Tom Kelly is one of America’s noted Olympic storytellers whose “Behind the Gold” speaking series has brought stories to audiences around the world. A Madison native, Kelly was an award-winning news photographer before moving to northwestern Wisconsin in the mid-1970s to do public relations for the then-fledgling Birkie and the prosperous Telemark Lodge. He left Telemark in 1984, beginning a career with the U.S. Ski Association in 1988, forging a 32-year career as spokesperson for America’s Olympic skiers and snowboarders. You can hear his talk, “The Legend of the Birkie” from noon to 1 pm on Thursday, April 25th at the UW Eau Claire Barron County campus, in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (Ritzinger 234).

We had fantastic feedback on these skis. In their skate line up both the FLEX and Velox had amazing performance,speed and durability for their price points. This season the Velox has been upgraded on a number of fronts to the RUSH. We are excited to see what our friends North of the border have come up with.
