BUCKY LASEK WINS SKATE VERT FINALS AT THE DEW TOUR'S PLAYSTATION PRO IN ORLANDO
Bucky Lasek in Skate Vert Crowned 2009 Dew Cup Champion
Bucky Lasek of Baltimore, Md. won the skate vert finals and secured the Dew Cup in the closest race for the Cup in Dew Tour history. Heading into Orlando, Lasek, Canada's Pierre-Luc Gagnon and Boston-native Andy Macdonald were separated by a mere six points in the overall Tour standings. It was anyone's game heading into the finals, and the last five standing in the final jam session were the who's who in skate vert – Lasek, Gagnon, Macdonald, and Brazilian shredders Sandro Dias and Bob Burnquist.
Lasek pulled into the lead in his last run with his switch 360 backlip, switch 540 and nollie flip stalefish to earn him a first-place score of 90.88. Macdonald followed with a score of 85.63 and Dias came in a close third with his crowd-pleasing varials, like a body varial 540 to tuck knee, earning him a final score of 84.74.
Lasek three-peats as Dew Cup champion, having won in 2005 and again in 2006.
