The French team dominates the starting area at the Sugar Bowl skiercross race on February 2.
The French skiercross team made a scene at Sugar Bowl on February 2 even before entering the starting gates for the FIS Nor-AM Cup race. Dressed in head-to-toe pink, with France written in silver rhinestones on their backs, they had the public shaking their heads in awe. Their coach tells us why the French look like they’ve been attacked with a can of pink spray paint and a BeDazzler.
Coach Romuald Licinio says that the uniforms were the result of a partnership with former racing buddy who works for Tricolor. “‘I’m going to make something different,’ he said,” Licinio recalls. “We said ‘Okay, do what you want.’ He said, ‘They’re going to be pink.’ We said, ‘Okay—why not?’”
