As is tradition, the new season of the Alpine Ski World Cup opens on the 17th and 18th of October with the men's and women's Giant Slalom events in Sölden. Due to Corona, however, it will be an exceptional winter. A total of 39 men's and 35 women's events are scheduled, headlined by the World Championship in Cortina d'Ampezzo in February. The HEAD World Cup Rebels want to show right from the start that the path to victory can again only lead through them this season.
The new HEAD Racing Collection bears the signature of one of the greatest alpine skiing athletes of all time. Aksel Lund Svindal has been closely involved in the development of the new design from the very beginning. The result is a collection that reflects the Norwegian athlete's racing DNA: Trust, Purity & Momentum - three keywords that were particularly important to Aksel Lund Svindal when implementing HEAD's new Racing Collection.
A prominent new addition to the HEAD Alpine World Cup Team: Vincent Kriechmayr, winner of two medals at the World Championships in Aare, joins the HEAD World Cup Rebels. The 28-year-old athlete from Upper Austria has signed a contract until 2022.
Two Crystal Globes for the new queen of the speed disciplines Corinne Suter, as well as a Crystal Globe each for Beat Feuz and Alexis Pinturault. A total of 20 World Cup victories, 19 second places, 17 third places.
