Presented by Good Fight Entertainment and brought to you by Landshark Wheels, ShredorDie.com and FUEL TV, Mike V’s Glory Bound Tour will kick off in each stop with a “premium ticketing mentoring session” that will allow a limited number of fans to join Mike V on his tour bus and gain access to the skating legend for a half hour of bonding and Q&A. Anyone who witnessed Mike V on his recent Zumiez promotional tour (which averaged over 1,500 attendees per market) knows that the athlete’s exceptional physical abilities on a skateboard can only be outdone by his unique and deep-seated ability to inspire today’s youth.
After the completion of the mentoring sessions at every stop on the tour, local skate competitions — billed as “The Best Trick Expression Session” – will begin. Finalists from each competition will be rewarded with the opportunity to skate with Mike V later in the day and will also be featured on his video blog and his massively popular website mikevallely.com. Grand prize winners in each city will win coveted sponsor prize packages and one national grand prize winner from the tour will be flown into Los Angeles along with a guest / guardian for MIKE V’s to-be-announced “Skate Rock” festival which will take place in October, 2010.
“The Mike V Show” will culminate each day’s activities on the “GLORY BOUND SKATEPARK TOUR 2010”. Joining MIKE V on every stop of the traveling festival will be street skating legend “The Nomad” Bill Danforth plus Kristian Svitak, Ben Raybourn and Cyril Jackson. All throughout the day’s events a professional DJ / Emcee will be on hand to provide a soundtrack of hardcore punk, heavy metal and hard rock “to keep the skaters on fire, the fans energized, and the atmosphere electric.” Three quarters of the way through the pro skaters’ performance, the local winners will have the opportunity join MIKE V and skate side by side with him and the other pros. Each stop on the tour will wrap with an autograph session involving all the participants and the fans in attendance.
