Kristoffersen praises ex-rival Hirscher after the premiere win

They have competed in countless races against each other and have been working together since this season: Henrik Kristoffersen and Marcel Hirscher. Now they have reached a first milestone.


Henrik Kristoffersen is the beaming winner of the slalom in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

For years, the duel between Marcel Hirscher (33) and Henrik Kristoffersen (28) has delighted ski fans. Especially in the slalom, the Austrians and the Norwegians didn’t give each other anything. Usually Kristoffersen was left behind. The races lived off their rivalry – until Hirscher announced his retirement in September 2019.

Then in the spring of 2022 the big coup. With his ski brand “Van Deer – Red Bull Sports”, founded in 2021, the 67-time World Cup winner Hirscher took the former competitor under his wing. Although a change of material is not always easy, Kristoffersen is building on the old successes with its new battens. And how!
