum through the Dew Tour Am Series,” she added.
Aside from the skateboarders’ competition, Mountain Dew pro skateboarders Theotis Beasley, Chris Colbourn and Reemo Pearson will make a demo of their best tricks and moves at the Dew Tour Am Series. The skating legends will also show their support for the local skateboarding community.
“The Philippine skate scene has overwhelming energy and I am really glad that I was able to witness an extraordinary display of talent. I hope skaters here will sustain the skating passion which is growing around the world” Mr. Beasley said.
The winner of the Dew Tour Am Series will also win P75,000 in cash. The second and third place winners will also receive cash prizes.
