9 months. It took this long until Atomic all star Michael Walchhofer (36) returned to the world cup after his retirement. In Bormio, where the 19-time world cup winner won three times. He is back – not as racer, but as advisor and mentor for Austria’s young downhill racers. Atomic young guns Joachim Puchner (24), Max Franz (22), Manuel Kramer (22) and Björn Sieber (22) are excited.
