Riders in this news :  Martin FOURCADE


Rossignol Group is announcing the extension of Martin Fourcade's contract up to the Sochi Olympic Games in 2014. On the eve of the Ruhpolding World Championships, the current biathlon World Cup leader is restating his faith in Rossignol.

Martin Fourcade: "I am very satisfied with the equipment, we are working closely with Rossignol to produce the best skis. This means I can concentrate on my preparation and training, and have the peace of mind of knowing the rest is being managed perfectly. It's also a pleasure to be working with a French company. I wanted to go on with the group when it was not doing so well, so it makes sense to stay with them when the business is doing better."

Sylvain Fanjas-Claret (Biathlon Manager): "This is great news for Rossignol's Nordic team. With his caliber and professionalism, Martin brings real positive energy into the development of new products. It's a pleasure to work with a champion of his standing.

With Martin Fourcade's signing of the new contract, the longstanding partnership between Rossignol Group and the brilliant athlete continues.

Bruno Cercley (Rossignol Group President): "At Rossignol we are all delighted to be continuing our incredible journey with Martin Fourcade. Not only does Martin have the capacity for physical and mental commitment that is found in the great Nordic champions, but he also has the ability to steer the continuous development of our equipment in a straightforward and precise way. We are honored by Martin's loyalty to our brand, our equipment and our staff. We have been working together in something very like a family atmosphere for many years, which is how we have been able to hoist ourselves up to the highest levels in the extremely demanding discipline of biathlon. The magnificent season that Martin is having has filled us with enthusiasm, and augurs well for extraordinary moments in the years to come.
