Vinatzer (ITA). SL specialist.Does Nordica not supply any FIS athletes skis in the technical events? I know that some wear the Dobermann boots.
Those are definitely unique glasses.
It means their national body was lax in uploading that information to the FIS website, OR, that the athlete is without a formal endorsement contract (e.g., razzoli a few years ago, switching boots/skis between races)What does it mean on the results sheet when the ski manufacturer is not listed for the athlete? They obviously chose a brand name ski, but are these athletes not sponsored by any manufacturer so their ski goes unlisted? (Please excuse my ignorance if my questions posts are breaking up the skier performance/results talk, but I do find the whole business of ski racing industry interesting, and would hope others do too).
He was leader in Kitzbühel slalom after run 1 last year. So not an unknown...but he has never podiumed before. And who know he was strong in GS as well. Nice pick.Looks like the weather was good.
Impressive with that choice. Was it a WAG, dart throw, or did you know something about him?
