MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour - Opening Day

For the first time since 2008, the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour returned to Acworth, Ga. today to host its 2010 season-opening event. The Pro Tour, which runs through Saturday, May 22, in Acworth at Dallas Landing Park, opened its first day of action with qualifying rounds for 35 riders.

?

Each of the 35 riders hit the water today, vying for one of 24 spots in tomorrow’s Round of 40, where they will be joined by last year’s top-16 ranked athletes on the 2009 Pro Tour.

?

Among the 24 riders advancing onto the Round of 40 from today’s qualifiers is local wakeboarder Brett Lee of Jackson, Ga.

?

“It’s great to have the Pro Tour back Georgia and be able to have my friends and family watch me ride,” said Lee. “Tomorrow will definitely be more of a challenge, having the top guys riding, but as long as stick my run and have fun out there, it should be a good day.”

?

The 22-year-old Georgia native finished third in his heat today, good enough to punch his ticket to tomorrow’s Round of 40.

?

“Considering I was in the same heat as Shaun Murray, a legend in the sport, and Josh Palma, who has been on a recent hot-streak, I did pretty well today,” Lee commented on his run. “The best of the best compete on the Pro Tour, so if I want to go further in this contest, I need to step up my riding and stay focused.”

?

Brett Lee and the rest of the pros competing in the Round of 40 will hit the water tomorrow, Friday, May 21, from 12 noon to 5 p.m. The Jr. Pro Men’s division will kick off the festivities tomorrow with their quarterfinals, beginning at 9:30 a.m.

?

In addition to all the action on the water; on land, fans will enjoy plenty of great food; athlete autograph signings; chances to win freebies; and shopping at the most cutting-edge stores for water-sports equipment including boats, wakeboards, wakeskates, sunglasses and the latest in wakeboarding and surfing fashions.

?

Also be sure to pick up your share of $10,000 in free gift cards from the Overton’s booth. As the official water-sports retailer of the King of Wake series, fans can also register to win a $500 Overton’s catalog shopping spree.

?

Tickets to the event can be purchased at the gate for $10 (general admission), $5 (ages 6-12) or free (ages 5 and under).

?

To catch all the high-flying, rail-sliding, water-sports action of the Acworth Pro Tour stop on television, tune in to FUEL TV on July 20 at 8 p.m. EST.
