Ben Thomsen & Conrad Pridy Shop at Monod's
Canadian National Ski Team members Conrad Pridy (L) and Ben Thomsen (R) visiting Monod Sports
March 26, 2012
We were working away in the shop and who should stroll in but National Ski members Ben Thomsen & Conrad Pridy! When asked what they were doing in Banff, they explained that they were on their way back home to BC from the Calgary International Airport after being away for most of the winter and travelling the ski racing circuit . When asked why they were stopping of at Monod Sports, they replied "are you kidding? We come in here every chance we get and any time we pass through Banff, this is the number one ski shop in Canada" . Gee,... thanks guys!
Conrad is the newest member of the Canadian Ski Team and also one of the hardest workers. He's had had a super busy season. Racing everywhere and anywhere he could and was skiing well enough this season to be invited to a few World Cup races . His hard work and results on the Nor Am circuit this year earned him a full time spot on the World Cup circuit for next year.
Of course Ben Thomsen is fresh off his best season ever on the World Cup circuit with a 2nd place finish in Russia and a bunch of top ten finishes. Ben has now solidified himself among the best in the world.
Way to go guys, keep up the good work!
