Wednesday, 21 October 2009 12:13Ladies and Gentleman... Watch out! Sam Stinnett has broken through professionaly in more ways than one this past weekend at the Oktoberfest, 2009 UST ending event. With his first win as a professional at the final stop, which boiled down to being one of the most competitive playing fields of the year, he proved to all that he's here, he has what it takes to win a final, and he won't let anyone stop him. With this win he was almost able to steal the UST as well.
The points race was on this weekend, and everyone knew it. Brad Domke put himself in striking distance at Santa Cruz, and the field came after him. He was outed in the second round, and the whispers among the crowds became shouting inside the top 5's heads' that remained in the hunt for the UST title. The heats became closer and closer but in the end Sam Stinnett took the contest title and snuck himself into second place for the UST points. Brandon Sears came through with another podium finish right behind Sam, making 2009 his most consistant year on tour.
Keep your eyes peeled for the officioal UST video from Oktoberfest, and in the mean time here is a shot of your 2009 Oktoberfest winner and UST runner-up Sam Stinnett.
The crowd enjoying history.
