LOS ANGELES (AP) Dew Tour Los Angeles will bring three days of skateboarding this weekend to downtown Los Angeles, where Broadway Street will be closed for one block for the streetstyle competition.

On Friday, five-time vert champion Pierre-Luc Gagnon will try to defend his 2014 title against veterans Bob Burnquist and Andy MacDonald, and younger skaters such as Tom Schaar and Alex Perelson.

Saturday's street competition will include Paul Rodriguez, Trevor Colden and Sean Malto, plus 2014 champion Louie Lopez.

In Sunday's streetstyle competition, Curren Caples looks to follow up his Dew Tour Chicago victory. He'll be challenged by two-time streetstyle champion Ryan Sheckler, as well as 2014 Dew Tour Brooklyn winner Trevor Colden.
