In his third year competing on Dew Tour, Canadian street skater Ryan Decenzo heads into the Dew Tour Championships with the overall lead. He’s trailed by Paul Rodriguez, and either guy can take home the Cup with a win in Vegas.
Concrete street courses made for some heated competition on the Dew Tour this season. P-Rod earned the first street win of the season in Portland while Decenzo took second. Next up was Salt Lake City, where Decenzo won and P-Rod finished in third.
“I started off really rough so I’m happy that I was able to fight my way up and get onto the podium and still keep myself in the race for the Dew Cup,” Rodriguez said after Salt Lake. “I definitely have some work to do but I’m still in a position where it’s possible.”

For the event in Las Vegas, the concrete will be poured inside the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
“I’m pumped for Vegas to see what the course looks like,” Decenzo said after Salt Lake. “This was an awesome setup here so I’m just pumped to skate there and watch everybody else skate.”
Course designs have been released and the layout is so sectional that it will become a battle of consistency and technical abilities on rails and hubbas. To see who walks away with the Cup, tickets are available to check out the skate street finals Friday night, followed by a 50 Cent concert included in the ticket price.
