Miller sues ski sup­plier Head, eyes rac­ing with other brand

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

VI­ENNA » Six-time Olympic medal­ist Bode Miller has sued ski man­u­fac­turer Head as he wants to re­sume World Cup rac­ing with a dif­fer­ent equip­ment sup­plier.

Miller ended his nearly 10-year­long part­ner­ship with the Aus­tri­an­based com­pany in 2015 and signed an agree­ment not to wear a dif­fer­ent ski brand in World Cup or world championship races for the fol­low­ing two years.

The Amer­i­can, who sat out last season, now plans to re­turn to the World Cup on skis from New York­based brand Bomber, which he helped de­velop, and has asked the court to void his agree­ment with Head.

In a state­ment on the com­pany’s Face­book page on Monday, Head CEO Jo­han Eliasch said he’s “truly very dis­ap­pointed to see that Bode has no in­ten­tion to honor his word and that he in­tends to breach our agree­ment to that ef­fect.”
