At not quite 25 years old, the french skier is already one of the greats of French skiing, having equalled Jean- Claude Killy’s 50-year-old French record of 15 World Cup victories. The Jura-based brand Richard Mille is delighted to join him in celebrating this exceptional achievement.

This season has been rich in emotions for Alexis Pinturault, skier-partner of Richard Mille, who wears a prototype RM 035 on his wrist. Despite a few hiccups at the start of the season, Alexis is currently nishing his World Cup in a blaze of glory. After his victory in Naeba in Japan and his two podium places in Hinterstoder, the Frenchman picked up the rst Kranjska Gora race – his fourth victory in a row and his sixth this season, ahead of both Schörghofer and Hirscher, before coming in second in the Slovenian Giant Slalom. Alexis now holds the French record for the number of men’s podiums.

With this many victories, the 2014 Sochi Olympic Gold medallist has equalled the record set in 1967 by Jean- Claude Killy, the French skiing legend, which remained intact all these years.

“Matching Killy is very special indeed. I’m thrilled,” says Alexis. “It means a great deal in France. But I hope to beat the record before my career’s over!” he adds with a smile.

The skier from the Savoie region should be justi ably proud of his performance. His un agging optimism shows his determination to overcome the greatest obstacles, never giving up, always returning to claim his place at the top.

Richard Mille congratulates its young partner for his ghting spirit and ability to achieve ever greater heights.
