Henrik Kristoffersen, a former rival of Marcel Hirscher, is moving to his Van-Deer skate company. The company announced this on Saturday. The Norwegian announced on Friday that he would bid farewell to his French factory Rossignol.

The winner of 28 individual World Cup races described the relationship with Hirscher, who retired in 2019, really special. “It’s a friendship that started as a fair competition. We fought each other – when I was second, Marcel was first and vice versa. Now it’s time to win together.”

“It is a great honor to work with such a great man.”

“It is truly an honor to be able to work with such an outstanding player. It is unbelievable that something like this is possible at such an early stage of the game,” said Hirscher, who founded Van der der in 2021 and recently signed Brett Charlie Raposo as a World Cup driver. our project.”
