Riders in this news : Benoit VALENTIN
19-year old Benoit Valentin from la Plagne (France), winner of the 2011 Half-Pipe World Cup, is joining Rossignol’s Freestyle team for a period of three years in preparation for the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.
The young skier has decided to trust Rossignol to support his sporting objectives over the next three years.
Rossignol has a long-established position as a major player in Freestyle. The brand’s athletes have amassed some exceptional results, including more than ten Winter X-Games medals in eight years.
Rossignol provides its athletes with the best products and technical support, in both Alpine skiing and Freeski. Rossignol’s wealth of experience in racing will also help the freestylers to take their performance to an even higher level.
A refreshed team in preparation for the Olympics
The announcement that the Half-Pipe will be an Olympic sport from 2014 is a real milestone in the development of this sport. With this in mind - and faithful to its sporting traditions – Rossignol has put together a highly competitive Freestyle team, younger but still well-balanced, to carry its banner at major international competitions.
Along with the experience of Xavier Bertoni and the talent of David Wise, Ben’s energy and technique will strengthen the Rossignol team in preparation for future major events.
See you in mid-December, from 15 to 18, at Breckenridge (Colorado) for the first event in the Winter Dew Tour with the entire Rossignol Freestyle team.
