Le Groupe Rossignol annonce ce jour la signature de deux nouveaux contrats qui viendront renforcer le Team masculin. Les Fran?ais Thomas Mermillod Blondin et Nicolas Thoule rejoignent la marque is?roise pour une dur?e de deux ans.
A 30 ans, Thomas Mermillod Blondin poss?de l'exp?rience du plus haut niveau et a montr? ? plusieurs reprises qu'il ?tait capable de se classer parmi les meilleurs mondiaux. Deuxi?me du Super G des finales de Lenzerheide cet hiver, le skieur du Grand-Bornand est ?galement mont? sur trois podiums de Coupe du Monde en Super Combin? ? Kitzb?hel, Sotchi et Bansko. Sa polyvalence sera un r?el atout pour la poursuite du d?veloppement de notre mat?riel.
Thomas Mermillod Blondin : << Les tests avec Rossignol se sont tr?s bien pass?s au printemps, j'ai vraiment eu un bon feeling et j'ai d?cid? de rejoindre cette marque fran?aise avec laquelle j'ai fait mes d?buts. Je suis tr?s heureux de pouvoir travailler avec cette ?quipe et d'?voluer sur des skis course qui sont directement produits en France. C'est un nouveau challenge pour moi, un nouveau d?part. J'ai bien termin? la saison derni?re avec mon podium en Super G et j'esp?re que je d?buterai l'ann?e prochaine avec d'aussi bons r?sultats. Mon objectif est de bien figurer au classement g?n?ral de la Coupe du Monde le plus rapidement possible et bien s?r d'accrocher une m?daille ? Beaver Creek en f?vrier prochain. >>
De son c?t?, le jeune Nicolas Thoule viendra compl?ter l'?quipe technique de Rossignol. N? en 1990, le skieur de Ch?tel compte d?j? 16 d?parts en Coupe du Monde et a int?gr? le groupe A de l'?quipe de France pour la saison prochaine en g?ant et en slalom.
Le Groupe Rossignol est tr?s fier d'accueillir ces deux nouvelles recrues et leur souhaite de pouvoir atteindre leurs objectifs les plus pr?cieux lors des deux ann?es ? venir.
The Rossignol and Lange brands have just put the finishing touches to an agreement with the Austrian pool and will now be part of the Federation. Rossignol will supply skis / bindings / boots for alpine skiing and ski cross, and skis / boots / poles for Nordic skiing, while LANGE will provide alpine boots.
Bruno Cercley, CEO of the Rossignol Group: "We are delighted with this landmark agreement with the Austrian Ski Federation. Competition is part of our DNA, and it is an honor to equip the champions of this great nation in world skiing. Our long-term commitment will enable us to build effective ties with both racers and the federation, with the joint goal of winning and thereby helping develop skiing in Austria and the rest of the world. It heralds a milestone in our development plans and we are both very proud and delighted."
Bernadette Schild signs on for two seasons
After the agreement was signed with the pool, Austrian Bernadette Schild decided to join the Rossignol brand for the next two seasons. This talented 24-year-old slalom skier already has three World Cup podiums under her belt and several Top 10 finishes over the last two seasons.
Bernadette Schild: "I see this partnership with Rossignol as a way of working on and developing my technique, because the equipment is simply incredible! I was given a warm welcome by the entire team, and I can't wait to start the season and become an even more integral part of the team."

Bernadette Schild's arrival will strengthen an already formidable technical female team at Rossignol, and we would like to wish the young Austrian every success in quickly achieving her key objectives, starting next season with the Beaver Creek World Championships.
