K1 Speed in Carlsbad, California was visited by US Womens Professional Snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler. Known for her amazing style during super-pipe competitions, her achievement’s over the years have won her multiple medals in various snowboarding events like the Winter X-Games, and the Winter Dew-Tour, along with her life time goal of becoming an Olympic Medalist. Bleiler is also an active spokesperson regarding climate change, and involved with the Womens Sports Foundation. This was Gretchen’s first visit to K1 Speed and she really enjoyed our indoor electric racing karts, and is currently enjoying some off time before getting ready for the 2010-11 season.
Everyone at K1 would like to wish Gretchen good luck in the upcoming snowboarding season, and we look forward to seeing her again.
