Hitting the BIG time – a Podcast!

A number of years ago a Brain Halligan started a project with his company Kick Zone Media

WORD on the TRAIL Podcasts

Brian has done loads of interviews with lots of great people in the Nordic Community. Many Team Out There Athletes have been on the Podcast. A couple of weeks ago he reached out and said “I want to hear the Out There Story”

 

Inspired by the love of the outdoors, hear how Bjorn Hanson’s little ski shop in Wisconsin has created a world wide family of athletes.

Madshus- Even Better

Madshus- Changing the game again!

US Ski Team Athlete Hailey Swirbul sums it up in a recent message from her

“I’ve got my new fleet! I have been testing on the glacier and am absolutely loving them”

 

 

The Red Line 2.0s will have totally redesigned geometry and side cuts – especially the skating version 2.0 where geometry changes the company describes as “revolutionary”.

RL 2.0 will have totally new base material. No, there still will be old good Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWP) more commonly ( if wrongly) called P-Tex. The properties of the new base, however, will be very different to what we all are used to, Madshus says .

Perhaps, more significantly, for the first time in many years ( and please correct us if we are wrong here) any ski manufacturer would use for its top model UHMWP not supplied by storied Austrian Isosport!

Per Wiik, Madshus marketing & racing department boss says “We looking into very limited quantity introduction for loyal dealers with racing focus for late fall 2018” Translation: if you are one of those people who absolutely must have the latest & best, start schmoozing your local dealer already now!

The rest of the folk would see the RedLine 2.0 in the fall of 2019.

This year along with her went Coach Michael Young from the Great Lakes along with 4 Wisconsin athletes and one Michigan athlete.  The trip helped grow these young athletes ability to travel, meet and train with athletes from other parts of the US and around the world.
