But now comes exciting news that Brathen is polishing his shoes and sharpening his skates once again – just five months after saying goodbye.

On Thursday, Brathen will hold a press conference with his sponsor partner Red Bull – where they will talk about future plans. According to several independent sources of TV2, the press conference will be about the return of Clutches and the change of national team to Brazil.

Sports Director: No comment

TV2 wrote that the Norwegian Ski Federation was positive about the change in the national team of Praathen.

– We do not want to answer questions about Lucas until he holds a press conference on Thursday, says communications director Espen Graf.
