Action Sports World Tour 2009 stops at Ohio
High-flying thrills will abound when the ASA Action Sports World Tour 2009, one of the industry’s oldest and most elite action sports circuits, makes a stop at Cincinnati's Kings Island for two days of intense competition.
As the fourth stop on the 2009 Action Sports World Tour, this event will feature the world’s top X Games pros in Skateboard, BMX and Freestyle Motocross (FMX) and offers a chance for competing athletes to gain valuable ranking points necessary for qualification into ASA Entertainment’s season-ending Action Sports World Championships.
For three hours each day, park visitors will witness heart-stopping action from the sport’s top athletes such as 2008 X Games and Skateboard Vert World Champion Pierre-Luc Gagnon (Montreal, CAN), former Skateboard World Champion Sandro Dias (Sa Paulo, BRA) Skateboard Vert Superstar Danny Mayer (Omaha, USA), 2008 X Games and BMX Vert World Champion Jamie Bestwick (Nottingham, GBR), 2008 X Games BMX Big Air Champion Chad Kagy (Gilroy, USA), and BMX Vert Superstar Simon Tabron (Newquay, GBR). Revving up the intensity will be the Freestyle Motocross pros whose back-flips and whips will leave spectators in awe.
As part of this action-packed event, Collective Soul will take to the Maxell Music Stage on May 24 for a full concert featuring their latest and greatest hits.
The two-day event, including the concerts, is included free with Kings Island park admission and season pass.
