Positive news from the cross country world again: Andrew “Andy” Newell and Simeon “Simi” Hamilton (both USA) have decided to change to Fischer boots. As both sprint stars from the US have been successful on skis from the Nordic number one for years now, they will now be placing their trust in the complete ski and boot system from one source in future.
For the 15th and 20th of the 13l14 sprint World Cup this not only means placing trust in a different boot, but also a change to the NNN (New Nordic Norm) binding system. However the interaction of the system convinced the two top athletes. “I have had the chance to test the complete system this spring and I think it will be a very positive change in my skiing,” says Andy Newell, explaining the reason for the change. Simi Hamilton agrees: “After testing the Fischer boots this spring, I have decided to use both – skis and boots from Fischer. I really like the stability and feeling while skiing with Fischer boots.”Their equipment sponsor is also pleased with their choice. “As the two strongest sprinters from the US-Team, Andy and Simi, , deciding in favour of our complete system is a positive sign in terms of the US market, which is very important for us ,” says Gerhard Urain, Nordic Racing Director at Fischer, delighted about how the boot team is growing.
