This weekend, the 2011 Dew Tour Championships descend on Las Vegas, Nev., and in the Park Class, Felt pro Scotty Cranmer sits second place in tour rankings, just 18 mere points behind the leader, Mirraco's Kyle Baldock. It's a tight race, one that Scotty Cranmer, a very humble professional, is shrugging off.
In the above video, shot just after his win at August's Portland Invitational (where he took the win), Cranmer discusses his strategy for 2011, which included not riding Dirt and concentrating on Park, and utilizing the entire Dew Tour Park course with a mixed variety of tricks, while going faster than most other riders in the class.
Clearly, Scotty's strategy has paid off, but now, as the Dew Tour Championships approach, he sits in a precarious position. Can he best Baldock in Vegas and take the Dew Cup? All that and more will be answered this weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
