Cuche service man assigned to Bode Miller

Chris Krause&Didier CucheHead Ski service technician Chris Krause, the man Didier Cuche credited much of his success and 16 of his 21 World Cup victories to, has reportedly been assigned to American Bode Miller for the coming season.

Cuche joined Head after the 2006 season and his career took a decided up-swing with him winning his first of four World Cup downhill titles in the 2007 season.

Cuche was ranked no worse than third overall for the next five straight seasons.

Miller, the top male skier to ever represent the U.S. on the World Cup circuit, also switched to Head after the 2006 season and has won two titles since that shift, the 2008 overall crown and a combined trophy that same season.

Miller’s most recent serviceman, Guntram Mathis, will be working with his son Marcel who burst onto the World Cup scene last season with his first World Cup points and two podiums in five scoring races.
