Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henri Duvillard (born December 23, 1947 in Meg ve, Haute-Savoie) is a French former alpine ski racer. He is one of just seven men to win World Cup races in every discipline contested at the time. Duvillard's World Cup career lasted from its inception in 1967 until 1973, during which time he won six races, including the prestigious Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen, Switzerland. His best results came in 1971 and 1972, when he finished second in the overall standings, behind the legendary Gustav Th ni in consecutive seasons. Troubles with the French national team leadership led him to retire from World Cup competition, and he moved on to the United States. In November 1974, Duvillard joined the U.S. pro tour and finished second (to American Hank Kashiwa) for the 1975 season (Duvillard won more money, but Kashiwa won on points). Duvillard dominated the tour in 1976, and became the pro champion at age 28.show more
