Rossignol’s athletes tell you their holidays! The Italian, Matteo Marsaglia, share with you his trip in Bali.
“I went in Bali at the end of April. I needed warmth, sea and make surf. I love this sport but I don’t have time to practice. I spent my first week in Seminyak and I moved all around to surf and enjoy the sun. After, I was in the south of the country. It’s the place where you can finf the best spots of surf: Bingin, Impossible, Dreamland, PadangPadang... It was perfect. Then, I finished my trip in Gili Trawangan, a little nice island. I made my first diving and I swam with big turtles. Now, I come back home for the summer training. We have just made a physical stage in Elbe with the Team and I will restart skiing on the 12th June.”
This is not the end of the winter for the two members of Team Rossignol! Marie Marchand-Arvier and Marion Rolland prepare for next season with a training course in Austria. One week in Kaunertal and one week in Hintertux. These trainings are based on speed in order to test and develop the new skis in Super G and downhill. The whole under a nice sun! Have nice training girls!
“We took note of the decision of Jean-Baptiste Grange to join another brand as from next winter. After a complicated season, JB felt the necessity to continue the second part of his career by taking a totally new look at himself. Of course, we understand this choice even if we regret it. It is rather frequent that an athlete needs radical change to continue to evolve at his best level and these decisions are always very difficult to take. We lived unforgettable moments with JB (in particular his victories during the World Cup in 2010/11 and of course his title of World Champion in slalom last year). We don’t forget that he was one of the first to confirm his loyalty to Rossignol when we were confronted with a very difficult period of our story in 2009. We wish Jean-Baptiste all the success he deserves during his future adventure, which will continue to fascinate us.” Rossignol Group.
Following a fall last week, Jean-Baptiste Grange should observe a rest period of one week, victim of a sprain to his knee, operated in 2009. But after new examinations today, he suffers finally from a partial break of the ACL of the right knee according to the communiqué of the French Federation of Ski.
He will be operating on April 11th. We wish him a very good recovery.
