All you racer chicks out there, get ready: Spyder has partnered with Lindsey Vonn to bring you her new line of custom speed suits for the 2010/2011 season. Each suit, available online from the U.S. Ski Team store, was designed for a stop on the World Cup circuit last season. Vonn says, "I think these race suit designs are a great way to generate more excitement in our sport and especially appeal to girls and women. I want more females on race courses!” They retail for around $999.
Lindsey Vonn says an article that claimed she has a size advantage over smaller racers helped motivate her to win three consecutive races last weekend. “If all it took to be good at ski racing was weight then we all would be stuffing our faces," she said during a conference call with reporters on Monday.
