Elijah Teter, Jamie MacLeod and Zach Diamond Signed to Pro Team
Norwood, Massachusetts (September 27, 2003) – Leedom Helmets is proud to announce that Elijah Teter, Jamie MacLeod, and Zach Diamond have joined the Leedom Team. These athletes will be representing Leedom Helmets exclusively for the 2003/2004 season.
Elijah will be focused on slopestyle and halfpipe contests this year as well as trying to bang out a video part. He has just been named to the US Snowboard Team and will be making a push for the Olympics in 2006. He is coming off a sick year where he took 1st at the Junior World Championships and 1st, 2nd and a 3rd in three Grand Prix events. Jamie is a threat to take any slopestyle she enters and is pushing progressive riding for women. She plans on spending a majority of her winter in the Hollywood Canyons of Utah, so keep an eye out for some backcountry footage. Zach Diamond just got a pro model on joyride and a new sled- two key possessions that will allow him to continue killing some of the heaviest rails and kickers in California. Check his segment in the new Technine video and his new company the INFINTRY, which will be hitting around Christmas time.
“We are very excited about the athletes involved with our products this year,” said Matthew Hershey, Leedom Helmet’s Team Manager. “This is a pivotal year with our new products, and this demonstrates Leedom’s commitment to working with progressive and focused riders and making the best products we can with their demands in mind. One thing we haven’t told them about yet is our team outing, which consists of a couple 12- hour days packing boxes in our warehouse with a 1/2 hour lunch break. But we’re pretty sure they will be pumped on that shit.”
Leedom Helmets, based out of Norwood, MA, has been creating its own innovative helmets since 1997. Check out the rest of Leedom’s Team and the latest products at www.leedomhelmets.com.
