Carrabassett Valley, ME (NEWS CENTER)-- Seth Wescott is about to leave Sugarloaf for Quebec and the World Cup World Championships.

Wescott, who has won both Olympic Gold Medals in the sport of Bordercross, picked up his first World Cup victory in four years at Telluride in December. He won in a photo finish, just as he lost there in 2011.

"The biggest thing is that I'm healthy," said Wescott who is enjoying a month off from the World Cup tour at his home mountain, Sugarloaf in Western Maine. Wescott received a serious injury to his pectoral muscles during a World Cup competition in 2011. An operation and a year of rehab were necessary before he could get back on the podium.   

The win at Telluride signals that he's back among the World Cup elite.  Along with having won the two Olympic golds, Wescott is a former World Champion and X-Games gold medalist.

He and fellow Mainer Alex Tuttle will be competing this weekend at the World Championships.
