Maine's Top Snowboarder

Farmington snowboarder Seth Wescott is featured in the Who's Next 2006 issue of Newsweek as poster-boy for the new "hipper and sexier" Winter Olympics.
In recent years crowd-pleasing, daredevil competitions such as freestyle skiing, halfpipe and short-track speed skating have been added to the Olympic mix. And in February in Turin, snowboard cross will make its debut on sports' most celebrated global stage. SBX, as it's known, melds the hellbent charge of downhill skiing with snowboarding's panache; and since competitors race for the finish line simultaneously, the potential for collisions looms. [Link]
Here are two more articles on Wescott, his bio from the U.S. Olympic Team website, and his official website.
