PRESS RELEASE 

Cross-country skier Andy Newell of Shaftsbury Vermont has competed in three Winter Olympic Games, representing Team USA in pursuit of that elusive gold medal.

Last week Vermont Bread Company and Newell solidified a two-year partnership that will run through the skier’s preparations for the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.  Newell, who has long been an advocate of youth physical fitness, is excited about the opportunity.

Final Preparations 

October is the time to head out west. Why? First of all because it’s a beautiful change of venue for some Autumn training, the kind of place we can escape the rainy wet roads of the East for some dry crisp mornings. Or so we thought.

2 wins in New Zealand!

The US Ski Team training camp in New Zealand packed in two hard weeks of training and also two races. The Australia New Zealand cup races are some of the first FIS races of the season making them a good reminder of what it's like to ski race again. I was super stoked to have the oportunity to use these races as warm up competitions for the winter and walk away with a win in the Sprint and the 15k classic! Thanks Snow Farm!

Norway Training camp

It has been many years since I’ve missed any US Ski Team training camps, but this July it was time for me to do something a little different.

I always look forward to our team training camps and the feeling of waking up every day for 2 weeks with the single goal of getting fitter and pushing one another. It was a shame to miss out on Alaska dry land training and Eagle glacier but if my personal goal is to become one of the best double-polers in the world, I needed to learn from the best.
