SkiTrax - - Out In Front -

In mid-july, stand­out Cana­dian Nordic ath­lete Alex Har­vey – who was al­ready us­ing Salomon boots and bind­ings – an­nounced that he will switch to Salomon skis for the 2016-2017 Nordic sea­son.

“Af­ter so many years with its boots and bind­ings, I'm happy to an­nounce that, from now on, I will be train­ing and rac­ing with Salomon skis! @salomon #sa­lomon­fam­ily,” an­nounced Har­vey on so­cial me­dia. An ac­com­pa­ny­ing photo showed Har­vey with his Salomon skis in front of Que­bec City's most iconic land­mark, the Château Fron­tenac.

Salomon's Nordic race team has worked closely with Har­vey to en­sure his com­fort and per­for­mance in Salomon's car­bon S-lab boots and Salomon bind­ings, and looks for­ward to work­ing with him on Salomon skis.

Har­vey, 28, is two-time Olympian for Canada and fin­ished third in the over­all World Cup in 2014 and sixth in 2012. Among his other ac­com­plish­ments are a sil­ver medal in the Clas­sic sprint and a bronze medal in the 30km Skiathlon at the 2015 FIS World Cham­pi­onships, a bronze medal in the Clas­sic sprint at the 2013 Nordic Worlds, Team Sprint gold with Devon Ker­shaw at the 2011 FIS World Cham­pi­onships, and he was the U23 world cham­pion in the 30km Skiathlon in 2011.

Har­vey joins Cana­dian biath­letes Rosanna Craw­ford and Bren­dan Green, also on the Salomon team. Pre­vi­ously on Fis­cher equip­ment, Har­vey's renowned father, Pierre, won the 50km CL World Cup at the Hol­menkollen ski festival in 1988, and was the first Cana­dian male to com­pete at both the Sum­mer and Win­ter Olympics as both a cross-coun­try skier and road cy­clist.

Cana­dian xc ski star Alex Har­vey is all smiles on join­ing the #sa­lomon­fam­ily.
