ELEVEN! Yes, this is Fuxi Racing USA’s eleventh year in business. Fueled by the charismatic life and energy of Franz Fuchsberger, Fuxi Racing has evolved from a small trailer set up in to a full retail shop with locations in Copper Mountain, Edwards Colorado, and Mt. Hood, Oregon.
After moving from Salzburg, Austria Franz spent a season at Boyne Mountain, Michigan during the 1983/84 season. The next season Franz moved to Big Sky Montana, where he was introduced to Powder 8 Skiing. It was through Powder 8 Skiing Franz truly made his mark in the skiing world, with several repeated world championships. Today Franz’s legacy is carried through FR USA. Originally, the company started as a Schneider dealership. After finding other suppliers and sources, Franz decided to brand the company with his own name “Fuxi” (His nick name in German, Fox).
If you haven’t had the chance to meet Franz aka “Fuxi”, chances are you may have heard of him. If you are an avid ski racer you won’t need to look far to find him. He’ll find you, as his constantly on the hill chatting to everyone he comes into contact with. Today you can find Franz racing on the USSA Maters circuit, as well as the Nastar National Championships. Though Franz, is out promoting FR, he’s no slouch on the race course as he has won several Nastar National Champions, and is the 2012 Overall National Down Hill Masters Champion.
