Old news to some, new news to others, the Dew Action Sports Tour, the first-ever, season-long multi-sport professional tour in action sports will debut in June of 2005.

A series of five major, multi-sport Tour events, the 2005 Dew Action Sports Tour boasts the biggest competitive purse in action sports, a Million-Dollar Bonus Pool based upon year-end standings, and the largest network and cable television broadcasting commitment ever. In addition to the primary sports of skateboarding, BMX, and freestyle motocross, each tour stop will feature a unique “specialty comp”, such as snowboarding or wakeboarding.

Key lifestyle elements at each Tour event will include live cutting-edge music, video gaming, and interactive events. The Tour was announced last March and is owned and operated by NBC Sports and Clear Channel Entertainment - Motor Sports.

NBC Sports Ventures, which produces 80 hours of programming annually for the NBC Television Network, plans 19 hours of primarily live coverage for the 2005 Dew Action Sports Tour. A cable broadcast partner and programming plans will be announced at a later date.

Clear Channel Entertainment – Motor Sports, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Worldwide, and a producer of specialized motor sports events, stages 600 events per year and will be an integral partner on the Dew Action Sports Tour. Clear Channel Entertainment – Motor Sports will lend its expertise in live event touring and promotion, including a wide range of off-channel assets from Clear Channel’s Radio, Outdoor and Music divisions.
