Bucky Lasek, at 34 the patriarch of Baltimore skateboarding, tried to ignore a bum left knee yesterday and gritted his way through the preliminary round of the skateboard vert event at the AST Dew Tour's Panasonic Open being held at the Camden Yards sports complex. Moments later, 9-year-old Joseph Hornish, aka Joey Jett, of Towson was nimbly swooping into the same giant half-pipe as one of the privileged "groms" on the tour. It was an X Games meets Circle of Life moment. Dundalk native Lasek, facing arthroscopic knee surgery Monday, is in the twilight of his celebrated career.

Ryan Nyquist's day begins routinely enough. He feeds the dogs, Shorty and Jaxon, and takes them for a brisk walk. He eats breakfast - a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats. He does the dishes, pays the bills and putters around in the yard. Then Nyquist, 28, hops on his bicycle, goes to work - and tries not to break his neck. His bike is his work. Nyquist, a stunt champion, is competing in this weekend's AST Dew Tour Panasonic Open at the Camden Yards sports complex. The event, which began Thursday and runs through tomorrow, is expected to draw 50,000 fans.
