Aksel Lund Svindal spent all of last years World Cup season as a spectator. After two speed races of this season, the rest of the field might be excused for wishing the HEAD World Cup Rebel was still watching! This was win number two of the season for the thirty-two year old Rebel. Matthias Mayer made it a double victory for HEAD in taking second place with Peter Fill in third. Kjetil Jansrud and Adrien Theaux made it four HEAD World Cup Rebels in the top ten in seventh and ninth places respectively.
Aksel Lund Svindal returned to the World Cup and the HEAD World Cup Rebel scored his 26th World Cup win as he edged out Peter Fill for the win and Travis Ganong took third. Svindal won the opening training run for the race yet when it all counted Svindal did just enough for the win.
Lara Gut produced a devastating second run to elevate herself from third after the first run and up into the lead after the second run. Eva Maria Brem stormed down the second run lift herself into second overall from being in eighth after the first run and Federica Brignone slipped down to third. First run leader Mikaela Shiffrin crashed three gates from home.
Every limit pushed, pushes our sport HEAD Ski Brand Campaign “What’s your limit?” challenges athletes
Everybody has a limit, everybody falls behind, everybody suffers setbacks. The trick is to get back up, to keep pushing, to raise those limits and ultimately change the rules. HEAD picks up this very thought in its ski brand campaign “What’s your limit?” Already in its third year, the campaign challenges real-life HEAD ski athletes just as much as everyday ski fans to keep push their own limits and, ultimately, their own sport.
We are happy to present the new HEAD JOY ski line with the continuation of the global #24HRJOY campaign.
