Kelly and Shaun On Top at Mt. Snow

NEW YORK — January 11, 2009 —Olympic gold medalist Shaun White won the men’s superpipe finals and hometown hero and fellow gold medalist Kelly Clark won the women’s event Sunday in the second stop of the inaugural Winter Dew Tour at Mount Snow Resort in West Dover, Vermont.

White’s winning run included a backside rodeo 720, a backside 900, back-to-back 1080’s into a 720. He finished with an alley-oop rodeo and scored 96.25.

“The first run was really good but I knew I could go a little bigger than I did in that first run,” White said. “It was a weird run. My glove was kind of iced over and we had to add these marks to my board so I’d make sure I grabbed it. I went through that second run there and it just all fell together.”

Steve Fisher of Breckenridge, Colo., was second at 92.75 and Kevin Pearce of Norwich, Vt., was third at 90.00.

White now holds the lead in season standings in both the superpipe and slopestyle disciplines.
In the women’s event, Clark, of West Dover, Vt., executed a frontside air to a backside 520. She continued with a frontside 720, a cab 360 and a frontside 520. She finished with a backside air and earned 90.75 points.

“I couldn’t be happier coming home to Mount Snow and doing so well in front of all my friends and family,” Clark said. “I really had a lot of fun tonight and it’s great to come away heading into the third event with a first and a second place.”

With this win, Clark secured the lead in overall point standings for superpipe.
Hannah Teter, of Belmont, Vt., was second at 88.75 and Ellery Hollingsworth, of Darien, Conn., was third at 83.00.
