SEATTLE, Wash. (July 17, 2013) – Madshus, the world’s leading performance Nordic ski company, announces the growth of its athlete team with the addition of 2014 US Olympic hopefuls Caitlin and Brian Gregg. The Greggs, each highly accomplished and influential ski racers, anticipate an exciting future with the Madshus team.
Caitlin Gregg, a 2010 Olympian, three-time World Championship competitor, American Birkebeiner winner, and three-time National Champion, looks forward to returning to her Madshus roots.
“I won my first Junior Nationals on Madshus skis and am really excited to partner with Madshus in this Olympic year,“ said Caitlin. “I tried some demo skis this spring and I was so happy with the new Redline skis that I decided to race on them in the Ski to Sea. I had a fantastic race and beat some of the top guys.”
Brian Gregg’s prolific career highlights include a 2012 American Birkebeiner podium finish as well as 2010 and 2011 Super Tour Distance Champion titles.
“I did a lot of testing this spring and am very impressed with the quality of each pair of Madshus skis I tried – their quality control is fantastic,” said Brian. “It’s a big move to build a new fleet of skis in an Olympic year, but the quality of the [Madshus] Redline skis makes that easy.”
Madshus’ high-level team additions signify the brand’s commitment to growth in the North American market.
“Having Caitlin and Brian skiing with the Madshus USA team is a dream come true. I can’t think of better athletes to represent our Redline skis and Super Nano boots, particularly in an Olympic year. Congratulations and welcome to the team,” said Madshus‘ Director of Sales, Van Brinkerhoff.
The Greggs join Madshus’ elite roster of athletes, including two-time world champion and Olympic medalist Axel Teichmann, Biathlon World Cup legend Ole Einar Bjorndalen, and World Cup skier and Olympic gold medalist Emil Hegle Svendsen.
