DARIO COLOGNA GOES FOR FISCHER SKIS AND BOOTS
Dario Cologna (SUI) has used skis from the Nordic number one ever since the beginning of his cross country career. The Swiss winner of the overall World Cup title has decided that from now on he will also be hunting for points and medals with Fischer boots.
Everyone who knows the three-time winner of the Tour de Ski and overall World Cup knows that he leaves nothing to chance. This exceptional athlete from Switzerland carried out extensive equipment tests in Ramsau am Dachstein (AUT) when the season ended. It was not long before he saw that the overall package from his long-standing equipment sponsor was convincing. "We try to fine-tune things in all areas. My experience with the skis has always been good. And a lot has happened in the boot sector in recent years at Fischer as well," says a very satisfied Dario Cologna. "With this set-up the skis and the boots are now tuned to each other to perfection. I see it as a considerable advantage and this is what prompted me to switch in good time for the upcoming WCH winter."
It goes without saying that Fischer is delighted with the decision. "We're really happy about Dario's opinion on our overall package. It shows us quite clearly that the work we put in to developing boots is worthwhile," says Gerhard Urain, Nordic Racing Director at Fischer. "We also have high hopes of the partnership with such an experienced athlete as Dario in terms of future developments."
Armed with his new equipment, Dario Cologna has already been taking part in the first training camp for the new season since last Wednesday.
