Dew Action Sports Tour Slates Cleveland Stop

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Dew Action Sports Tour will make a stop in Cleveland this summer.

The tour features skateboarding, BMX and freestyle motocross. It's scheduled to visit the city's North Coast Harbor July 19th through the 22nd as the second of five stops on its 2007 schedule.

Cleveland has shown it can attract an action sports audience, having hosted the Gravity Games from 2002 to 2004.

David Gilbert, president and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, says he expects the Dew tour stop to infuse ten million dollars into the local economy.

The tour is owned by NBC Universal and Live Nation and offers a competitive purse of more than three million dollars.
