The 22 year-old French star, ranked second in the 2019 Slalom World Cup behind Marcel Hirscher, will be equipped with Dynastar skis, Lange ski boots and Look bindings until the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing .
After only 25 starts in World Cup, Noel counts 4 podium finishes including 3 victories in Wengen, Kitzbühel and Soldeu and he is naturally one of the contenders for the Slalom crystal globe in the next years.
"It was important for me to sign during the offseason because during the winter we don’t have time to think about it and it allows me to have more free spirit. Knowing that I’m linked with Dynastar for 3 years reassures me and shows the mutual trust that has been built up over the years. My goals for next winter? In Slalom, I hope to continue the momentum of last season even if it will not be easy but I hope to play a leading role and be regular. In Giant Slalom, I would like to progress and take starts in the World Cup, it is one of my main objectives."
