Henrik Kristoffersen drove with Rossignol for 18 years. Now they go their separate ways. The Norwegian announced this in a post on social networks. I’ve been working for the same brand, Rossignol, for 18 years. I have had a special relationship with Rossignol since 2004 and we have achieved great things together. These are moments I will cherish forever. But it’s time to try something new. I want to thank Rossignol for giving me the chance when I was a little kid and for standing by me ever since. Thank you to all the people I have met and had the pleasure of working with during our time together. It was one hell of a ride,” Kristoffersen wrote.
Now, of course, the question arises as to which ski manufacturer will accommodate the overall World Cup winner in slalom. A possible option is a change to the Hirscher team Van Deer. But the Norwegian and former rival of Hirscher has not yet confirmed the “transfer”. But a change to Van Deer would be obvious. The rumors have been reported several times in recent weeks. In the last World Cup winter, the Norwegian ski star was dissatisfied with his equipment.
According to media reports, Kristoffersen has already completed test drives with the Hirscher skis. However, test drives with Nordica also followed. Van Deer is building a powerful squad for the coming season. Briton Charlie Raposo and Norwegian Timon Haugan have already been signed. With Kristoffersen you would land a real coup.
