Vortex about Kriechmayr

Vincent Kriechmayr (car number 7) is part of the starting field. The world champion only tested himself free on Wednesday after a corona infection, and was able to compete in the Super G yesterday (9th), but did not complete any official downhill training. A special permit from the jury was therefore required to give the Upper Austrian the right to start.

German quintet

The only German downhill winners in Wengen are Willi Bogner (1960) and Markus Wasmeier (1987). This year five DSV athletes are at the start. As fifth from Bormio, Dominik Schwaiger (car number 8) only proved his qualities at the end of December. Andreas Sander can also build on a good starting number (16). Romed Baumann (19) and Josef Ferstl (28) did well in yesterday’s Super G with top 6 placements. The German squad is completed by Simon Jocher (40).

Once a year, the entourage of alpine skiers can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. And there is one of the downhill classics par excellence. Anyone who is self-respecting in the scene definitely wants to win this race at least once. However, today we are witnessing an abbreviated version. In any case, the entire distance, with a length of almost four and a half kilometers and a difference in altitude of more than 1,000 meters, is hardly ever driven. Today we don’t even get to a three-kilometer competition distance. From the start at 2,025 meters, it goes down 738 meters in altitude to the finish. The course set by Hannes Trinkl shows the way. The FIS race director scored 35 goals.
