The #fischerracefamily starts into the new season with a balanced squad with athletes for all disciplines. Certainly the chances for podiums are more in the technical disciplines, but also in the speed disciplines we have some really hot irons in the fire. Besides the fact that we were able to keep the existing squad largely the same, we can also welcome two new additions to Fischer.
The first races will be the Giant Slalom World Cup start in Sölden (Oct. 28 & 29), for the women the Slalom in Levi (Nov. 11 & 12) and the Downhill in Zermatt/Cervinia (Nov. 18 & 19) and for the men the Downhill in Zermatt/Cervinia (Nov. 11 & 12) and the Slalom in Gurgl (Nov. 18).
We are looking forward to the new season and hope that together with you we will often have the opportunity to cheer!
In addition, we have with Fabian Gratz (GER), Luca Aerni (SUI), Noel von Grünigen (SUI), Urs Kryenbühel (SUI), Fadri Janutin (SUI), Billy Major (GBR), Giuliano Razzoli (ITA), Steven Amiez (FRA), Loevan Parand (FRA), Simon Fournier (CAN), Charlie Guest (GBR), Lisa Hörnblad (SWE) and Neja Dvornik (SLO) further strong athletes in the squad, who are always good for a top result and a surprise. This squad will certainly be strengthened by situational assignments of young talents from the B squads, such as Nina Aster (AUT), Simone Wild (CH), Livio Hiltprand (CH) or Corrado Barbera (ITA).
We wish everyone a good start and an injury-free and successful season!
