Lindsey Vonn a Head Case? Rossignol to Head Switch Appears Imminent

What if Tiger Woods showed up on the golf course sporting K-Swiss?  Well, the skiing equivalent happened on Thursday at New Zealand’s Coronet Peak.  Lindsey Vonn, the greatest women’s alpine skier in American history and defending two-time overall World Cup champion, was seen making turns on Head skis!  Vonn has skied for Rossignol her entire career.  A switch had been rumored for a few weeks now, and seeing Vonn on Head skis at Coronet Peak seems to confirm that those rumors are in fact, true.

It would be quite a coup for Head, especially considering this is an Olympic year.  Vonn’s best friend and closest rival on the World Cup, Germany’s Maria Riesch is part of the Head team.  Now the two gal-pals will be able to swap clothes and skis!
