Franjo von Allmen remains a HEAD Worldcup Rebel

Speed discipline specialist Franjo von Allmen will stay with HEAD to compete in the World Cup. The Swiss athlete, who has trusted in HEAD since his youth, has extended his contract. In January, the 22-year-old podiumed in the World Cup for the first time in his career: Franjo von Allmen raced to third place in the Super-G in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, his twelfth World Cup event. He will be supported by his service man Sepp Kuppelwieser. 

"Franjo von Allmen was the rising star of last season in the speed events. We are very pleased that he has chosen to stay with HEAD. Together with his service man Sepp Kuppelwieser, who has already worked with a great deal of success in Switzerland as Beat Feuz's service man, we can now guarantee him the best possible support," emphasizes HEAD Racing Director Rainer Salzgeber. "Not many people notch up their first podium after just twelve World Cup races. That was an outstanding achievement. We know, however, that he is still a young skier who has much experience to gain. I'm not expecting a season of victories straight away, but I hope that he will continue to develop with us step by step. We also know what potential he has and that gives us a lot to look forward to."


"HEAD played a significant role in my success"

"I competed in my first FIS races with HEAD. These skis got me into the World Cup and onto the podium this season. HEAD has played a significant role in my success and I am very pleased that we will keep working together. I have felt part of the HEAD family for many years and am delighted to remain a HEAD Worldcup Rebel," says Franjo von Allmen.
