HEAD are delighted to announce that one of France’s leading World Cup ski racers is joining the HEAD World Cup Rebels for the forthcoming season. Alexis Pinturault (23 – Courchevel) joins Adrien Theaux and other French racers in using the leading ski brand in the 2013 – 2014 World Cup season for the next few years.
Alexis Pinturault is a proven World Cup winner in three disciplines yet wishes to be challenging for more World Cup race wins next season and the Overall Globe.
Pinturault has won seven World Cup races across all disciplines except Downhill, including the season ending Super G last season and has been on the podium 22 times in total. Having finished third in the Overall standings last season, Pinturault has long harboured hopes of challenging for the Overall Globe and sees his relationship with HEAD as the best way forward to achieve this.
HEAD CEO Johan Eliasch was delighted to announce the signing: “The decision of Alexis to join the successful HEAD World Cup Rebels is a phenomenal testimony that our products are second to none. I look forward to seeing Alexis competing for HEAD.”
Pinturault joins Adrien Theaux, Johan Clarey, Cyprien Richard and Mathieu Faivre from France on HEAD skis and boots.
