2013 saw the birth of the NUCO Academy, where 4 lucky students were hand-picked to become NUCO Riders, and have represented the company at UK events throughout the year.
Last year we invested over £10,000 into the Academy, as we believe it is extremely important to support the grass roots of the sport we all live and breathe. The motivation behind the NUCO Riders programme is to give more mountain time to UK students who show great potential and excellence within snowsports. We aim to identify individuals with genuine potential, help develop their skills, making success as achievable as possible, and reward their time and hard work involved in this process.
We would like to thank our 2013/14 & 2014/2015 teams for their hard work this year, and congratulate them for the numerous podium positions they achieved at BUISC and BUDS. going forward the Academy will always have 8 riders making up the team, 4 new members each year,
Keep an eye out for our team in their Team Academy Oakley jackets at UK events and competitions and in the Alps. Click on the faces below to read the riders profiles and find more information about each of them.
If you think you have what it takes to become part of the Academy register your interest and get on our radar for next year now!
