After four very difficult years, Marc Rochat is now going really steep in the slalom World Cup.

Vaud native Marc Rochat has long suffered from his inglorious Swiss record. Between December 9, 2017 and January 29, 2019, the son of former Swiss Ski Vice President Jean Philippe Rochat retired in 16 of 20 slaloms. For some coaches, he was therefore considered a hopeless case. Rochat was deported from the World to the European Cup team.

“Although certain people no longer believed in me, I never completely lost confidence in myself,” says the 30-year-old, who grew up on the outskirts of Lausanne. And now the rock ‘n’ roll fan and hobby guitarist is being rewarded for his perseverance. After finishing seventh in the night slalom in Garmisch on Wednesday, the slalom specialist is also in the top ten on the Chuenisbärgli. After that, Rochat presents his emotional side and has a few tears of joy in his eyes. “When you achieve a result like this in front of such a great audience, it’s really the best reward for the very hard work I’ve done to this point.”
