Gear Guide: Franz Signs With Fischer Race Family
The 2017-18 alpine skiing World Cup season is over and the Fischer Race Family is already in the middle of preparations for the next season despite the rising temperatures. The Ried-based company is especially delighted to announce a new signing from the Austrian team: speed specialist Max Franz will be racing in future with skis, boots and bindings from Fischer.
The 28-year-old racer Max Franz will be part of the Austrian team of the Fischer Race Family from the coming season. The Carinthian is consistently strong above all in the downhill and super-G disciplines, which he has confirmed with a number of podium finishes and a bronze medal at the 2017 World Championships in St. Moritz. He is optimistic about the future collaboration with Fischer.
“I’m delighted to be on board with the Fischer Race Family and compete in the 18-19 World Cup season together with a new partner,” Franz said. “With an Austrian product under my feet and a strong partner such as Vincent Kriechmayr in the team I am confident that I will be able to ski for top places in the upcoming season. The goal is clearly to win a medal at the World Championships in Are.”
Racing Director Siegi Voglreiter is happy about the new contract with the speed specialist.
“I’m sure that Max will be a great asset to the Fischer Race Family in the speed events. Together with Vincent Kriechmayr we will have a strong, young team here from the Austrian ranks in the future whose respective qualities go extremely well together and can drive each other to top performances. Additionally we will get important feedback from the two of them for the development of our products – and this will enable us to write the success stories together.”
