SRD Names Junior Race Team for 2009-2010

Introducing the Ski Racing Development Junior Race Team, for 2009-2010! We welcome new racers Ali Gunesch, Kendall Van Hee, Serina Kidd, Nicolas Veth, Alex Leever, Kazui Kusumi and Sam Morse. They join Jessie Delacenserie, Mikeala Shiffrin, Katelyn Barclay, Katharine Irwin, Taylor Shiffrin, Kieffer Christianson, Andrew Hancock, Stephen Splitstoser and Kyle Burcin. All hope to follow in the footsteps of former SRD racers Ben Morse and Rose Caston in joining the US Ski Team.

With the creation of the SRD Development Team we hope to help support, develop and supply these young racers with the very best in speed equipment featuring the SRD World Cup race suits and ski poles. Our goal is to develop our grass-roots support program starting with these highly motivated young athletes as they progress towards the US Ski team. Truly, we are living up to our name by proudly supporting Ski Racing Development! SRD is also pleased to announce a partnership with World Cup Supply and Halti USA in presenting the Fast Skier Junior Alpine Scholarship Fund.

These exceptional athletes have scored wins from the International Topolino Games in Italy and Canada's Whistler Cup to numerous Junior Olympic titles and regional USSA/FIS races.This past season the SRD Ski Team defeated the Spyder Speedfreaks team in a season long competition! A $500 donation was recently made by Spyder in the SRD Team's name to the World Cup Dreams Foundation, a charity for supporting USA ski team racers in need. To all our SRD Team skiers ..... Go fast and good luck this season!
