Kingwill and Dunn Do-Over
In super G, Christopher Klug took revenge on the terrain where he screwed up his knee last year, and Rosey Fletcher won it for the women. Pipe veterans Rob Kingwill and Shannon Dunn won Grand Prix #1 in Mammoth and they weren't about to step off the podium here in Breckenridge.
Kingwill Pulls a Tear-Jerking 900
From Mammoth Mountain, CA., Olympian Shannon Dunn won the women's halfpipe, while Sondra Van Ert and Ian Price were the speediest in the super G. Rob Kingwill pulled a tear-jerking 900 for his halfpipe win. "I was just going for it," he said. "I was either gonna crash or win this thing
I had nothing to lose."
