Family wins with GOODE Skis

Congratulations to the Bradstreet Family, from Australia, who sent the following email and photos to Dave Goode.

Hi there,

I just wanted to let you know about some fantastic results achieved by my family riding GOODE skis.

My 17 year old daughter, Alyce and her 16 year old brother Tim are 3 event skiers and my husband James is a single event skier. Recently, at our NSW state titles, Alyce, skiing in U/17 girls, won all of her events and slalomed into the 12m line on both rounds. Tim opted to ski in the Open Men’s division and won all three disciplines. The slalom was nail-biting stuff with the scores being tied for first place (2 @ 11m), a run-off was held. Tim backed up his previous rounds with a 2 1/2 @ 11m to win gold. James placed second in the O/45 men’s slalom.

The Nationals were held the following week and Alyce & Tim skied U/17 division. They both won all events and are both U/17 National champions. Tim equaled the Australian U/17 slalom and jump records and broke the U/17 and U/21 overall records. James again placed 2nd in the O/45 men’s division.

Alyce rides a GOODE 9800 SL Maika’i, Tim rides the GOODE 9600 (185amp), and James the GOODe 9600 (175amp).

I have attached some photos from the competition.

Kind regards,
