Objective Sochi 2014 with Didier Défago!
Didier Défagoextends his contract with Rossignol Group up to the Sochi Olympic Games in 2014. A Rossignol skier for 8 years so far, the Olympic Downhill Champion 2010 will race in Rossignol skis and bindings and Lange boots.
Didier éfago: "The important thing is that I know Rossignol Group and we get on really well. We have the same goal - to fight to be ahead at the finish line. One positive aspect of this is that we all know how each person works when it comes to developing equipment or trying out new things."
Absent last season due to a knee injury, Didier Défago has made a successful comeback to the circuit. With a win in Bormio last December and top 20 rankings in Downhill, Super G and GS at the Schladming finals, the Swiss skier can take a great deal of self-assurance into the seasons to come.
Angelo Maina, Director of Rossignol's Racing Department: "We are very pleased that Didier has chosen to sign for a further two years with Rossignol Group. After his season out through injury, we have been impressed by his results this winter. To come back at that level, in three different disciplines, is really very encouraging for the seasons to come."
We are delighted by this show of trust from Didier Défago and are committed to supporting him in continuing his top-level success.
