Salomon is out of the US racing market. They are not out of the world racing market. Simple economics dictate moves like this from time to time. Racing has proven to be very inconsistant as a marketing tool in the US. Even when a high profile US racer has success on the world wide stage, it often has minimal effect on US sales.
Cases in point.......
Head has possibly the highest profile racer in the world and they build some fine skis. Yet, they are not making any reasonable market share headway in the states.
K2 has zero presence in racing and some may question the skiability of some of their offerings. Yet, they are more dominant in the US market than any company in the last 15 years.
Given these examples as case studies, it might make some sense for Salomon not to invest in racing in the US.
