Norwegian skistar Frode Estil decided to change ski brand last week, and it didn’t take long before Petter Northug knocked on his door to pick up his best skis.
– He (Petter Northug) knocked on the door very quickly after the decision to switch was made and took off with lots of skis, said Frode Estil.
Northug, the rising star of the Norwegian men's team, is on Fischer, which is what Estil raced on until the end of this past season.
– Even if I don’t succeed this winter you might still see â€œFrode's skisâ€ on the podium next winter. Petter raced on my skis in some races this past season, and it looks like he might continue to do that in the future as well, said Estil.
