Fischer Race Family also growing in Switzerland

The Fischer Race Family continues to grow after the new Austrian signing Max Franz: the two Swiss athletes Patrick Küng and Thomas Tumler have likewise changed to the ski manufacturer headquartered in Ried im Innkreis and will be racing with Fischer from now on.

The Fischer Race Family is also growing in the strong nation of Switzerland: with Patrick Küng and Thomas Tumler the Austrian family-owned company has been joined by two more promising athletes. For Küng, an experienced racer who won the Downhill World Championship in 2015, equipment is a critical factor in having a successful start in the 18I19 World Championship season: "After what was a difficult season for me I am pleased to have a new partner by my side for the new one. I am looking forward to the new challenge and will go into the new season full of motivation and energy."

Thomas Tumler is another athlete with huge potential who has changed to the Fischer Race Family. The 28-year-old Giant Slalom and Super G specialist is clearly pleased about the collaboration with the Austrian ski producer: "A good partnership with my equipment provider is particularly important for me. With Fischer I have found exactly what I was looking for and I am proud that I will be competing in future races with a team that has a family spirit like the Fischer Race Family."

 "We are delighted that we have been able to grow our speed team so dynamically with racers from a strong nation like Switzerland," says Racing Director Siegi Voglreiter. "With the experienced Patrick Küng and up-and-coming Thomas Tumler we will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the future. The Fischer Race Family will be fully motivated as we start out in the new World Championship season together with them."
