Riders in this news : Henrik KRISTOFFERSEN
Following the launch of the Hero Range on Thursday in Kitzbühel, Henrik Kristoffersen has realized a strong performance in Austria taking the second place of the slalom! The racer from Rossignol Team signs the third podium of his career behind Felix Neureuther (GER) and ahead of Patrick Thaler (ITA).
Ninth of a technical first run, the Norwegian has skiing very well in a bumpy second run and was so happy to sign a podium here during the mythic stage of Kitzbühel. “I used to watch this race as a kid. Kitz is very special, I’m very proud to make a podium here.” When we ask the talented Norwegian what he has changed since last year, he thinks that “he is one year older and he is only concentrated this year on the World Cup and not between the Europa Cup and the World Cup stages.”
At only 19 years old, Henrik Kristoffersen is already among the best slalom guys of the world but for the moment he prefers to stay focused on the next World Cups – slalom in Schladming and Giant Slalom in St Moritz- and not to think about the Olympic Games: “I don’t know what Olympic Games are, I don’t want to imagine, I just want to learn about this big event”.
Next stop for Henrik Kristoffersen will be at Schladming on Tuesday, still for a night slalom… To be a HERO one more time?
