Welcome to another installment of the Team Fuxi Ski Fast Spotlight!
The idea for this feature came to me in November when my path crossed with a few of you at Copper Mountain. As I become more involved in ski racing, I find myself continually impressed by the passionate, strong, kind, helpful, and inspiring individuals that compose this outstanding sports community. Earlier this season, we sent out an email casting call to our subscribers. We love our athletes and felt each one of our amazing racers deserved his/her own moment in the spotlight. We hope you enjoy getting to know your fellow racers.
