Open since last December, Grant Park's skate park hosted its first nationally broadcast event earlier this month when the Dew Tour came to town. Skateboarders and BMX bikers from across the U.S.—among them Alec Majerus of Rochester, Minnesota; Curren Caples of Ventura, California; and even Chicagoans like Chaz Ortiz—competed for medals in BMX Street, BMX Streetstyle, Skate Street, and Skate Streetstyle. 

Here's a collection of photos from the electrifying event.
