On the streets of Portland, Ore., it was only Dennis Enarson who appeared at ease. Facing a challenging Dew Tour Streetstyle course, Enarson nailed a perfect run straight out of the gate, and after that it was smooth sailing for him while the rest of the field played catch-up. “I am so hyped! [Streetstyle] are always my favorite courses of the year, so I always have the most fun riding them,” Enarson said. “This feels way more at home to me as a street contest, because a lot of the other street courses, like the X Games, are real jibby, which is still fun for me… but this is more like me and the kind of stuff I ride. You go a lot faster and ride a lot bigger stuff.”
