Bryan Fletcher, a Steamboat Springs native, gives us a low down on the start of his season. For those who don’t know, he’s won one of the most prestigious Nordic Combined events in the world, The King’s Cup in Holmenkollen, Norway, among others, and also a cancer survivor. Above all Bryan is a top notch guy and can ski a heck of a lot better than most people in the world! Plus he has a thing for our Mint Protein bars! —
Last week the U.S. Nordic Combined Team kicked off their season with competitions in Norway and Finland. While in Finland the team had a very unusual predicament one morning before the competition. As you can see from the picture below ski jumping with Rudolf in the landing hill can be hazardous!
So after pondering why Rudolf was delaying the forthcoming competition, it dawned on us that there was only one answer! He needed some Stinger product before his big flight that’s just weeks away. Clearly he knew that the US NoCo team does not travel anywhere without it. Without delay we set up a meeting to take care of Rudolf’s needs.
After filling his stocking with 10 gram Protein Bars, waffles, Gels, and Chews, Rudolf was on his merry way to finish his training before the big event in December.
As for the US NoCo Team we wrapped up the weekend after a couple close fights for the podium excited and focused on our next World Cup competitions in Ramsau, Austria on December, 15th and 16th. Those of you who are looking to come watch a competition in the USA should consider heading over the Park City, UT to check out the Continental Cup Competitions. Local boys from Steamboat Springs, CO and the rest of the country will be battling teams from around the world trying to make a name for them selves and move up onto the World Cup Circuit. The events are a guaranteed good time with some long jumps, and fast racing!
