Season Wrap-up - What a long exciting ride it was...

To our Sponsors,

As our season winds down and I have a moment to reflect on how our team performed, I can’t thank you enough for investing your time and products into our team.

We hope our weekly race reports kept you well informed as to how the team was doing throughout the season. Not only did we have a significant and professional presence at our regional races, we also provided five skate clinics throughout the season to bring new blood into the Nordic world. Your products were discussed at length at races, our skate/wax clinics, and anytime we were out skiing. If there is something you believe we have not sufficiently provided you as sponsored athletes please let me know so we can make the necessary adjustments in the future.

Our skis were fast thanks to our UltraTune grinds, Toko wax, Finite structure, and handpicked flexes by Robert Lazzaroni, the head of the nordic division at Rossignol USA. Our boots and poles not only performed strong, but never faltered throughout the season. Our hands and heads were spoiled by the warmth and comfort of our Toko gloves and hats, and we stayed looking clean and sharp in our Podiumwear kits. Our Rudy Project eyewear was unmatched in function and style not only on the snow. Before the snow even flew we were getting comfortable with our eyewear riding, rollerskiing, hiking and running in preparation for the upcoming season. Our skiers, too, have been fortunate to have the finest coffee in the region, thanks to Sierra Pacific Coffee Co., to have as a part of their pre-race/ski ritual. Having such a generous regional sponsor has given our team a true local representation which reflects our hometown support. Paco's Bike and Ski has also been a fantastic support throughout the season by making sure we received our equipment early in the season so we could begin the proper preparation of our skis and to assist us if we had any technical needs regarding our equipment.

We have become a resource to racers looking for the extra edge we seem to have on race day with how fast our skis are running. Our photogenic kits not only stood the test of competition, but also stood out in the field as well as against a snowy backdrop. Newcomers to the sport of Nordic skiing keep coming back (and bringing their friends) for more of our technical savvy and sheer, genuine, love and enthusiasm for the sport with our offered skate/wax clinics.

Thank you for another fantastic season.
