SUCCESSFUL WORLD CUP FINAL IN ITALY

The ISMF ski mountaineering World Cup final 2021 took place in the Italian village of Madonna di Campiglio last weekend. After a season full of vast and successful coronavirus measures it was possible for the Backland athletes to prove themselves once more and to end the season successfully in all disciplines. Above all Davide Magnini, who placed 2nd in the vertical and the individual race, managed to put together the last building block for a 3rd place in the Overall World Cup, as well as a 2nd place in the Individual World Cup and a 3rd place in the Vertical World Cup.

18 WINS, 8 MEDALS, 2 GLOBES! THANK YOU, REDSTER TEAM – YOU’RE AWESOME!

All's well that ends well. On the very last race day the Atomic team finished out the season in the same mood that has been predominant throughout most of the winter: thrilled to the gills! About? Manuel Feller's second Slalom World Cup victory. And Marco Schwarz’ first globe, for instance. And even the fact that Mikaela Shiffrin's 70th World Cup victory has been postponed to next season did not dampen the spirits in any way – she finished 2nd just a week after her 26th birthday. In an extraordinary 2020-2021 season, the Redster athletes took home a total of 18 World Cup victories plus eight World Champs medals. They scored 45 podiums in 66 races, and achieved 65 top 5 and 111 top 10 results. Time to recap a season one could call successful simply because it took place at all ...

GRAND FINALE: SIMEN WINS, HUGO IS THE WORLD'S BEST U23 ATHLETE

It was a grand finale to an outstanding season in an extraordinary winter: in the Atomic Nordic unit’s final race of the season Redster superstar Simen Hegstad Krueger was the first to cross the finish line taking the win home! After claiming three medals at the Nordic World Ski Championships and even though he had started the season late, the Atomic athlete ended up in 3rd place in the distance ranking. This is the era of the new Redster S9 Gen S that has exceeded all expectations ever since it was launched. Used in secret already last year, Atomic’s latest race ski as well as the team’s mindset and spirit have given everybody wings: Following his U23 World Champs title Frenchman Hugo Lapalus also won the World Cup ranking in his age category, completing the season as the world’s best U23 athlete. And the top women on Atomic have also made a big step towards the world elite this winter ...

“BLACKY“ WINS HIS SLALOM GLOBE – THRILLING FINALS FOR SOFIA, MIKAELA

Cool as ice on the race course, a gentleman off skis – modest, friendly, smart. In the winter following his comeback (torn ACL), Marco Schwarz cracked the jackpot and gave the skiing world an idea of what to expect of him in the future: he’s the World champion in the Combination, has won bronze in the World Champs’ GS; and now, after an outstanding season and despite severe back problems, he skied solidly in Kranjska Gora, locking in the Slalom crystal globe. An impressive feat, however: he is not performing at his peak yet. While "Blacky" can head to the Finals in Lenzerheide all relaxed, teammates Mikaela Shiffrin and Sofia Goggia are still involved in a thrilling race for crystal globes – hopefully with a happy ending …

MIKAELA SHIFFRIN: SLALOM GLOBE WITHIN REACH ON HOME STRETCH

She has been and will remain ski racing’s brightest figure: Mikaela Shiffrin’s win in Jasna marked her 45th career slalom victory. Since 2012, the superstar on the Atomic team has been the measure of all things in her favorite discipline and a role model for a whole generation of athletes. Her competitors have caught up, no doubt about it. Yet Mikaela apparently still has that unique speed that lets her win a race like in Jasna as she likes – and within just a few gates. Coming back this winter after the hardest time of her life she gradually reconnected with the best version of herself. With three more Slaloms to come and 45 points to catch up Mikaela is sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats: will she grab the slalom globe on this season’s home stretch?
