Didier Cuche retires in style

After 17 years on the racing circuit, the Swiss racer Didier Cuche retired from ski racing in Schladming, Austria this weekend.

Cuche made his final run dressed in traditional mountain clothing, with a flat cap and a rucksack on his back, and on his traditional wooden skis and leather boots, finished off with the slowest run of his career.

What a way to retire! There wasn’t a dry eye in the house (or on the mountain).
