After winning the most amount of points on the Menâ€™s World Cup Tour for the fourth year in a row, HEAD are delighted to announce that one of the most exciting Slalom skiers of the last few years, Andre Myhrer (2012 World Cup Slalom Champion) has decided to join the HEAD World Cup Rebels for the forthcoming seasons. …Â
Andre Myhrer has been successful in both Slalom and Giant Slalom in his career to date and sees the successful development of the HEAD range of skis, boots and bindings as the stepping-stone that his career needs for further success on the World Cup tour.
Johan Eliasch, CEO of HEAD, commented: â€œWith Andre we have a strong addition to our team who we are sure will help bring us more victories in the technical disciplines, especially in slalom. I am very pleased to have Andre on board.â€
Myhrer commented about signing for HEAD: â€œHEAD is a very professional company, the number one in the world. They are world leading in all the disciplines except slalom, but that’s something that I am planning to change. I am proud to be a part of the Head family and really looking forward to get back to work after my rehab period.”
HEAD World Cup Rebels Team Manager, Rainer Salzgeber added: “It is a dream to have an absolute slalom star in our team with Andre. I hope, with him, to create the basis to celebrate such successes in slalom as in all other disciplines.”
With Myhrer looking to add to his five World Cup wins plus the 2012 Slalom Globe, the HEAD brand will soon be challenging on the World Cup podium again.
