Ida Sargent Joins Team Madshus
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.
