    L'évolution du KORE

    Parfois, on se retrouve dos au mur. Les doutes s'accumulent mais, en même temps, ils allument une flamme en nous. Comme le grand poète Eminem l'a si joliment dit, « La réussite est mon unique p***** de solution, pas l'échec. » C'est donc avec un leitmotiv similaire en tête que la division ski de HEAD s'est attelée à la tâche – et quelle tâche ! Au vu des tentatives précédentes, il fallait tout recommencer à zéro.

    Frame Of Mind avec Sam Kuch

    Einstein a bel et bien prouvé la relativité du temps, mais dans quelle mesure notre perception du temps peut-elle varier ? Sheila Street, la mère de Sam Kuch, prétend que son fils peut ralentir le temps. On a bien du mal à saisir comment il fait et encore plus à l'expliquer. Mais on ne peut pas nier que regarder Sam Kuch skier est une expérience quasi religieuse, mêlant l'impossible et le naturel. L'idée que certaines choses sont simplement écrites et que certaines personnes sont là pour faire exactement ce qu'elles font à un instant précis prend alors tout son sens. On peut les envier ou l'accepter et se laisser porter.

    Three HEAD athletes in Freeride World Tour overall top three.

    It does appear as some skiers have a special deal with the universe. A relation with gravity based on a different set of rules than the rest of us. Is this why Sam Kuch floated up to the freeriding stratosphere on a star-studded wagon? Or is he just a damn good skier. Maybe the best?

    The Bec giveth and the Bec taketh away. Never has an overall 2nd place in the Freeride World Tour been so bittersweet as for the Norwegian Olympic mogul skier gone freeride queen, Hedvig Wessel. And few bronze medals so unanticipated and celebrated as Carl Regnér’s third spot in the overall ski men rankings. Snowboarder Cody Bramwell was also seemingly pleased with his trophy for the 3rd place in the overall snowboard category. But let’s take it back for a moment and set the scene.
