Super Jules Comes to Colorado


Spyder Sponsors Julia Mancuso’s Three-Stop Rocky Mountain Tour

Boulder, CO (November 7, 2011) — Fresh off her return from training with the U.S. Ski Team in Austria, Olympic medalist and US Ski Team superstar Julia Mancuso will be making a trio of public appearances in Colorado on November 14, 2011.

Holding more Olympic medals than any other American woman, Julia will sign autographs and answer questions regarding what’s on her horizon for the 11/12 season. Consumers will also get a chance to check out Spyder’s 44-foot athlete and events support vehicle, known to the team as the “Land Yacht.”

The Spyder-hosted events will kick off at Colorado Ski & Golf in Aurora, where Mancuso will be on hand to sign autographs from 12:30- 2:00 pm. Want more time with Julia? Head over to the newly opened S.A. Elite Sports Authority in Boulder where she’ll make her second Rocky Mountain appearance. A public signature session runs from 3:30-5:00 pm at the Twenty Ninth Street location. Both appearances will be in the respective store’s designated Spyder product area. Posters and giveaways will be available for signing, and racers are encouraged to bring in their own race suit or Spyder gear for a customized signature.

For super-charged Spyder fans, a final autograph session will be held at the Lake Eldora Race Team fundraiser at the historic Boulder Theater. She will be on hand from 6:00 to 7:00 pm, preceding LERT’s showing of the ski film, The Story at 7:30 pm.
