From this season PistenBully is also sponsoring a Nordic combined athlete for the first time in the person of Manuel Faißt. 25-year-old Manuel Faißt of SV Baiersbronn is the new brand ambassador.
Alongside Lisa Zimmermann and Daniel Bohnacker, Manuel Faißt is the third top athlete to receive PistenBully backing. True to the motto “No computers – get out in the snow”, a camp is also planned for Nordic with Manuel’s help. This idea has already proved very successful with the kids over the last few years in skicross and freeski.
Manuel Faißt has finished in the top 15 three times in a row in the World Cup. The three-times junior world champion also competed in the World Championships in Lahti in Finland in 2017. The PistenBully logo will adorn all Manuel Faißt’s headgear in future. The new partnership enjoyed its début on Saturday in the Finnish resort of Ruka.
“I am thrilled about the confidence and sponsorship of Kässbohrer AG. For all winter sport athletes PistenBully is not only a constant companion but also the reason that we can practise our sport at all. If you’re competing in Nordic combined, which requires two competition sites to be groomed, PistenBully is always a reliable and essential element in preparing for our World Cups. I am very proud to be part of the PistenBully family now.”
Thilo Vogelsang, Head of Marketing and Communication at Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG:
“With Manuel we are now bringing our commitment to sports promotion to the world of Nordic skiing. And bringing the Nordic disciplines to children! The Nordic Camp too will show children how much fun they can have outside in the snow. We’re already looking forward to celebrating a successful season with Manuel”.
