Newry, Maine - The two previous winners of the Dumont Cup were amateurs but the professionals are taking it back. Telluride, Colorado native Gus Kenworthy, beat out 51 participants this afternoon to win professional freeskier and eight-time X Games medalist Simon Dumont's fourth annual Dumont Cup held at Sunday River Ski Resort.

To win the event, Kenworthy executed a K-Fed on the down flat down, a blind 3 swap to blind 2 on the pole jam to pyramid rail, a right 9 tail, and switch left dub 9 Japan to left dub 12 mute during the slopestyle finals held on Sunday River's Rocking Chair Terrain Park.

Kenworthy, who earned 96.0 points, was joined on the podium by Indiana native Nick Goepper, last year's winner who took second place this year with 94.0 points, and Joss Christensen of Park City, Utah, who took third place with 90.7 points.

Kenworthy walks away with $12,000 in cash, second place wins $5,250, and third place, $3,500.

The Dumont Cup has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the World's most prestigious slopestyle contests. It will be featured in the nationally televised Red Bull Signature Series on the NBC Sports Network on April 10, 2012, from 12:30-1:30AM EST (9:30-10:30PM PST) as well as internationally through Dumont Cup event partner, Red Bull.
