Didier Défago extends his contract with Rossignol Group up to the Sochi Games in 2014. A Rossignol skier for 8 years, the Olympic champion 2010 in downhill will race on Rossignol skis & bindings and Lange boots. Didier Défago commented his decision: "The important thing is that I know Rossignol Group and we get on really well. We have the same goal - to fight to be ahead at the finish line. One positive aspect of this is that we all know how each person works when it comes to developing equipment or trying out new things."

Absent last season due to a knee injury, Didier Défago has made a successful comeback to the circuit. With a win in Bormio last December and top 20 rankings in downhill, super-G and giant slalom at the Schladming finals, the Swiss skier can take a great deal of self-confidence into the seasons to come.

Angelo Maina, Director of Rossignol's Racing Department said: "We are very pleased that Didier has chosen to sign for further two years with Rossignol Group. After his season out due to injury, we have been impressed by his results this winter. To come back at that level, in three different events, is really very encouraging for the seasons to come."
