Greg Bretz Wins Snowboard Superpipe Finals, Shaun White Takes Second At The Dew Tour ION Mountain Championships

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo., Dec. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a thrilling finish at the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships first final of the day Greg Bretz won the men's Snowboard Superpipe Finals, and 1,000 points towards his USSA standings. The iON Mountain Championships serves as the first official U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) Olympic team selection event of the 2013-2014 season.  Excitement levels were high and the suspense carried on through the very end of the competition with Shaun White's final run, which placed him in second. Bretz claimed the coveted Dew Cup with a score 91.40, and a run that featured a frontside double 1080, cab double 1080, frontside 900, backside 900, frontside 1080 and cab 1080. Shaun White took second with a score of 90.40; Taylor Gold finished third with 89.60. 

"I'm excited to be at the Dew Tour and for my first big win," said Greg Bretz after the competition. "I'm so stoked it's an Olympic selection event, and I was able to come out on top. I just try to ride for myself and stay away from what other people are doing. It ended up working out, and I am super stoked about it."
