KICKER-sponsored athletes are known around the globe as daredevils, trendsetters, and at the top of their sport. KICKER snowmobiler Paul Thacker recently took it to a new level – record breaker.
The unusual lack of snow in Japan didn’t stop snowboarder Chanelle Sladics from bringing home a title. The KICKER-sponsored athlete (middle in the pic) was at the top of her game in the 5-Star Nissan X-Trail Asian Open in Alts Bandai, Japan. This earned her 850 Swatch TTR ranking points and a cool $15,000.
The KICKER family was saddened to hear of the untimely death of one of our comrades. Though Jeremy Lusk was one of the toughest guys we knew in freestyle motocross, he was also one of the best guys on and away from the circuit. We are not blind to the dangers the sport holds, and we, like you, catch our breath every time one of our own soars across the open sky. Please remember Jeremy, his wife Lauren, his parents, and all those athletes out there that put their lives on the line to make ours more enjoyable.
