An expanded collaboration between the DSV (German Ski Association) and Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG was announced in May at this year's After-Work Party. The Alpine Director of the DSV, Wolfgang Maier, and Fritz Hollweck, Head of Skipool and Sponsoring from DSV Marketing took the opportunity to sign the contracts at the event. Accordingly, PistenBully is an official partner of the German national ski team for the next two years.
The official outfitting of the athletes took place on 17.10.2014 at Würth's premises in Künzelsau, Swabia. A PistenBully 600 E+ was also present.
Daniel Bohnacker, Olympic competitor who finished third in the Skicross at the 2014 World Cup, was pleased about another contract signing: with PistenBully as his main/head sponsor he is all set for the coming season. Alongside Felix Neureuther and Maria Höfl-Riesch, he was awarded the Golden Ski by the DSV for his accomplishments last season. This the second time he has been honoured in this way since 2011.
In addition to main sponsoring for Daniel Bohnacker, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG has also agreed sponsorship with another athlete. Since 1st October 2014, Florian Notz has also been sporting PistenBully-red headgear for the World Cup season. The 22-year-old cross-country skier from the Swabian Alps took part in his first World Cup races last winter. Florian Notz is starting for Skizunft Römerstein on the Swabian Alps.
The PistenBully team wish their athletes all the best for the coming season and are crossing their fingers very tightly....
