SYNC Athlete Fund 2020/21 Athletes Announced

by Ryan Collopy on October 06, 2020

After the second year of committing $50,000 for the SYNC Athlete Fund, we are proud to announce the 2020/21 grant recipients for the upcoming season!

The funds awarded to these athletes will help to offset the costs associated with training and competition for the most deserving and up and coming athletes in the sport to help decrease the funding gap as they strive to achieve the highest levels of competition.

Applicants are selected by a Committee based on three main factors: speed, financial need, and quality of responses to questions and their letter of recommendation. After a thorough review, 32 athletes were identified who best met the Fund's mission and would benefit with support from the SYNC Athlete Fund.

Best race suit

This suit is amazing quality, and fits like a glove. It does not rip very easily, unlike some other brands out there. I am super excited to race in it this year.

I never received the Race short

I purchased this short with a two day shipping. After two weeks I contacted Sync because I have not received it, I was told that it was a problem with the shipping and I cannot cancel the order until I receive it. Two weeks after I wrote again informing that I was coming back home here in the US and that I need either cancel or redirect the shipping. I never received an answer, I wrote again and still no answer from Sync and the short is still missing.
We are frequent costumers as my kids are ski racers. This is very disappointing.


I LOVE THIS RACE SUIT!!! It fits really well except when you first get it on it might be a lil small but that's because you haven't stretched it out but don't worry it will adjust it self after a few rides! Because of Covid I didn't race much but I did wear a couple times but I can't wait to wear this year in races! Plus I get a lot of comments about how cute it is! It has a lot of comfortable padding and its comfortable in general! And that's why I give it a 5 stars

Stretch puffy

My third Sync Jacket and loving them all. Warm and functional. Keep up the great work.

medium fits huge, super wide not tight like it says
