Like with Feuz: Ultner is supposed to help Swiss ski talent to be successful

Beat Feuz has celebrated many successes in the Ski World Cup. Sepp Kuppelwieser, the service man, was always at his side and yet in the background. Now the man from Ultimo should help another Swiss to reach the top of the world.

Franjo von Allmen is considered the next winning driver in Switzerland. In order to achieve this goal, the 22-year-old will receive help from South Tyrol - with which his famous compatriot Beat Feuz has only had good experiences.

Sepp Kuppelwieser is an old hand in the Ski World Cup circus. The service man from Ultental has been working with the “Head” company for years and looks after athletes who are traveling with the material from Austria. Last winter, Kuppelwieser prepared the skis of Stefan Babinsky, who achieved his breakthrough in the speed sector with strong results.

Previously, he was Beat Feuz's serviceman for over 11 years and celebrated pretty much all the successes that can be achieved in skiing with the “Kugelblitz”. Peter Fill also relied on the Ultner's services. Kuppelwieser was von Allmen's preferred candidate after he stepped in once last winter and apparently left a lasting impression. After the Swiss talent (first podium finish in Kvitfjell in February) extended his contract with Head, the supplier will place the Ultner at his side in the future. “That tops it all off,” says von Allmen happily in the Swiss tabloid View.

Kuppelwieser enjoys an excellent reputation, says von Allmen: “Beat Feuz’s successes show that he is a top man. Sepp has a very calm demeanor, that's important to me." So it shouldn't be down to the skis in the coming World Cup winter - von Allmen will have to do the rest himself with hard work and a lot of courage on the World Cup downhill runs.
