According to an article published in the Steamboat Today, a pack of six Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club racers will be China bound soon, off to compete in the Junior Snowboarding World Championships in Yabuli, China, early next month.

#The contingent is comprised wholly of Alpine snowboard racers, coached by Thedo Remmelink and Dave Winters, and they’re headed for a resort in northeastern China, about 200 miles north of North Korea.

#“It’s a big thing for them,” Remmelink said. “They’re training really hard. We’ve been here in Steamboat working and we’re just been focused on technique and building speed, so it’s been fun.”

#The group will consist of four United States athletes — Maggie Carrigan, Nina Argento, Myles Silverman and Billy Winters. The team also will include Christian De Oliveria, an Australian racer, and Riley Kilmer-Choi, of Canada.

#“It’s awesome,” Winter Sports Club snowboard director Tori Koski said. “It just proves how our snowboard Alpine program with Thedo coaching produces these athletes.”

#The event kicks off March 6 and runs through March 12.

#We wish our kids the best of luck!
