This past weekend, the WEND crew packed up our gear and headed to the Rockies to cheer on our team at Winter X Games in Aspen. We set up shop in the waxing room of the athlete lounge to make sure the skiers’ and riders’ equipment was competition-ready.
More and more athletes and techs are using WEND products to help reach the podium and bring home some serious bling, but our team in particular crushed it with two gold medal wins. BoarderX star Lindsey Jacobellis finished first in her event, earning her 8th X Games gold medal and becoming the most decorated female in X Games history. In ski slopestyle, defending champ Nick Goepper threw bangers like a switch right dub screamin’ seamen and a triple cork 1440 mute, raking in a huge score of 95 and becoming the first skier since 1994 to earn back-to-back golds in this event.
Members of US Snowboarding and the US Ski Team also found success with WEND on their bases, with many of their athletes taking home medals too.
These big wins come right before the athletes head to Sochi to represent the US in the Winter Olympics. If the X Games is any indication of how our athletes will perform in Sochi, we’ve got high hopes. We’re stoked to see what they do with the momentum they’re carrying and we’re sure they’ll make us proud!
