The legend that is Scotty Lago has another sponsor to add to his cap. PepsiCo’s AMP Energy Drink has announced the addition of the Olympic bronze medalist, Scotty Lago, to their crew.
Lago is a member of the US Snowboarding Team (you might remember he caused quite a stir at the Winter Olympics in Whistler earlier this year?), But his shredding is top-notch and he owns it in national and international competitions. He is also a featured rider in some of the top backcountry snowboard films like Flow's newest movie Witness The Sickness.
“I’m really excited about joining the AMP Energy team," said Lago. “This is going to be another busy year with a lot of travel and competitions. I want to ride as much as I can so I’m stoked to have the support from AMP and to be a part of a team with my FRENDS crew." Lago joins Kevin Pearce, Mason Aguirre, Jack and Luke Mitrani and Keir Dillon.
“We’re excited to have Scotty join the AMP Energy Drink snowboard team," said Jeff Dubiel, Vice President, Sports for Pepsi-Cola North America Beverages. “Scotty’s a genuine person and an incredible snowboarder. He’s always ready for the next adventure and knows how to make the most of every moment. That makes him not only a great spokesperson for AMP Energy, but a perfect addition to complete the team."
And to see Lago and the rest of the FRENDS crew swap snowboards for fast cars at Talladega race track, Alabama there is a rad vid on the AMP energy drink website.
