SkiTrax - - Out In Front -

US Nordic Ski Team mem­ber Ida Sar­gent has signed an ex­clu­sive deal with Mad­shus skis and boots. The deal is ef­fec­tive Oct. 1, 2015 and will see Sar­gent race on Mad­shus equip­ment for the up­com­ing World Cup sea­son. “I tested Mad­shus skis and boots for the first time this sum­mer and was im­me­di­ately blown away! The skis were fast and very re­spon­sive un­der­foot, and the con­trol of the Su­per Nano boot is im­pres­sive! I am very ex­cited to join the Mad­shus team and am look­ing for­ward to an awe­some win­ter,” stated Sar­gent.

Since join­ing the US Ski Team in 2011, Sar­gent, a sprinter, has amassed more than 75 World Cup starts, posted nu­mer­ous top10 fin­ishes and achieved a ca­reer-best fifth­place fin­ish in the Clas­sic sprint event in Ruka, Fin­land in 2014.

Chris Mc­cul­lough, Mad­shus USA brand di­rec­tor, praised Sar­gent's “im­pres­sive list of re­sults,” as well as “her per­son­al­ity and work ethic.”

Hail­ing from Or­leans, Vt. and a grad­u­ate of Dart­mouth Col­lege, Sar­gent joins Mad­shus' elite ros­ter of World Cup ath­letes, in­clud­ing fel­low US Ski Team mem­bers Noah Hoff­man, Caitlin Gregg and Bryan Fletcher.
