THE TRAVIS REFLEX AFTER THE KNEE CASE: COME BACK STRONGER!

Bormio has always been good to him. Travis collected his first World Cup points there in 2010, then in 2012 he came in the Top 10, and in nearby Santa Caterina his première win in 2014. The 30 year old however could have done without the première at the end of 2017. In his 115th World Cup the Atomic speedster crashed for the first time and was floundering in the B-nets with a ruptured cruciate ligament. Motivation and fighting spirit soon returned. Perhaps because Travis was able to go through rehab together with his girlfriend Marie-Michèle Gagnon, who suffered exactly the same injury 29 days earlier. Together they defined their next common aims together. Come back stronger! And: Peking 2022! For the time after that the downhill vice world-champion from 2015 has already set up a playground for himself. In Truckee, his Californian home town, shortly after his comeback on snow, he opened the “Pacific Crest Coffee Company”, his own coffee house with its own roasting facilities.
