Bears pave the way for the US Ski Team

Apparently, thanks to the Maplus Wax Test and reporting at EpicSki the US Ski Team were compelled to name Maplus as a team supplier. :

Thanks all for your participation and input! You are such trend setters, living on the bleeding edge(s) and fast skis!


PARK CITY, UT The U.S. Ski Team has named Italian ski and snowboard wax company Maplus as official supplier of the Team, providing wax and technical services, according to the Team's Associate Athletic Director Dale Schoon.

"The strong support of companies like Maplus is critical to the success of our athletes," said Schoon. "We're excited to welcome a company with the experience of Maplus to our U.S. Ski Team supplier team."

"We are proud to support and work together with U.S. athletes in pursuit of their Olympic dreams," said Rick Weissenborn, president of Maplus' North American distributor Innovation, Inc. "Maplus, together with the U.S. Ski Team, will strive to improve and continue the tradition of producing top results at the highest levels of competition."

Maplus is best known in Italy for superior nordic and alpine racing wax and is fast gaining recognition in the United States as a leading producer of competition wax products. Maplus started producing ski wax in 1997 with the exclusive support of the Chemical Industrial Institute of Padua University and Professor Gian Paolo Gambaretto, one of the world's authoritative experts on fluorine chemistry. The company's groundbreaking scientific research activity over the past ten years has produced a range of race proven spray, liquid, solid and powder wax with high melt points, superior durability and glide.

U.S. Ski Team athletes train year-round and compete each winter on a global World Cup circuit, in addition to the Olympic Winter Games every four years. The U.S. Ski Team will primarily use Maplus' products for its cross country, nordic combined and alpine ski teams.

Maplus joins a supplier team of over 50 companies providing valuable support to U.S. Ski Team athletes.
Note Maplus is also a supplier for the following teams. Tools4Boards also supplies the Canadian Team:

Thanks all, but it was RaceRick's doing along with Maplus. I'm just the messenger. The good news is driving me out for a trip to ponder these new developments. Maybe this'll drive Bode back to the team? : :
