Podiumwear Sponsored Athlete Timmy Kelley of Redneck Racing to Ski World Championship Slalom at Vail/Beaver Creek

Exclusive Camouflage and Farmer John Redneck Racing Alpine Suits Available For Sale as Fundraiser.

February 4, 2015

St. Paul, Minn - Tim Kelley, one of four members of the Redneck Racing Team based out of Vermont, has been named to the 2015 World Championship team representing the U.S. He will be skiing the men’s slalom slated for the last day of racing on Sunday, February 15 at Vail/Beaver Creek.

Podiumwear has partnered with Redneck Racing as the official race suit supplier for the team and its members Tim and Robby Kelley, Tucker Marshall and Andrew McNealus. The Kelley brothers, who are members of the famed skiing Cochrans family, worked with Podiumwear to come up with race suit designs that reflect their unique backwoods fashion.

The most popular suits have been the “Camouflage” suit which is a combination of blaze orange and brown camo as well as what has been dubbed the “Farmer John” suit, which looks like a red plaid shirt with dark blue denim overalls. Both suits have become crowd favorites and have succeeded in bringing attention to the Redneck Team and their mission to make the World Cup circuit in their own humble, low-key way. “I love my Podiumwear suit,” said Tim Kelley when asked. “It’s by far the most comfortable suit I have ever worn. The range of motion I have in it compared to other suits is unreal. There are never any restricted movements, which is very important for a slalom skier.” When asked about the attention he’s received as a result of the suits, he said: “Every day that I wear the suit I get complimented on the designs. They are truly one of a kind!”

In order to help the Redneck Racing Team in their endeavors, Podiumwear is making the Camouflage and Farmer John racing suits available for purchase to anyone. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these suits will go back to Tim, Robby, Andrew and Tucker to support their team expenses. The suits can be ordered by visiting the Podiumwear web site at www.podiumwear.com or through this direct link to the Redneck Racing Team Storefront: https://www.podiumwear.com/benefit-storefronts/
