Everyone knows you don’t mess with Chuck Norris. First of all, they once made a Chuck Norris toilet paper, but there was a problem: It wouldn’t take sh*t from anybody.

Chuck Norris always knows the EXACT location of Carmen San Diego.

When Chuck Norris talks, everybody listens. And dies.

Godzilla is a Japanese rendition of Chuck Norris’ first visit to Tokyo.

OK, OK, I think you get it. Anyhow, it’s his birthday today, and the Winter Dew Tour is celebrating.

                                             

Familiar with Chuck Norris, but not the Winter Dew Tour? The Winter Dew Tour is an action sports tour that consists of three multi-sport events spanning the United States, with a $1.5 million prize purse. The Winter Dew Tour began its first season in December 2008. It is the first ever action sports tour for winter sports and is owned and operated by Alli, the Alliance of Action Sports. With a summer tour counterpart that debuted in 2005, the Winter Dew Tour consists of three events in which snowboard and freeski athletes earn points over the course of the season for a shot at the year-end title. There will be multiple events at each stop on the Tour, each including superpipe and slopestyle disciplines for both men and women. The events will be televised live on NBC plus other coverage on USA, MTV, and MTV 2.

Many of the top athletes in action sports from around the world will be participating in the Winter Dew Tour. Athletes such as Kevin Pearce, Hannah Teter, Tanner Hall, Andreas Wiig, Gretchen Bleiler, Simon Dumont, and Jamie Anderson will all be vying for the coveted Dew Cup, awarded at season’s end.

Event disciplines for the men will include slopestyle and superpipe snowboarding as well as slopestyle and superpipe skiing. The disciplines for the women include slopestyle and superpipe snowboarding. The athletes will be competing for a piece of the $1.5 million prize purse based on individual event performance and year-end standings. Points leaders in each of the snowboarding and freeskiing disciplines will be awarded the Dew Cup, while the winner with the most overall points will also receive the title of Athlete of the Year.

“From an athlete’s perspective, we are all really fired up about the inaugural Winter Dew Tour season,” said Simon Dumont, 2007 World Superpipe Champion. “The [Winter Dew Tour] has had huge success with their Summer series and we in the Winter sports world have been waiting for something like the Dew Tour for some time.”
