FIRST SLALOM VICTORY FOR MICHAELA KIRCHGASSER

Winning feels so great! ATOMIC lady Michaela Kirchgasser won her first World Cup slalom in Kranjska Gora only a few days after she returned from a break caused by a knee injury. The athlete from Salzburg knew well how to replace Marlies Schild, who dropped out in the first heat. Kathrin Zettel impressively improved from place 17 to place 5.

I AM PACKING MY SKI BACKPACK AND TAKE ALONG ...

Before the race is after the race. When Marcel Hirscher is still inspecting the World Cup slope before the first run of a race, his bags are already ready for departure. Professional skiing requires a lot of material. Perfect logistics and well-planned packing concern any professional racer. We are packing bags and car trunks with Marcel Hirscher, Philipp Schörghofer, Joachim Puchner, Mario Scheiber and their Atomic ski-tech crew.

MARCEL HIRSCHER DOUBLE VICTORY

The winner takes it all. After the double victory of Marcel Hirscher and Benjamin Raich on the Atomic D2 Race in the giant slalom classic, Marcel Hirscher also achieved the slalom victory in Adelboden using Atomic Race 165 SL. Thus he is the first double winner ever in the well-established Swiss world cup location. Under conditions that the current world cup leader Marcel Hirscher called “almost unraceable“.
