PARK CITY, Ut. – USA Nordic athletes around the globe are kicking off their international competition tours this month showcasing new team uniforms from American manufacturer Podiumwear.
This past weekend the uniforms were featured by U.S. athletes at the FIS Nordic Combined World Cup tour in Ramsau, Austria and FIS Ski Jumping World Cup in Engelberg, Switzerland. Earlier this month, U.S. athletes had a strong showing at the opening FIS Nordic Combined Continental Cup in Utah.
Podiumwear is providing outerwear for both ski jumping and Nordic combined athletes, as well as cross country racing suits for combined athletes. The USA Nordic competition racing suits from Podiumwear blend the performance requirements necessary to help athletes achieve success, with the design elements to make them stand out.
“USA Nordic’s designs are always eye-catching and the team is full of energetic young stars,” said Podiumwear CEO Reid Lutter. “We’ve loved supporting USA Nordic for the last three seasons as we can see the difference we can make with the team.”
A longtime cross country ski racer himself, Lutter started Podiumwear in 2003 to bring a new quality level to cross country apparel from an athlete’s perspective. Fans can now purchase their own versions of the USA Nordic uniforms including team racing suits, jackets, vests, and hats at the Podiumwear online store.
USA Nordic’s teams can be seen in action most weekends during the season on NBC’s Peacock TV while competing on the World Cup tour across Europe. The season will be highlighted with the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships this February in Germany.
