Coirier and Salencon to rely on the quality of the traditional Austrian ski company in future

Freerider Nicolas Salencon (ARG) already made a name for himself in his first season. He was a force to be reckoned with in the Swatch Freeride World Tour, clinching sixth place in the overall standings. His new team colleague: top athlete Adrien Coirier (FRA). The two of them have changed their ski brand and signed a two-year contract with Fischer Sports. And, backed by his new sponsor for skis, bindings and boots, Coirier has his sights set on a big goal: "I want to win the Freeride Tour next winter!"
Freerider Nicolas Salencon (ARG) already made a name for himself in his first season. He was a force to be reckoned with in the Swatch Freeride World Tour, clinching sixth place in the overall standings. The 29-year-old is now changing his ski brand and has signed a two-year contract with Fischer Sports. And, backed by his new sponsor for skis, bindings and boots, he has good reason to be ambitious: "I want to be among the leaders in next winter's Freeride Tour!"

The Argentinian, who comes from Bariloche, spent last winter in Les Arcs (FRA) where he worked professionally on his passion for freeriding. And this was reflected in his successes. Salencon clinched third place in the legendary final in Verbier (SUI) – his first top result of the tour. The qualified skiing instructor and coach is the ideal addition to the Fischer team: "The aim is for him to strengthen our presence on the Freeride World Tour. We also like the fact that he has an Alpine background thanks to his training and is an excellent skier," says Christian Lutz, Marketing Manager at Fischer, looking forward to a stronger team.

Besides the good equipment, the family spirit and personal contact were deciding factors in Salencon's decision. Even after his first visit to the Austrian company he came away with many positive impressions: "Fischer really is like a big family. I feel good here and that's important to me!"
