Salomon dominates Birkie

Wed, Feb  27, 2008 - By Andrew Gerlach

The 2008 American Birkebeiner continued to showcase how skiers choosing Salomon skis, boots and bindings continue to dominate American Nordic racing.

5 of the top 8 men, and 5 of the top 9 women, at this years American Birkebeiner, choose to pursue their racing dreams on the complete Salomon system. Salomon complete system skiers have now won 18 of this season's 36 USSA SuperTour races and an additional 14 national caliber loppets!

More importantly, and rather uniquely, all Salomon athletes compete on identical equipment to that sold at your local Salomon retailer.

Choose Salomon, because our race room is your race room!
