Dreyer tops IMD Masters at Aspen nationals

International racing

Ketchumís Bob Dreyer won the combined title in Menís Class 7 (ages 55-59) during the 2004 Skierís Edge U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Alpine Masters National Championships March 24-27 in Colorado.

Dreyer won gold medals in giant slalom and super giant slalom plus a silver medal in slalom to emerge as the leading Intermountain Division racer out of 47 IMD entrants in the four-day national finals at Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk Mountain.

He started off with a .56-second giant slalom victory over Pepe Neubauer March 24, then outsprinted runner-up Neubauer by 1.05 seconds in the March 25 super giant slalom and placed second to Neubauer in the slalom finale staged March 27.

Dreyerís three golds for the week werenít the only medal-winning efforts for Sun Valley Masters racers and Sun Valley Ski Club competitors at Aspen.

Virginia Reed swept three golds in Womenís Class 10 (70-74), winning SG, SL and combined. Cliff Cunha captured the slalom gold in Menís Class 6 (50-54). Rosemary Moschel also grabbed the slalom gold in Womenís Class 7 (55-59).

In the always-tight Womenís Class 8 (60-64), Glenn McConkey and Nancy Auseklis went 1-2 in combinedówith McConkey winning SG and Auseklis on top in SL. Slalom silver medalist Anna Droege would have challenged in combined, too, if not for a DQ in super giant slalom.

Carl Fullman won the SG and GS races in Menís Class 9 (65-69). Only a DNF in slalom prevented him from claiming another combined gold. And Craig Norton captured the SG gold medal in Menís Class 1 (21-29).

Downhill was canceled, but 264 competitors enjoyed a good week of racing at Aspen. Winning the Divisionsí Cup was Far West ahead of Pacific Northwest, with Intermountain settling for third place of nine teams.
