Gauthier de Tessières (born 9 November 1981) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from France, and has competed in two Winter Olympics and five World Championships.[1] He made his breakthrough on the Alpine Skiing World Cup in a giant slalom in Val-d'Isère in December 2008, where after finishing 30th in the first run to narrowly qualify for the second run, he worked his way up to finish third overall, bettering his previous World Cup personal best of 15th.[2] He won the silver medal in the super-G at the 2013 World Championships, after being added to the French team as an injury replacement.[3][4] De Tessières announced his retirement from competition in January 2014 after he was not selected for the 2014 Winter Olympics.[5]
