What a memorable weekend for the Redster Nordic Unit! With five Top 3 places in three different disciplines the Atomic cracks proved their remarkable early season form at the beginning of the World Championship winter. The man of the day: Janosch Brugger. The 21 year old German was “Winner of the Day” in the classic pursuit in Lillehammer.
Mikaela Shiffrin can tick off her next career dream. Thanks to her win in the Super-G in Lake Louise she is now the 7th female athlete in history to have won in all five disciplines. The Redster cracks also showed their claws on the Birds of Prey slope in Beaver Creek: three second places by Mauro Caviezel (downhill and Super-G) as well as Marcel Hirscher (GS) just whet your appetite for the next races over in Europe.
The Redster Nordic Unit didn’t have to be asked twice at the World Cup opening in Ruka, Finland. The newly assembled team for the Nordic combined kicked off with an especially impressive start to the season.
Only four races into the winter season in the Ladies World Cup and the Redster rocket Mikaela Shiffrin is already 114 points ahead of the rest of the world. In the third edition of her home race in Killington (USA) the 23 year old kept a clean slate in the slalom in thick fog and won for the third time in a row in Vermont. In the Men’s speed opening in Lake Louise Mauro Caviezel surprised everyone coming in third place.
Now it’s nearly official for the competitors: you wouldn’t notice that the current Alpine stars have had a break from the racing action. Marcel Hirscher and Mikaela Shiffrin are preparing to dictate the World Championship winter 2018/19 from the top again. In Levi, Finland, the Redster rockets carved their way to their respective 3rd slalom win in a row and 3rd win in the Arctic Circle since 2013 and 2016.
With winter on its way, Atomic is pleased to announce it has received the coveted Gear of the Year Award from OUTSIDE, North America’s preeminent active and adventure lifestyle magazine.
The World Championship winter started as the Olympic season ended with a race being cancelled and a Redster athlete up on the podium. Mikaela Shiffrin started her attack on her third big crystal globe by coming in third place at the opening race of the season, the giant slalom in Sölden. The men’s race was cancelled due to heavy snow and wind.
Atomic and FIS program Bring Children to the Snow have entered into a partnership to bring the next generation to snow sports.
In preparation for the 2018 / 2019 season with the prestigious Nordic World Championships in Seefeld the Russian cross-country skier Evgeniy Belov will also be counting on the race support of the Atomic Redster Nordic Unit, following the world-class biathlete Simon Eder who signed up recently. After the performance test results with the new Redster material convinced him Belov also signed a two-year contract.
