The largest and most storied professional wakeboarding circuit in the world is gearing up for its 21st season, as the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour, presented by Rockstar Energy Drink, unveiled today its 2012 schedule. The 2012 Pro Wakeboard Tour will visit five cities throughout the United States, including a brand new venue in the Midwest.
The 2012 season will kick off May 18 at Dallas Landing Park in Acworth, Ga., and wrap up on July 28 at Volunteer Landing in Knoxville, Tenn. Between Acworth and Knoxville, the Pro Wakeboard Tour will make stops in Fort Worth, Tex., Monroe, Wash., and its newest venue in Branson, Mo.
The MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour, presented by Rockstar Energy Drink, is a five-stop series points race for the Pro Tour title. Athletes accumulate points at every stop, based on placement in each contest. The highest total points-earner at the end of the five-event season will be crowned the Pro Tour champion.
Last year, Phillip Soven topped the 2011 standings, earning his fourth Pro Tour title in five years. Soven won the season-long points race after edging out teenage Australian phenom Harley Clifford 480 points to 445. As the defending titlist, Soven will enter the 2012 season as the top-ranked rider on the Pro Tour.
