I'm guessing Candide's making a shit load of money!
I think, that back a year ago, JP and JF told Salomon that at the end of their contracts they were going to go to this new Ski company, Armada. Now Salomon sees that Pilou isn't in many comps, their thinking of kicking him off the team. So half of there team is gone, almost. So they are freak'n and they go to Candide, they probably know his contracts almost up. And they offer him a huge contract deal! So the point is that the rumer that Candide was getting a milloin dollers isn't so far from the truth.
