SPEED QUEEN SOFIA: QUATTRO STAZIONE WINNING STREAK, 1-2-3 CLEAN SWEEP

Val d´Isère, St. Anton, Crans Montana, Crans Montana: Redster speed queen Sofia Goggia currently skis in a league of her own – four Downhill races, four straight wins. A dominance that inspires the entire Redster team: in Crans Montana, Sofia led the first triple success for Atomic in a long time, ahead of Ester Ledecka and Breezy Johnson. "Our ladies’ performances make us feel a lot better, now that we’re quite challenged with all those injuries on the men's speed team lately,” says Atomic Race Manager Christian Höflehner.

SIMEN STRONG IN SKIATHLON ON NEW REDSTER MODEL – 4TH DESPITE CRASH

One might read the official results list of the 30k skiathlon in Lahti like this: “Barely missed the podium!” What is not noted, though: Atomic superstar Simen Hegstad Krueger had practically grabbed a podium spot – up to that infamous “Lahti Curve” shortly before the finish, where the double Olympic champion unfortunately crashed. Taking 4th place, despite this mishap, is quite an accomplishment; especially since it was the first race in a long time in which the entire world elite including Norway was finally back at the start. Besides, for the first time Simen officially raced on the new Atomic performance model Redster S9 Gen-S, which he had only used in secret so far ...

In this somewhat improvised pandemic winter everyone is focused on the World Champs: the season’s highlights will kick off in Pokljuka on February 10 (biathletes) and in Oberstdorf on February 23 (Nordic athletes). It’s great news that the Redster team is increasingly stepping up its game: Fabian Riessle and Lukas Greiderer were again among the top performers at the Nordic Combined World Cup in Val di Fiemme. The Atomic biathlete duo Benjamin Weger and Simon Eder impressed with strong performances in Oberhof, while Atomic’s Norwegians demonstrated on home turf that they are ready for medals.

EVGENIJ: 6TH PLACE AT THE TOUR DE SKI – HUGO IS U23 WORLD CUP LEADER

Atomic Nordic Race Manager Peter Landl's prediction for the Tour de Ski was pretty accurate: in absence of the Norwegian superstars his team had some strong moments at the 2021 Tour de Ski. Evgenij Belov finished the season’s first highlight in 6th place, despite major challenges; Hugo Lapalus landed in 10th and is now leading the Cross-Country World Cup’s U23 rankings. Valentin Chauvin sprinted into the world elite twice, while Janosch Brugger and Jonas Baumann also delivered top performances.

OH NO, FRANZ-JOSEF: TORN ACL! OH YES, TEAM: REALLY STRONG!

This past race weekend was a rollercoaster of emotions for the Atomic Nordic unit. Franz-Josef Rehrl was meant to finish on the podium in the Nordic Combined World Cup on home turf in Ramsau am Dachstein. Instead, he ended up in the OR after a mega jump in the trials – cruciate ligament rupture, season over. Cold comfort: from his hospital bed in Linz he watched his Atomic buddies perform strongly – 3rd place for Lukas Greiderer in the first and Fabian Riessle in the second Ramsau race. And there is also sensational news from biathlon evergreen Simon Eder’s performance at his home World Cup in Hochfilzen: 50 shots, 50 hits, nobody shoots as well as he does!
