On Saturday last weekend the downhill pro season was kicked off in Soelden/Austria. All athletes were motivated for this great event because it´s no start to a regular season: It´s the Olympic season with the games in Sotschi/Russia in February next year. We had the opportunity to meet our sponsored athletes from Norway, Switzerland and Russia for a photo shooting there. We had some great action with all athletes and got some nice shots for our next campaigns. World Champion Aksel Lund Svindal missed the podium but was happy with his 4th place. We will publish a gallery with more photos of the shooting in the next few weeks, stay tuned!
If you want to see the second race in full length, watch this video of a German TV station. The Norway athletes are visible at min 1:47, 3:30 and 30:30. And just have a look at minute 5:00, there you will see, which international pro athlete also wears X-BIONIC® for his comeback after a long injury break.
