Breckenridge’s Bobby Brown grabs another win


Bobby Brown of Breckenridge won the freeski slopestyle final at the Winter Dew Tour’s Toyota Championship Friday at Mount Snow in Vermont, while second-place finisher Andreas Hatveit was crowned the overall Dew Cup champion for the 2009-10 season.

In the final, Brown, 18, did a flip off the rail, a variety of spins and ended his run with a double cork 1260, giving him a winning score of 91.75. Norwegian Hatveit came in second with an 89.00 and 21-year-old Sammy Carlson took the third-place position with a score of 86.75.

“If feels great to end the Dew Tour season on a strong note,” said Brown. “Now I’m just looking forward to the Winter Dew Tour next year!”

Despite Brown’s high-scoring run, it was not enough to make him the overall Dew Cup champion. That honor went to Hatveit, 23, a first-year competitor on the Winter Dew Tour, who ended his rookie season with the Tour’s highest honor.

“Winning the Dew Cup feels great, and I’m so happy right now,” said Hatveit. “I came onto the Winter Dew Tour expecting to have fun and do my best; to win the whole thing is just awesome.”

In women’s snowboard slopestyle, Jamie Anderson of South Lake Tahoe, Calif. was named the Dew Cup champion and Female Athlete of the Year after winning today’s final at Mount Snow Resort. Norway’s Torstein Horgmo won the men’s snowboard slopestyle final, while 16-year-old Sage Kostenburg – who placed second today – was named the overall Dew Cup champion, making him the youngest Dew Cup winner in Winter Dew Tour history.

Also Friday, Breck’s Eric Willett finished ninth in the snowboard slopestyle finals to end the season with a fifth-place finish overall in the Dew Cup standings.
