 IT’S BOBBY BROWN’S PREROGATIVE TO TAKE THE 2010 ESPY FOR MALE ACTION SPORT ATHLETE OF THE YEAR 
 BRECKENRIDGE, Colo., - July 7, 2010 – At just 19 years old, Breckenridge Freeride Team’s Bobby Brown has quickly become a phenomena in the skiing world. This past ski season, Bobby broke out as a top tier action sport athlete by winning two gold medals at  the 2010 Winter X Games in both Ski Big Air and Ski Slopestyle; the only athlete to win two gold medals in 2010. That feat has earned him a nomination for ESPN’s 2010 ESPY Male Action Sports Athlete of the Year.
 
In his history-making Big Air run during the 2010 Winter X Games, Bobby dropped in first and threw two never before seen tricks, a switch double misty 1260 followed by a switch double misty 1440, earning him two back-to-back perfect scores. He also placed forth in slopestyle at the Alli Sports’ Winter Dew Tour stop in Breckenridge, and third place at the Snowbasin, UT stop.
