Snow is beginning to fly, and that means it’s time for snowboarding season! Waterjet cutting machine manufacturer WARDJet is excited to sponsor pro-snowboarder Steven “Speedy Steve” MacCutcheon again for the 2016-2017 season. Steve’s tremendous story of talent and passion is inspiring–a major fall during competition in 2005 jeopardized his life and his dream of representing America at the Olympics. By drawing on his faith and his passion for snowboarding, Steve was able to fully recover and resumed competing internationally level in 2010. He has since celebrated many wins on the race day podium.
This season Steve was invited to join the US Snowboard Race Team among other elite American athletes. “I am excited to be one of the guys eligible for Olympic qualification in February,” Steve told us. Later this month, Steve will kick off his packed schedule with a North America Cup competition in Buck Hill, Minnesota. He has his eye on the podium: “I will be competing on December 16, 17 and 18, and I will try to win all three races to defend my title from last season.”
Steve, from the entire WARDJet waterjet family, best of luck to you at Buck Hill and on a successful season this winter!
