The Winter Dew Tour doubles back to Breckenridge to kick off its second season in December with the Totino's Open, and we just got hold of a roster of the first round of pre-qualified athletes confirmed for the competition:
Last year snowboarder Danny Davis won the Superpipe Finals at the Breck event; he'll be back, alongside Breck local Steve Fisher (last year's 2nd place overall Winter Dew Tour finisher, behind Shaun White), Mason Aguirre, Ross Baker, Mikkel Bang, Chas Guldemond, Torstein Horgmo, Kevin Pearce, Andreas Wiig, and Louie Vito, fresh off his stint performing with Chelsie Hightower on Dancing With The Stars.
No word yet on Shaun White and a few other big names who may be more focused on the Olympics at this point; White won the Dew Cup championships in both Superpipe and Slopestyle on the Winter Dew Tour's inaugural season last year, and he'll be a favorite for any event he shows up for.
