CANADIAN SKI CHAMPIONS CHOOSE DAINESE
25 November 2011 | News
Dainese couldn't celebrate the beginning of the winter sports season any better. On the eve of the Lake Louise (Canada) World Cup event, the Canadian Federation made Dainese their winter wear supplier. The Canadian Federation chose Dainese for the high quality and level of their helmets and protections.
With this agreement Dainese adds four world class athletes to its roster: Erik Guay, current downhill world champion, Manuel Osborne Paradis, 9 podiums throughout his career, John Kucera, 2009 downhill world champion and 3 podiums under his belt, and Jan Hudec, silver medal in the 2007 Downhill World Championship. All of these athletes have chosen Dainese helmets and protections.
The Canadian athletes will also be involved in data-gathering for an important project Dainese is developing in collaboration with FIS: the D-air Ski. After the great results obtained in motorcycle competitions, the International Ski Federation asked Dainese to study a possible application of the air bag technology to high level skiing. The help of all of the athletes on the Dainese Team is vital for the development of this project.
Dainese wishes to thank the Canadian Federation and wishes Erik, Manuel, John and Jan a very successful season
