Cornelia Hütter joins the HEAD World Cup Rebels
HEAD are delighted to announce that Cornelia Hütter, one of the most exciting young speed racers of the last few seasons has decided to join the HEAD World Cup Rebels team for the forthcoming Olympic season.
Cornelia Hütter made her World Cup debut in 2011 and it was not long before she was on the World Cup podium for the first time (December 2013 in Val d’Isere). Since then Hütter has amassed one win and ten podiums on the World Cup despite spending most of the 2016 - 2017 season injured after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and damaging the meniscus in her right knee during a training crash.
Hütter commented on making the decision to move to the most successful brand on the Women’s World Cup Downhill and Super G programmes, "I am very happy to be part of the HEAD family from next season! As an athlete you want to develop further and always look for the best possible success. And I am sure that I can achieve my goals with HEAD best. I still have to wait a bit for my knee injuries, but I cannot wait to get back on skis and go through the first tests in August. I am absolutely optimistic to be able to start with an excellent material in the World Cup and Olympic Winter.”
Rainer Salzgeber, boss of the HEAD World Cup Rebels programme added “I am delighted that Cornelia Hütter is joining Head. Connie is a strong and powerful racer who has already proved that she can race at the top of the sport and win races. She joins a successful and powerful team, adding to the strength in depth of the team.”
CEO of HEAD Johan Eliasch commented, "I am delighted that Cornelia has joined the HEAD World Cup Rebels team. Cornelia is a rising star in Downhill and Super G, and already a proven race winner. I look forward to seeing her add to her successes over the coming seasons.”
It is hoped that Hütter will return from injury adding to the strength of the Women’s World Cup Rebels team. Hütter joins the speed team that includes Lindsey Vonn, Lara Gut, Anna Veith and new signing Tina Weirather
